Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday urged the world to sentence “pseudo-referendums” as Kremlin proxies started voting on annexation by Russia in Moscow-held areas of Ukraine.
“The world will react completely justly to pseudo-referendums — they are going to be unequivocally condemned,” Zelensky stated in his every day tackle to the nation.
4 provinces in Ukraine which might be totally or partially managed by Russia — Donetsk and Lugansk within the east in addition to Kherson and Zaporizhzhia within the south — are holding votes on whether or not to be annexed by Moscow.
The ballots have been dismissed as a “sham” by Kyiv and its Western allies.
