The first day of voting in the referenda on joining Russia has ended

MOSCOW, September 24 – RIA Novosti. In the LPR, DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, the first day of voting in the referendum on joining Russia has come to an end.
During the day, local officials recorded attempts at provocations in various cities of the liberated territories, but there were no serious incidents.

Vote

The plebiscite will last five days and end on September 27, Tuesday. Moreover, it is on the final day that voting will take place at the polling stations, and before that – in the adjacent territories and, according to applications, at home. It has to do with security measures.
Residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions are invited to answer the question: “Do you support secession from Ukraine, the formation of the region as an independent state and joining Russia?”
At the same time, the wording at the referendum in the republics of Donbass sounds differently: “Are you in favor of joining Russia as a subject of the Federation?”
It is expected that the preliminary results of the voting will become known on September 27-28.
