Attach the Donbass like Crimea and proclaim a people’s republic a Kherson. That would be the plan for Mosca in Ukraine as revealed by the States Unitedciting “extremely credible” intelligence sources that Russia will try to accomplish both goals by mid-May. This is what the United States ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe explained yesterday in a briefing at the State Department in Washington. Michael Carpenter.

“Reports state that Moscow plans to organize referendum on joining Russia in mid-May in Donbass, more precisely in the People’s Republic of Donetsk and in that of Luganskand that he is considering a similar plan for Kherson, to try to add a veneer of democratic or electoral legitimacy to these operations, “Ambassador Carpenter said, adding that” the Russians are kidnapping local officials in the cities they control in Ukraine. eastern and southern to replace them with groups loyal to Moscow, while school directors, journalists, local activists, municipal officials are also disappearing. “Not only that. According to the ambassador,” more recently, there have also been reports that the occupying forces have interrupted Internet and accesses to cell phones in these regions to disable the flow of reliable information“.

Carpenter concluded by stating that “sadly, we were more right than wrong in exposing what we believe could happen in this war,” but he also noted that the Russian plan may not be successful. Western officials describe Putin’s army under pressure for nine weeks in the offensive even though it is still capable of targeting strategic areas of southern Ukraine, including the city of Mariupol, where heavy shelling prevented many civilians from escaping to safety. Indeed, the British Ministry of Defense pointed out that more than a quarter of the Russian units sent to Ukraine have been damaged to the point of being probably “ineffective in combat”. Therefore, the last word would not yet be said.
