Attempted annexation by Russia of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine
As UNIAN reported, on September 23-27, the occupiers held pseudo-referendums in the occupied parts of four oblasts of Ukraine. In Kherson and Zaporizhzhya – about leaving Ukraine and joining Russia, in Donetsk and Luhansk – about joining the Russian Federation. Russian troops forced people to vote at gunpoint.
Russian mass media reported that more than 90% of participants in the “referendum” voted “yes”.
On September 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of parts of four regions of Ukraine and offered Kyiv negotiations.
In turn, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that it is impossible to agree on coexistence with Putin, so Ukraine will conduct a dialogue with another president of the Russian Federation. The head of state is convinced that “only the path of strengthening Ukraine and expelling the occupiers from its entire territory will restore peace.”
On the same day, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine was held, the participants of which discussed ways of countering Russia’s attempts to annex Ukrainian territories. According to the results of the meeting, a decision was made to impose sanctions on important individuals and legal entities of Russia.
