Our Association has repeatedly reported that the Russian occupiers have significant problems with “political cover-up” of their own criminal occupation regime in the south of mainland Ukraine, in Kherson and Zaporizhia regions.

After all, a number of factors hinder the illegal formation of another fake “people’s republics”. First, it is the mass refusal of the population, business, self-government bodies to cooperate with the occupiers and the pro-Ukrainian sentiments of the vast majority of residents of the south of mainland Ukraine.

Under such conditions, the illegal formation of even a fake “separate governing apparatus” becomes impossible for the aggressor state.

The second is the lack of control of Russian troops over the city of Zaporizhzhya and the maximum vulnerability of the Russia’s occupying forces on the right bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson Region due to Ukrainian Army’s activities.

Under such conditions, as we have already reported, the aggressor state considered their fake illegal “accession” to the Crimea in relation to the districts of the Kherson Region among the options for “arrangement” of the occupied territories.

Aggressor is planning criminally a similar approach against the occupied areas of Zaporizhzhya region, but with the so called illegal “accession” to similar fake, terrorist “Donetsk people’s republic”.

So, as far as we do know, the aggressor’s key collaborators have arrived from Crimea, together with the Russian generals, at the key base of the Russian occupiers in the Kherson region – the airfield in Chaplynka.

Fake “leaders of the republic of Crimea” held a “meeting” there, organized by the occupiers, with the so called “mayors” and “village heads”, appointed by the aggressor illegally in the Kherson Region, where they illegally announced the “process of integration with the republic of Crimea”.

The “actual limits” of such criminal “expansion” of the fake “republic of Crimea” according to the aggressor’s plan, will be determined by the front line with the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
