The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

Moscow to Kiev: 'You sent this to the wrong address'




On August 8, the authorities in the Zaporozhye region, which is partially controlled by Russian forces, officially confirmed their intention to hold a referendum. After a vote, the head of the Zaporozhye region Yevgeny Balitsky signed an order on holding a referendum on joining Russia.

The Russian military are currently in control of the Kherson region and part of the Zeporozhye region, including the cities of Melitopol and Energodar. Civil-military administrations were created in these regions. They both declared their intentions to join Russia and are currently preparing to hold referendums.

According to the Deputy Head of the civil-military administration of the Kherson region, referendums in both territories can take place on the same day and are scheduled for the first half of September.

In turn, the Kiev regime considers the lost territories as temporarily occupied areas. President Vladimir Zelensky warned that if referendums are held in the southern regions, Russia will lose “any possibility of negotiations” with Ukraine. 

The Kremlin responded, claiming that Zelensky had the “wrong address.”  The referendums are held by the residents of these regions and not by Moscow. Kremlin spokesman advised the President of Ukraine to turn to his citizens and ask why there are so many of them who do not want to live in his country.
