Irina Vereshchuk, People’s Deputy of the Servant of the People’s Party, commented on the participation of ORLDO residents, holders of Russian passports, in voting for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation. According to the representative of the presidential party, the Russian Federation could take this step because Vladimir Putin is not sure of the results of the pan-Russian referendum. Vereshchuk believes that Putin wants to “cover himself”.

As you know, the occupying country has decided to vote on amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, residents of Ordlo who have received Russian passports. According to Irina Vereshchuk, deputy of the presidential party, Servant of the People, such a Kremlin decision could indicate that the Russian leader is not sure that the Russians will support the amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
“In fact, this indicates the weakness of Putin’s position. Probably, he thinks that everything is not as simple with voices,” said the deputy.
The MP said that the international community may not recognize the participation of residents of the so-called “L / DPR” in this vote. In addition, the politician noted that the Ukrainians themselves may also have serious problems, which will nevertheless express the desire to participate in the referendum. Vereshchuk considers that after the vote, the countries of the European Union may decide to bring the residents of ORLDO, who voted for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, to the list of foreigners whose stay is not desirable on the territory of the European Union.
According to the MP, Putin is taking a risk in this situation.
As you know, the vote on the amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation will take place in Russia on July 1. Earlier in the media there were reports that the Kremlin wanted to lure residents of annexed Crimea and residents of Ordlo, who have Russian passports, to vote.
Recall that before, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, they had reacted to the intentions of the Kremlin to have the inhabitants of Crimea and Ordlo vote for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
