Russian occupiers are trying to bribe residents of Kherson before conducting a pseudo-referendum, offering them "financial aid" in exchange for renunciation of their Ukrainian passports.

Quote: "Tactics of the occupiers are quite primitive: Russian puppets are purposefully blocking all payments to Ukrainians, thus creating a humanitarian crisis and simultaneously offering financial aid in exchange for a Russian passport and renunciation of Ukrainian citizenship. Some people have to resort to such humiliating conditions out of desperation, although there are very few such people."
Details: It was also reported that Russian authorities are adding deceased individuals to the occupying pension fund to inflate the index of pension payments to paint a rosy picture in the Russian media.
Thus, the occupiers are inflating the index of financial support of locals and embezzling money at the same time.
Occupiers are offering 10 thousand rubles for each vote at the pseudo-referendum to the residents of the occupied Kherson region.
It was previously reported that Russians have been failing the process of collection of passport details in the temporarily occupied territories. As a result, they are now increasing the scale of bribing the population, thus creating a social crisis and then issuing a one-time payment of 10 thousand rubles in exchange for a passport.
In the Kherson region, occupiers have created an "electoral commission" for conducting the "referendum for the integration into the Russian Federation". The so-called referendum is set to be conducted on 11 September.
