Mr Boitsov said that they would not stand up without Russia’s support. ‘I am cancelling the referendum <…> We can’t conduct it lawfully while these [censored] are here!’

Mr Barkashov said they should not cancel the referendum. ‘Don’t collect any papers! Just write 99% [votes in favour of Donetsk Republic] … or 89 %!’ he gave ‘useful’ instructions how to rig the referendum.
