According to Mexican writer Israel Arconada Gomez, the international observers did not record any facts "of pressure and bribing" at the referendum in the LPR. He added that "holding a referendum is a step of the political settlement of a conflict, the implementation of the people’s right to self-determination guaranteed by the UN Charter," noting that nobody was forced to participate. "The referendum was organized in accordance with accepted standards," he added.

Corresponding elections

illegitimate
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.
