NATO has condemned plans to hold “referendums” in the Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine, describing them as “flagrant attempts by Moscow for territorial occupation”.
Earlier this week, four Russian-occupied Ukrainian regions announced they were planning to hold votes on joining the Russian Federation. Ukraine and the West have indicated that they will not recognize the annexations – and that Russia’s new territorial claims will not slow Ukraine down from reclaiming its sovereign land.
“Fake referendums in Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions of Ukraine have no legitimacy and will be a clear violation of the UN Charter. NATO allies will not recognize their illegal and illegal annexation. These lands are Ukrainian”, says the statement of the Alliance.
