Russian invaders are making preparations for the so-called elections on the territory of temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhya Region, particularly in Melitopol.

The mayor of Melitopol, Ivan Fedorov, said this on the air of a national telethon.

According to Fedorov, many factors testify to the preparations for the "elections".

First, all the Russian parties that we only know: United Russia, the LDPR, and so on have registered on the territory of Melitopol - their offices and representatives have appeared. Secondly, Gauleiter Balitskyi got a deputy for the organisation of elections from the temporarily occupied Crimea from Sevastopol, where he was 'deputy governor'," the mayor said.

He stressed that the occupiers had already set up a "central electoral commission of Zaporizhzhya Region", designating Melitopol as the so-called centre of the temporarily occupied part of the region.
