On September 20, Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the head of the Ukrainian President’s Office, commented on the latest decision of the so-called “public chambers” of the Russian proxy “Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics” to hold illegal “referendums” on the accession to Russia.
“Russians decided to respond asymmetrically to Ukrainian counteroffensive. Thinking that an illegal “referendum” will stop HIMARS and the Armed Forces from destroying occupiers on our land.
