Putin’s address to the nation has been postponed to Wednesday morning, according to “Dozhdj” TV channel. Russian political scientist Sergei Markov, who is a former close adviser to Putin, also says that the president’s address scheduled for Tuesday evening has been postponed to Wednesday. He announced the news on his official “Telegram” profile, and the British media “Sky News” also refers to what was published there.

Sky News also cites a Telegram post by Margarita Simonyan, editor of the Russian propaganda channel RT, which simply said: “Go to sleep.”

“Delphi” already reported that the authorities in the Moscow-backed separatist and Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine on Tuesday urged holding “referendums” on official accession to Russia, reports the media “The Moscow Times”.

The so-called “People’s Republics” will hold “referendums” in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine between September 23 and 27.

Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine began in the early morning of February 24 with rocket fire, airstrikes and the arrival of ground forces. Russia initially cited the “denazification” of Ukraine as one of the goals of the invasion.

The occupiers in Ukraine have suffered heavy losses and are accused of deliberate killing of civilians, as well as other war crimes. The atrocities of the occupiers began to come to light en masse after the Ukrainians drove them out of areas around Kyiv, such as Bucha.

Russia’s treatment of Ukrainians, including killing and setting up infiltration camps, is described in this “fascist manifesto” published by the Kremlin’s propaganda news agency “RIA Novosti”.

In general, the war in Ukraine has been going on since 2014, when Russia occupied the Crimean peninsula and started a war in eastern Ukraine.
