I was not afraid to go. If people here under shells are not afraid to go and cast votes, then how can I be afraid. At the very least what I can do for Donbass is be here today, and later tell the truth to the Western public. [Translated from Russian]

Gill described the election process Russian authorities used in the occupied territories as “actual transparency”, claiming to have had “full access to talk to anybody”, and described voters as “excited” and not intimidated.

Corresponding elections

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.
