There are few people in the occupied regions who want to join the Russian Federation - media

Russian media , referring to sources close to the Kremlin, they said that there are few people in the occupied territories who want to “join” the Russian Federation. This was confirmed by the results of a closed survey.

In July, the Russian invaders conducted polls in the occupied territories of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions about “joining” with Russia. This idea was supported by only 30%. This was reported by the Russian publication Meduza on Friday, August 5, citing sources close to the Kremlin.

The media reports that the efforts of Russian propagandists do not bring results and Russia's support in the temporarily occupied territories is weak.

“Two interlocutors close to the AP (President's office – ed.) said … that in mid-July, a closed sociological survey was conducted in the occupied territories of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions about whether the local residents want to join Russia. According to its results, for Approximately 30% were in favor of joining Ukraine, the same number (under occupation) spoke in favor of keeping the regions within Ukraine, while the rest “difficult to answer”.

The Kremlin believes that despite such low rates, “referendums will be held properly “.

In addition, sources said that September 11 as the date of the referendum is rather conditional. It can be held on another day.
