Vote tallies from complete results on Tuesday in the four provinces ranged from 87% to 99.2% in favour of joining Russia, according to Russia-appointed officials. The head of the upper house of the Russian parliament said the chamber might consider annexation on Oct. 4.

"The results are clear. Welcome home, to Russia!," Dmitry Medvedev, a former president who serves as deputy chairman of Russia's Security Council and an ally of President Vladimir Putin, said on Telegram.

    Ironic, eh, for a Pennsylvania GOP, to see Dems complaining about a sham election.

    Russia's in turmoil. Thousands of antiwar protestors have been arrested. Ten-thousand people a day are fleeing to Georgia alone.

    Russia held mock referendums in four Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine "on whether to abandon Ukraine for a future with Russia".

    "They bang loudly, they ring the doorbell, they give people a ballot and point with their rifles where to put the mark, " Dmytro Orlov, the exiled mayor of the occupied city of Melitopol, said in an interview.

    Putin is expected to use the fake results in Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk and Luhansk as justification for annexing those regions.

    Then, in the days ahead, as Ukrainian forces continue their battle to reclaim the regions Russia annexed, Putin is expected to assert that Ukraine is attacking Russia.

    Now we have this:

    "On Tuesday, Dmitri Medvedev... reinterated on Telegram that Moscow had the right to defend itself with nuclear weapons, and said it was 'definitely not a bluff.'"
