Russian occupation regimes have begun to conduct sham referendums on the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. Due to low attendance at "polling stations", staff of the so-called "electoral commissions", accompanied by armed personnel of the Russian Armed Forces, are gathering people's signatures at their places of residence.
Meanwhile, military personnel of the Russian Armed Forces are continuing to engage in illegal activities with respect to civilians and are looting people's homes in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. For example, the Kadyrovites [a Chechen paramilitary group supporting the Russian Armed Forces - ed.] have captured an agricultural equipment depot in Melitopol and are now trying to sell off the items stored there.
Over the course of 23 September, the Ukrainian Armed Forces repelled Russian attacks in the vicinity of Spirne, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Odradivka, Kurdiumivka, Zaitseve, Maiorsk, Kamianka, Avdiivka and Opytne. Ukrainian aircraft carried out 25 airstrikes, striking 18 areas where Russian military personnel and equipment were concentrated and seven anti-aircraft defence systems.
Ukrainian air defence units destroyed one Russian helicopter, one fixed-wing aircraft and eight UAVs.
Ukraine's rocket and artillery units struck six Russian command posts; over 20 areas where Russian military personnel, weapons and equipment were concentrated; three anti-aircraft systems; and four ammunition storage points.
"[Russia's] total personnel and equipment losses are being confirmed," the General Staff reported.
