Intercepted documents show pro-Russian officials allowing teenagers as young as 13 to vote in 'sham' referendums, Ukraine's security service says - Business Insider

Quick Summary:

Russian proxies "are trying to artificially increase the catastrophic lack of 'votes,'" in the occupied Donetsk region, Ukraine's SBU said.

The SBU said doing so will allow Russian proxies to build a more widespread voter base and "strengthen control" of the referendum's turnout.

Ukrainian and Western officials have widely slammed the referendums as illegal and said the outcomes of any votes will never be recognized.
