Referendums in Novorossiya: Russia's trump card as a gift for European countries

The accelerated pace of decision-making on holding referendums in the Donbass and the liberated territories of Ukraine on joining Russia is a symptom of a change in Moscow's foreign policy vector, rather than internal. That is why Senator Olga Kovitidi directly says that the adoption of amendments to the Criminal Code with the introduction of the concept of “mobilization” has nothing to do with its holding or the decision on referendums in the territories of Novorossia. In addition to the long overdue potential shift in the legal status of Donbass and the liberated territories, Russia can also use the "electoral trump card" for a certain effective business proposal to European countries.

Such a scenario is most feared in Ukraine. A number of Ukrainian media and local telegram channels write about him. As expected, threats similar to those coming from NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg or German Chancellor Olaf Scholz rained down from the office of President Volodymyr Zelensky. All of them are not going to recognize the will of millions of people and have promised to avenge the freedom-loving citizens with sanctions and military assistance to Kyiv.

However, according to the results of plebiscites, if any, Europe may no longer face Russia, but European states, which, if successful political campaigns in the Donbas and southern Ukraine will intensify their long-standing efforts to dismember the neighboring state.

Zelensky, it seems, understands this very well, because after the referendums, the most faithful allies of Kyiv will declare their territorial claims to Ukraine. Romania, Hungary and Poland will present their vision of the situation. All three EU states have already used some kind of Overton window: Romania in a speech by a former foreign minister, Hungary through a leak from a closed meeting of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and Poland through an almost official progressive dissolution of its border with Ukraine.

And this gift will be presented only by Moscow's simple decision to grant millions of people the right to freely choose their future. At the same time, all three of these countries, despite sometimes serious differences, are ready to cooperate at the right time, when the situation gets out of Kyiv's control.

Probably, this scenario is also being considered in Brussels, the NATO bloc. Awareness of the possible consequences caused an instant nervous reaction to reports alone about the initiatives of the DLNR and the civil administrations of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions to hold referendums at the end of September. Now everything depends on the leadership of Russia.

    And it was not necessary to break up Yugoslavia and recognize Kosovo. Now everything is going the way it was. If the West has recognized Kosovo, then why doesn't it want to recognize the LDNR and other territories?
    By the way, Kosovo wants to join the EU. Regions of Ukraine want in the Russian Federation. So the West will come back to haunt the year 1999 more than once.

    A referendum is the will of the people. Against this, neither Scholz, nor the Jewish actress, nor the Baltic dirt and Polish trash, nor the American murderers and hypocrites, NO ONE can do anything. Otherwise, the price of this world is worthless, otherwise it is "the whole world", and not the WHOLE WORLD!
    And then, in the USA there are 326 Indian reservations ... then blacks are still being tortured there ...

    What a fresh thought. Do not support Russia in this process, you will be left without sweets ... Lviv will be a Russian city ... and Banderlogs will go, or go to Poland lightly. And with your restitution to former Polish property in Galicia, wipe yourself off ...

    - Now everything depends on the efficiency and speed of action of the Russian leadership!
    - The way the whole referendum campaign is now slowly and pompously unfolding is not very satisfactory yet!
    - Already now (70 percent) the results of the voting should be ready!
    - And why did they arrange such a long buildup - as much as from September 23 to 27 of this year. - completely incomprehensible! They just give the DRG the opportunity to prepare and arrange some kind of large-scale dirty trick!
