They will not want to return under the control of Ukraine
Deputy Chairman of the military-civil administration of the Kherson region Kirill Stremousov at the end of April said that the return of the region under the control of Ukraine is excluded. The State Duma of the Russian Federation believes that this is an expression of the will of the people, akin to how the DPR and LPR rebelled against the coup in 2014. It is assumed that the regions where there were popular uprisings against the arbitrariness of the authorities at that time may want to unite into a new republic.

First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Alexei Chepa, in an interview with NEWS.ru, noted that over the past eight years, much has been done to localize the protests, and millions of people have left Ukraine. The deputy believes that today actions in the regions should be the will of the people.
Chepa noted that he did not know how events would develop in Odessa, Nikolaev or Zaporozhye. He explained that in these regions, people after some time will understand that “the special operation is not against them”, but in reality – for them, for peace and freedom. According to the deputy, when people find out that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has “already earned a billion” during the special operation, their attitude to current events will change.
The politician expressed confidence that from six to eight Ukrainian regions ” can easily unite” into a kind of republic. According to Chepa, it could be called Little Russia or something else. In conclusion, the deputy added that this republic within Ukraine would seek a certain autonomy and that “all this is possible.”
