Wall Street Journal: Pro-Russian separatists prepare for referendum in eastern Ukraine
The Guardian: Donetsk referendum goes ahead with eastern Ukraine on brink of civil war
A group of armed Kremlin-backed rebels in possession of a 100,000 ballots already marked with a yes vote for the May 11 referendum in Donetsk Oblast were captured and the ballots seized during the Ukrainian governments anti-terrorist operation near the rebel-occupied city of Sloviansk on May 10.
In addition, a Kalashnikov rifle, Makarov pistol, plus ammunition were seized, Obezrevatel reported. Earlier, Ukrainska Pravada reported that the separatists had seized 80 schools in Donetsk city to carry out their referendum.
Local news website Novosti Donbassa reported that at polling stations in some Donetsk schools voting had already begun.
It’s all a farce. Ours and theirs.
Let’s send in Jimmy Carter to observer. /s
Typical Soviet/Pan-Russian/Putinista type of politics. Bully and buy what you can. Create a facade of a vote if necessary. The sacred duty of Russia chauvinism requires it, mostly to enrich the Russian oligarchs, though.
sounds like the Ukrainian separatists have taken ballot fraud from Obama style democrats and the DNC. they probably have an advisor from the dems hired.
“Typical.......Democrats......type of politics. Bully and buy what you can.”
I modified that statement slightly to reflect reality right here in the U.S.
