In the LPR and DPR recognized the referenda as valid
More than half of the residents took part in referendums in the LPR, DPR and the Russian-controlled part of the Zaporozhye region, so they can be considered valid, local authorities said
The LPR considers the referendum on joining Russia to be held, since more than half of the inhabitants of the republic have already voted— according to the results of three days, the turnout was 76.09%, said the head of the CEC, Elena Kravchenko, RIA Novosti reports. In three days, 1 million 35422 ballots were issued at the polling stations, she said.
The referendum in the Donetsk People's Republic can also be considered valid, since more than 50% of voters have already voted, said Alexander Kofman, chairman of the DPR Public Chamber. According to the CEC of the DPR, according to the results of three days, the turnout in the region was 77.12%.
More than half of the voters voted in the Zaporozhye region— there, the turnout was 51.55%, taking into account those who voted abroad, said Galina Katyushchenko, chairwoman of the region's election commission. In total, more than 85 thousand citizens of the region took part in the referendum over three days, of which over 32 thousand voted outside of it. Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the military-civilian administration of the region, said that the referendum can be considered valid.
In the Kherson region, a little less people came to the referendum— 48.91% of voters voted, said Marina Zakharova, head of the election commission.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow would support the results of the referendum. At the same time, a number of states, including Serbia, Turkey and the G7 countries, have excluded their recognition. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in early August called holding referendums a condition for ending negotiations with Russia.
