PUTIN MAY DECLARE ANNEXATION OF MORE REGIONS OF UKRAINE ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2022

President of Russia Vladimir Putin, will likely declare the annexation of four more regions of Ukraine on Friday, September 30, 2022.

 

This development is the outcrop of a set of dissembling referendums held in occupied parts of Ukraine over the last week.  

 

In spite of the description of the referendum as being illegitimate by western countries, voting in the referendums has been taking place in Donetsk and Luhansk in east Ukraine, and Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south.

 

Voting will be concluded on Tuesday.

 

The Russian president is slated to address both houses of the Russian Parliament on Friday and is widely expected to use the address to formally declare the accession of the occupied regions of Ukraine to the Russian Federation.

 

In an intelligence update on Tuesday, Britain’s Defense Ministry said, “Russia’s leaders almost certainly hope that any accession announcement will be seen as a vindication of the ‘special military operation’ and will consolidate patriotic support for the conflict.

 

“This aspiration will likely be undermined by the increasing domestic awareness of Russia’s recent battlefield sets-backs and significant unease about the partial mobilisation announced last week.”
