Zaporozhye, Kherson residents vote for joining Russia

The Zaporozhye region local election commission announced on Tuesday that 93.11% of referendum voters supported the accession of the region to Russia. All ballots have been processed, according to the commission.

Minutes later, the local election committee in Kherson revealed that all ballots in the referendum in the region have been counted and that 87.05% of voters backed joining the Russian Federation.

Besides Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics have been voting since late last week on whether they want the territories they live in to formally become part of Russia. Western alliances have consistently claimed they will not recognize the results of the vote as valid.
