Attempted annexation by Russia of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine
As UNIAN reported earlier, on September 23-27, the invaders held pseudo-referendums in the occupied parts of four regions of Ukraine. In Kherson and Zaporozhye – about secession from Ukraine and joining Russia, in Donetsk and Lugansk – about joining the Russian Federation. The Russian military forced people to vote at gunpoint.
Russian media reported that more than 90% of the “referendum” participants voted in favor.
On September 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of parts of four regions of Ukraine and invited Kyiv to negotiate.
In turn, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that it was impossible to agree on coexistence with Putin, so Ukraine would conduct a dialogue with another Russian president. The head of state is convinced that “only the path of strengthening Ukraine and expelling the occupiers from all its territory will bring back peace.”
On the same day, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine was held, the participants of which considered ways to counter Russia’s attempts to annex Ukrainian territories. As a result of the meeting, it was decided to impose sanctions on important individuals and legal entities in Russia.
