The enemy hopes to hold pseudo-elections to local self-government bodies and parliament in September 2023 in the temporarily occupied territories, but cannot recruit collaborators.
The obstacle is the slow pace of passporting on seized lands. The occupiers lack both members of territorial polling stations and “party members”. It is not even possible to recruit policemen to ensure order with the passport of the Russian Federation.
Well, not to mention the electorate, because unlike the pseudo-referendum, which the Russians were never able to hold, in the fake elections it is necessary to vote with a Russian passport. At the same time, it will not be possible to arrange a circus with voting “at home” for 4 days to hide the lack of turnout.
Moscow set a task for the collaborators to increase the pace of passporting at any cost.
