The crash of the Russian stock market comes after the Kherson region’s public council asked the head of the region, Volodymyr Saldo, to hold an urgent referendum on Russia’s accession.
The Russian-controlled council of Kherson believes that holding an immediate referendum to join the Russian Federation would secure the territory of the Kherson region and “restore historical justice.”
Kherson Regional Public Council chairman Volodymyr Ovcharenko said the referendum should be held as soon as possible.
The news comes after the public chambers of the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics (LPR and DPR) proposed an immediate referendum on joining the Russian Federation.
According to the President of the People’s Council of the Republic, Denis Miroshnichenko, a referendum will be held on Tuesday, September 20, from September 23 to 27.
