Russian public observers are brought to sham elections in temporarily occupied territories
Invading forces in the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories couldn't find a sufficient number of public observers among the locals for the so-called elections, so they invited them from Russia
This is reported by the Center for National Resistance.
"The Russian "elections" are a farce and a propaganda imitation, where the result and even the turnout are known in advance. One of the main roles in this performance is played by observers who were forced by the Russians to be brought to the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories from the Russian Federation, because the locals refuse to participate in this show," the article says.
It is reported that under Russian law, there are public observers who have the right to be called such only if they are members of the Public Chamber, an advisory body controlled by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, as he and the governors he appoints approve the chamber's leadership.
It is the so-called public observers from Russia who will monitor the sham elections in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, as the local chambers established by the enemy occupiers did not find enough volunteers.
The Resistance calls on Ukrainians to ignore the 'elections' and not to participate in the propaganda play.
