The occupiers are trying to keep the situation under their control, so they are strengthening the administrative and police regime, inspecting homes and exerting psychological pressure on citizens.

This was reported in the press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As it became known, the occupiers intensified work on the preparation and holding of the so-called "referendum" in the temporarily captured territories of Ukraine. 

In the settlements of the Kherson region, representatives of the Russian occupation authorities, under the pretext of quality distribution of humanitarian aid, are trying to obtain their personal data from local residents.

The formation of the so-called "election commissions" continues.

"In the city of Starobilsk, Luhansk region, the occupation authorities forbade the local population to leave the city between September 23 and 27.

According to available information, the occupiers are creating armed groups to go around homes and force people to participate in the so-called "referendum".

Preparations are being made for the filming of propagandistic mass media stories about such "active participation of local residents in voting," the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said.

They also added that in the temporarily captured territory of the Zaporizhzhia region, local residents are promised cash rewards and household appliances for providing passport data and obtaining citizenship of the Russian Federation.
