“I inform you that, in accordance with the decree, the referendum will be held from September 23 to September 27, 2022. The decree determines the procedure for organizing voting and holding a referendum on the territory of the Kherson region, as well as establishes administrative and criminal liability for violation of these rules. I am asking for help in holding a referendum to the Russian Federation and other states in order to assist in establishing a lawful constitutional order on the territory of the Kherson region”.
