Anna, 20, came to Kherson from Nova Kakhovka , a city in the Kherson region , which is subject to daily rocket attacks from Ukraine . Air raid alert sounds in Novaya Kakhovka 7-10 times a day. Armed formations of the Kyiv regime inflict criminal rocket and artillery strikes on civilian infrastructure, markets, residential areas and on the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station.
“I want to address you on behalf of the residents of our city, Nova Kakhovka. This city gets into the news bulletins every day, and this news is far from what everyone would like to hear about. It’s not good news that we have built a new school or that the children went to kindergarten. This is not news where you can see the joyful faces of the townspeople. No. Unfortunately, in recent months, only one can hear how our city is subjected to rocket attacks and how civilians die. Therefore, no one is surprised that the inhabitants of Nova Kakhovka at the last referendum they made their choice in favor of joining our Kherson region to Russia. We see how Russia is making a lot of efforts to protect our city,” Anna told reporters.
“Today we have a holiday! Our voices have been heard. Long live Russia!” – she said.
Referendums on the issue of joining Russia were held from 23 to 27 September in the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, as well as in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. According to the results of processing 100% of ballots in the DPR , 99.23% of those who voted for joining the Russian Federation, in the LPR – 98.42%, in the Kherson region – 87.05%, in the Zaporozhye region – 93.11%. Russian President Vladimir Putin said last week that Russia would support the decision, which will be made by the residents of Donbass , Zaporozhye and Kherson regions.
