“Today, I signed a decree on conducting a referendum regarding the territorial affiliation of the Zaporizhzhia region. It will take place from 23 to 27 September,” Balytskyi said.
He added that he had also signed a decree on forming “volunteer battalions” of the Zaporizhzhia region.
The residents of Kherson are afraid of Ukraine’s strikes, but their hate towards Russian servicemen is even stronger
Earlier today, the “public movement ‘Together with Russia’” asked Balytskyi to conduct a referendum on joining the Russian Federation “as soon as possible”.
The Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” and the Kherson region made similar statements about holding referendums on the same dates.
