Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made it clear that the aggressor country would hold fake "referendums" in the territories of Ukraine occupied by it. He told russian journalists about russia's plans in relation to Ukraine.
"The residents of these (russian-occupied - OstroV) regions should decide their future", - Lavrov said.
According to him, the "liberation" of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, "recognized by the russian Federation as independent states, is an absolute priority".
With regard to other territories of Ukraine, where russian troops have entered, "the residents of these regions should decide their future", - Lavrov stated.
"They must decide for themselves in what environment they will continue to exist: in the one created by President Zelensky (ban on Russian education, media, culture and use of the Russian language in everyday life) or in another, where they will be able to raise their children the way they want, but not Zelensky and his team", - Lavrov once again repeated the far-fetched accusations of Ukraine of "Nazism".
As previously reported, the world community does not recognize such "self-determination" carried out under occupation. The referendum must be held in accordance with the laws of one's country, in peacetime and provided there is an open space for different opinions.
