They wanted to bring Icelandic journalists to the temporarily occupied south of Ukraine.

Moscow promised leading Icelandic journalists to pay for their journey to Moscow via London and Istanbul, and then transport them to the captured parts of Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to cover the referendum. It is reported by The Reykjavik Grapevine.

Icelandic correspondent Konrad Magnusson told reporters that travel from Iceland to London, Istanbul, Moscow, and then to the regions of Ukraine where these extraordinary referendums are scheduled: Lugansk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye and Kherson, will be paid for by a fund managed by the Russian state.

No one accepted this offer, so as not to have links with the justification of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In fact, only one of the journalists gave an answer to the Russians - and he turned down the offer, wrote The Reykjavik Grapevine.
