This was reported by the head of the Luhansk Regional Military District Administration Artem Lysohor.
He notes that the commissions will be conducting forced passportization in an intensified mode for the upcoming presidential election. The invaders counted the votes they needed allegedly from residents of the Luhansk region who did not receive a Russian passport.
"No one asks how the residents of the Luhansk region without a Russian passport voted in the September elections," writes Lysohor.
The head of the Regional Military Administration also says that in the occupied regions, the Russian invaders have increased the volume of civilian vehicles seized, according to the Kremlin's order. It requires that representatives of enterprises donate vehicles under a donation agreement.
