Sep (Reuters) - accompanied by Moscow's promise of security, in occupied parts of Ukraine, the referenders criticized as shams about an access to Russia have been promoted the third day in a row. Kyiv and Moscow accused each other attacks on civilians on Sunday.

Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens) again sharply convicted the so -called referenders in the Ukrainian areas occupied by Russia. With these "sham -speaking" weapons ", people from their apartments or from their workplaces were brought in" to "give voices in glass ballot boxes," said Baerbock in Berlin on Thursday. "This is the opposite of free and fair elections."

Baerbock accused Russia of wanting to enforce a "dictation peace". However, as long as there is this Russian dictation in the occupied areas of this Russian dictation, the citizens there are neither safe nor free, said the minister at an event on conflict prevention in her speech in English. She also justified the delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine. They help to "protect Ukraine's life of its citizens".

The conference was generally about civilian crisis prevention and peace promotion. In her speech, Baerbock also addressed the ever greater security policy dangers from climate change. This must therefore be fought more determined than before.

We found that experiences differ hugely, from a basic struggle for survival amid the ruins of Mariupol, to fleet-of-foot improvisations in places like Kherson - a city which found itself occupied with barely a shot being fired. But - whether the takeovers were bloodless or brutal - the same battle for identity is being waged.
