Individual Observers at the 2022 pseudo-referendum for the formal annexation of occupied territories of Luhansk to Russia

People are not afraid of anything, they calmly come to the election polls and express their will" The procedure corresponds to what I previously observed at polling stations in the Russian Federation and other countries, as I have been an observer for seven years. Organizers are serious about observing the secret of voting and keeping ballots.

We see no guns, nobody is being forced, everything happens freely. So we want to tell about it when we come back to Brazil, and we plan to do so.

What surprised me very much was the large number of people who come here to the polling stations. We are in a small town, so it’s surprising that so many people came to vote. In general, the election process is very well organized. This vote legitimizes the region being part of Russia. [Translated from Russian]

We are faced with a lot of propaganda from Western countries. Therefore, I am glad that I can personally verify what is happening here, see what is true and what is a lie. [Translated from Russian]

Corresponding elections

From 23 to 27 September 2022, the Russian forces organised a sham election process - pseudo-referendum as a pretext for the formal annexation of the regions of occupied Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson by Russia. The annexation of the four regions was announced on 30 September 2022.
From 8 to 10 September 2023, the Russian forces organised widely condemned regional and municipal elections in the regions of occupied Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson. The results were largely rejected by the international community, with North Korea and Syria being the only ones to explicitly recognise them.
During the “presidential elections” held in Russia from 15-17 March 2024, Vladislav Davankov (“New People” party), Nikolay Kharitonov (Communist Party), Vladimir Putin, and Leonid Slutsky (Liberal-Democratic Party) competed for the presidency. Enabled to run yet again by controversial constitutional amendments effective 4 July 2020, Putin dominated the “elections” together with his controlled “opposition” excluding genuine opposition figures. These “elections” occurred under Putin’s regime control, both within Russia and illegally in occupied Ukrainian territories, including Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, ARC and Sevastopol.
