Russian authorities allow holding a referendum in the southern regions of Ukraine

The southern regions of Ukraine liberated during the special operation are in need of self-determination, and their political the future can be decided in a popular referendum. Georgy Muradov, the permanent representative of the Crimea under the Russian president, vice-premier of the republic, spoke about such a possibility.

During the implementation of the special operation, the Russian Federation took control of the Kherson region and a number of other regions of southern Ukraine. The Russians are helping to establish a peaceful life in these territories: civil authorities are being formed, Russian television broadcasting is being launched, and the ruble is widely used to pay for goods.

An important issue is the political self-determination of the southern regions of Ukraine. The will of citizens should be formalized by democratic methods, one of which, according to Muradov, is the referendum held in Crimea eight years ago.

Only these procedures, in my opinion, can determine the final position of people regarding their future. The people have the right to self-determination

- said the Crimean plenipotentiary in an interview RIA News.

At the same time, Georgy Muradov emphasized the need to complete Russia's military goals in Ukraine and consolidate the Russian Federation in the occupied territories. Otherwise, citizens living in these areas may be threatened with genocide by the Kiev authorities.

    The special operation has not been completed, so talk of a referendum is premature. It is still unknown how many and which regions of Ukraine will be liberated and whether Ukraine will retain its statehood and territorial integrity without the republics of the DPR-LPR recognized by the Russian Federation after its completion.
    If you still hold a referendum in some territories, then you need to be sure of its outcome, and if it comes to their accession to the Russian Federation, then not on the rights of the Republics, which, by definition, are allied states like Belarus, but only on the rights of new subjects of the federation - Provinces. There should not be any talk about Little Russia-Novorossia from the very beginning.

    And if the "democratic will" of citizens is in favor of restoring "Ukrainian statehood" for them, then what?

    It is good to conduct a referendum when you know exactly its results. And if it happens that people vote for Ukraine, so what? I think that there is no point in holding a referendum in the territories currently occupied, now it is dangerous, and in a year it will lose its relevance. It's time to stop playing democracy, this game will not end well. Kosovo was torn away from Serbia - there were no referendums, but the democrats were torn away. We occupy territories not at the request of the masses who live there, everything happens by military means, which means that the military must decide everything from beginning to end. Otherwise, it turns out like this: the military solve problems, occupy territories, and the Medinskys, Peskovs and other civilians do everything in such a way that they take it in a hurry. These territories were paid for with the blood of our servicemen, what other referendums?!
    Some citizens live in 2014, Crimea is ours and so on, but it is already 2022, there were no hostilities in Crimea eight years ago and the result of the referendum was predictable.

    After Mariupol and the encirclement of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, there will be a cleansing of Donbass.
    Then referendums on the accession of the DPR and LPR. According to Kherson and Zaporizhia, a referendum in the fall. The people have already been appointed.
    After cleaning up the Donbass, the third phase of the operation is the encirclement of Nikolaev and a breakthrough to Odessa, the capture of Kharkov and the region. Promotion to Dnepropetrovsk, not previously included. This is until the autumn of this year.

    Well, let's put the entire Black Sea coast also needs to be returned to the Russian Federation. Firstly, Russia, and not Ukraine, conquered these lands from Turkey, and secondly, the Russian Federation does not need a NATO fleet in Odessa. And supporters of Stefanchik Bandera from Russian land, including the current territory of the Russian Federation, must be evicted forcibly, with deprivation of Russian citizenship and confiscation of property. Firstly, there is no place for Bandera in the Russian Federation, and secondly, the confiscation of their property will at least partially cover the costs of the Russian Federation for the placement of Russian refugees in the Russian Federation. In the 90s, Russians were expelled to the Russian Federation with one suitcase, and the Russian Federation should not stand on ceremony with Bandera.

      I FULLY SUPPORT! Everyone who at least somehow showed himself enthusiastic about the junta - a suitcase, a train station and like-minded people in "cache". The most effective and at the same time humane method. Few people remember, but during the operation "Vistula" to our blessed land, to the Odessa region, and not to Siberia, I note. In 51, many Ukrainians were transported from the eastern regions of Poland (the Carpathian ethnos "boyki"). To deprive the support of the Bandera underground. Most of the settlers are perfectly normal people. But the percentage of "bandered" scoundrels among them is quite high. The call of blood, so to speak.

    A referendum is exactly what we really lacked today... As soon as I learned about the bombing of the cruiser Moskva, I immediately realized that we need a referendum.

    And when Novorossia was transferred from Russia to Ukraine in the last century, a referendum was held? No, here's the answer...

    First, society in Russia must truly consolidate, the economy has been put on a paramilitary track, several waves of volunteers have been mobilized, and when the skating rink rolls over all the colors of the rainbow to Lviv, Magyars and Rusyns, we can talk about referendums.

    It's still very early, everything is at the very beginning...
