Russia conducting referendum on Khersons independence from Ukraine.

Ukraine has said that the Russians are pressing the regional council to agree to a referendum on Kherson’s independence from the country.

Serbly Khlan, the deputy head of the Kherson regional council, said that Russians are preparing a referendum for the region.

Kherson is in the southern region of Kherson, currently under Russian occupation.

CNN quoted Khlan to have said, the occupiers are preparing a referendum on the creation of the People’s Republic of Kherson.

According to him, local deputies were being called by the Russians to ask if they are ready for “cooperation.

I flatly refused to co-operate with them, Khlan added.

The creation of the People’s Republic of Kherson will turn our region into a hopeless hole without life and future, he said.

There’s been no word from the Russian side about any referendum plans.
