Russian Federation: The war between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for the last seven months. During the war, Russia claimed to have captured many areas of Ukraine. President Vladimir Putin also conducted a referendum to merge the occupied territories with Russia. At the same time, on Friday, 30 September, Putin will announce the results of the referendum. With this, they will sign the treaty of the annexation of the occupied territories.
The Russian President’s office has said in a statement that it is ready to defend those areas using all available means. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters the “treaties on the accession of territories to the Russian Federation” would be signed at 3 p.m. local time at St. George’s Hall in the Kremlin.
4 regions will be merged
The Kremlin, the office of President Vladimir Putin, said in a statement that on Friday, Russia would officially annex four regions of Ukraine. According to the report, by organizing a program for this on Friday, these areas will be declared as part of Russia. By law, Russia’s Federation Council must approve treaties before they can be signed by Putin, but it is unclear when the Federation Council is to meet.
What did Zelensky say on the referendum?
Earlier this week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky vowed to protect and liberate residents of Ukraine in the occupied territories. “This spectacle in the occupied territory cannot even be called a copy of the referendum,” Zelensky said in a video posted on Telegram on Tuesday. “We will work to protect our people.”
