Ein wieder knapper Sammler am 14. Mai 2022:
• Das britische Intel Update:
The Russian-imposed military-civilian administration in Kherson announced they will ask Russia to include Kherson Region in the Russian Federation.
A central part of Russia’s original invasion plan was highly likely to use rigged referendums to place the majority of Ukraine’s regions under long-term pro-Russian authority.
The fact that Russia has only succeeded in imposing a pro-Russian local leadership in Kherson highlights the failure of Russia’s invasion to make progress towards its political objectives in Ukraine.
If Russia carries out an accession referendum in Kherson, it will almost certainly manipulate the results to show a clear majority in favour of leaving Ukraine. Citizens in the Kherson region are likely to continue to demonstrate their opposition to Russian occupation.
The eightieth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.
russian enemy continues to conduct a full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. The main goal is to establish full control over the territory of Donetsk, Luhansk and Kherson oblasts and ensure the stability of the land corridor with the temporarily occupied Ukrainian Crimea.
