Russia holds referenda to absorb parts of Ukraine

RRussian officials and their aides will hold sham referendums in the Ukrainian regions of Lugansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia from September 23-27 to integrate them into Russia. “I think people have been waiting for a referendum here for a long time, and it will probably be a political decision that will help keep civilians safe,” he added. claims Denis Pushilin, leader of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, which Russia recognizes as independent but the rest of the world recognizes as part of Ukraine. At Moscow’s request, Russian officials based in Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia followed Pushilin’s lead and also demanded reforms.

Russian President Vladimir Putin sees the conquest of Ukraine as the keystone of his strategy to rebuild the power and prestige that Russia lost after the collapse of the Soviet Union. In a February 21 speech, three days before starting a full-scale war against Ukraine, putin said its people: “Ukraine is not just a neighboring country for us. It is an inalienable part of our own history, culture and spiritual space. He argued that Ukraine as a separate political entity was established by Russia, and “to be more precise, by Bolshevik, Communist Russia”, after the Russian Revolution of 1917. Putin even equated the Ukraine to Crimea and insisted it was wrongly taken “away from Russia.

Eight years ago, Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula. In February 2014, Russian military came to Crimea and subjugated government buildings. Then in March, the Crimean government organized a fraudulent referendum; allegedly 96.8% of its inhabitants voted in favor of integrating the peninsula into Russia.

Russia is now doing the same in eastern Ukraine.

Analysts fear that Russia does not stop at the border between Russian-occupied Ukraine and the rest of the country. Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia make up only 15% of Ukraine, but if Russia can claim them as part of its territory, it would at least have a pretext to declare total war in the name of “defending the Russia”. land” on anyone attacking these areas.

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on September 22 that “Russian weapons, including strategic nuclear weapons and weapons based on new principles, could be used for the protection” of these territories after the referendums.

When Russia took control of Crimea in 2014, Trumpet editor-in-chief and editor Gerald Flurry wrote, “With one stroke, Russian President Vladimir Putin has redrawn Ukraine’s borders.” Mr. Flurry went on to explain that Ezekiel 38 is a prophecy about a modern Russia and that studying it can better help us understand Russia’s role in end-time geopolitics. He wrote:

[Ezekiel 38:2] speaks of Gog, Meshech and Tubal—all prophetic names for Russia…. Correctly translated, this verse also speaks of a “‘prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal” – a ruler of Russia. Who could it be? No politician could fulfill this role better than Vladimir Putin, and I don’t believe it is time for another man of such stature to step onto the world stage.

Mr. Flurry explains in his pamphlet The prophesied ‘Prince of Russia’, that Putin is prophesied to command a “giant strip of land”; it could mean that Putin will “conquer more nations of the former Soviet Union”. This forecast is being verified before our eyes.
