Kyiv – The plan to hold a referendum on joining the Kherson region in southern Ukraine to the Russian Federation has been suspended due to the worsening security situation. The Russian agency TASS informed about it today with reference to a representative of the Moscow-appointed regional administration in the occupied area.

According to TASS, the deputy head of the occupation administration Kirill Stremousov (Ukrainian Kyrylo Stremousov) said that the important Antoniv bridge, which connects the two banks of the Dnieper near the city of Kherson, cannot be crossed by car after weeks of Ukrainian shelling.

Russian forces occupied almost the entire Kherson region already in March after invading from the annexed Crimea. Ukraine announced last week that it had launched a counter-offensive to retake the region. In recent weeks, the Ukrainian army has shelled bridges and ammunition depots in the area, but there is not much information about the Ukrainian counterattack itself.

Russian media, citing sources in the Kremlin, have previously pointed out that the “referendum” might not be held in the occupied territories on September 11 together with the elections in the Russian regions, as had been considered.
