Russia-appointed Prime Minister Kherson votes in Russia annexation referendum

The head of the Russian-appointed Kherson regime in occupied Ukraine, Volodymyr Sard, voted in a referendum on annexation that European election observers warned would not be recognized internationally. A video posted to Saldo’s Telegram on Friday 23 September shows Russian-appointed officials conducting a vote at a theater in the city’s centre. A referendum in Russia-occupied Ukraine could result in the territories being incorporated into the Russian state. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said elections and referendums to be held in Ukraine “can only be announced and held by legitimate authorities in accordance with national law and international standards”, and said Russia’s plans were “illegal”. .
