The USA condemns pseudo-referendums and never recognizes the annexation of Ukrainian territories by Russia.
About this stated US President Joe Biden, reports Ukrinform.
He said the US would continue to work with allies on additional economic sanctions.
“Russian pseudo-referendums is a fiction, a false pretext for an attempt to annex parts of Ukraine by force, which is a flagrant violation of international law, in particular the UN Charter. We will work with our allies and partners to introduce additional swift and severe economic costs to Russia,” the statement said.
The US president promised that Washington would reject any results of the referendums and continue to provide security assistance to Ukraine.
We will remind: earlier in the White House it was announced that if Russia begins the annexation of the occupied Ukrainian territories, the USA and other countries are ready to introduce immediate sanctions that will lead to severe consequences for the Russian economy.
