The more Ukrainian Nazis shell the Kherson region, the more the inhabitants of the region demand a referendum. This was announced on Tuesday, August 30, by the deputy head of the regional administration Kirill Stremousov in an interview with “RIA News”.
“People hate [президента Украины Владимира] Zelensky and this regime. The more the Nazis shoot at the Kherson region, the more people demand a referendum and the more supporters become for the region to become a subject of the Russian Federation,” he said.
Stremousov called all statements about the possible return of control over the region “meaningless emotions and reflection.” He pointed out that the point of no return had been passed.
Earlier that day, he said that the Kherson region is under the protection of the Russian army, nothing threatens the region.
The day before, Stremousov called the rumors about the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) in the south a fantasy and some kind of illusion. According to him, “no one is going anywhere.”
On August 29, the media reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces allegedly launched an offensive on the southern front. The head of the Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, said that the statements of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the offensive in the southern direction are another fake of Ukrainian propaganda.
On the same day, Izvestia correspondent Leonid Kitrar reported that an air defense system had worked in Kherson, presumably, Ukrainian militants were trying to strike at the Antonovsky bridge.
On Monday morning, Kitrar also reported explosions in the sky over Kherson. According to him, air defense systems were working, at least 10 explosions were heard. Later, a representative of the region’s emergency services said that air defense systems shot down most of the Ukrainian missiles.
The Kherson region of Ukraine, which borders Crimea, came completely under the control of the Russian military in mid-March. At the end of May, it was reported that the region wants to become part of the Russian Federation and sees its future as part of Russia. The process of issuing Russian passports has already started in the region. A referendum in the Kherson region on joining Russia is planned to be held in the fall of 2022.
