Russian officials gave this information. The referendum is somewhat supported by Russia and has been condemned by Ukraine and Western countries in the past as “blank rhetoric”. It is seen as a move by Russia to annex the region. The vote has been in Lugansk, in part Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhya and in the Donetsk region.
At the same time, voting is expected to start in Kherson on Friday morning. Russia also has full control of this region. A vote is being held to determine whether people want these areas to be included in Russia or not and the results are believed to be in favor of Russia. This would give Russia an opportunity to claim that attempts by Ukrainian forces to recapture territory were in fact attacks against Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin partially deployed 300,000 ‘reservists’ (reserve troops) before the referendum. .
