Media: Kremlin decides to postpone official 'annexation' of Ukrainian territories

The Kremlin decided not to hurry with the official «accession» «LNR», «DNR» and occupied territories of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. «Meduza» writes about this, citing sources.

Today, State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin announced that meetings on the “annexation” of Ukrainian territories will be held on October 3 and 4.

“Volodin, as always, was ready to run ahead of the locomotive and get ahead of the agenda, when a clear decision on the dates of the final & # 171; accession & # 187; not yet,” one source close to the Putin administration explained. His words were confirmed by another interlocutor close to the Kremlin.

According to them, the Kremlin decided “not to rush things” when “circumstances do not require it.” “Everything will be connected anyway. Only without haste,” this is how the interlocutors of the publication formulate the tactics of the Russian authorities.

According to them, Moscow did not hurry with the “annexation” of Ukrainian territories, since “the PR effect from this will be almost zero” against the background mobilization. According to sources, the Kremlin understands that so far the Russians have not been convinced that Russia needs these territories in principle.

Although the state and pro-government media tried to prove that Russia is annexing economically successful regions, and holding such “referendums” and “accessions” is an absolutely “normal process”, including for Western countries (among the evidence cited by propaganda is the annexation of Texas to the United States in the first half of the 19th century).

At the same time, one of Meduza’s sources close to the Kremlin noted that the delay in the official “annexation” of the territories may be due to the fact that the Russian authorities want to “leave a gap” for negotiations on Ukraine with Western countries.

“Putin believes that there is nothing to talk about with (Ukrainian President Vladimir) Zelensky — he is controlled (from the West). (In the Kremlin) they can offer to leave Crimea, the territories of the DPR and LPR to Russia within the actual borders. Kherson and Zaporozhye regions can become states recognized by Russia, on whose territory Russian troops are stationed. This is an acceptable (for the Russian authorities) scenario,” he says.

Despite this, according to sources, Russian systemic parties are already preparing to open branches in the occupied territories.

< p> However, as writes the edition, the dissatisfaction of Russians with mobilization now remains the main problem for the Kremlin. According to interlocutors close to the Presidential Administration, by order of the Kremlin, Russia has already conducted a closed opinion poll on this topic; the authorities did not like his results. “It shook everyone (Russians),” one of the sources explained.
