The head of the energy company EWF, Stefan Schaller, came at the invitation of Russia.
In Germany, Stefan Schaller, head of the energy company EWF, was fired from his job, who, at the invitation of Russia, was an “observer” of pseudo-referendums in Ukraine.
This is reported “Polish Radio”.
This decision was made by the supervisory board of the company.
Schaller admitted that he left for Ukraine out of “private motives.” He stressed that he used his right to leave in order to get a “full picture” of the situation in the Zaporozhye region. He was supposed to tell the Russian media that the referendum was “excellently organized” and that the local population “exuded enthusiasm.”
According to the findings of the radio station Hessischer Rundfunk, Schaller also appeared in propaganda photographs that humiliate the dignity of Ukrainians and are intended to legitimize the aggressive policies of the Kremlin.
“The head of the EWF has entered the phase of insisting on arguments that cause irreparable image damage to us. His behavior is incompatible with the philosophy of the company, which provides energy to more than 90,000 households,” said Jürgen van der Horst, Chairman of the EWF Supervisory Board.
Pseudo-referenda in the occupied territories
As UNIAN reported earlier, on September 23-27, the occupiers are holding pseudo-referendums in the captured parts of Kherson, Zaporozhye, Donetsk and Luhansk regions in order to join the Russian Federation.
In response, the countries of the G7 and the European Union promised to impose sanctions against the aggressor country.
On September 24, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that at the so-called “referendum” there was a low turnout at the “polling stations.” Because of this, signatures are collected from local residents at home, accompanied by armed Russian occupiers.
The Ministry for the Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine called on law enforcement officers to investigate the legitimacy of the entry and activities of the so-called foreign observers at the “referendum” in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
