President of the aggressor country Putin has approved the ratification of the illegal treaty on the admission of the occupied Donbas, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts into the russian federation. This is reported by the russian media.
As previously reported, russia made a number of illegal decisions and announced the "joining" (annexation) of the occupied regions of the Donbas, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts.
International law does not recognize "referenda" held in the occupied territories. The legislation of Ukraine, in turn, does not provide for holding local referendums on the issues of changing the borders of the state and violating its territorial integrity.
