That’s according to Head of the Office of the Ukrainian President’s Office, Andriy Yermak, Ukrinform reports referring to his Telegram channel.
"Any sham referendums in the CADLO (temporarily occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions - ed.) on acceding to Russia will not be recognized by Ukraine and the world. And attempts by Russians to raise stakes in this manner and undermine Ukrainian sovereignty will not succeed anyway," Yermak said.
The head of the President's Office has stressed that the issue of territorial integrity and sovereignty is fundamental for Ukraine.
According to a number of media reports, Russia’s puppet authorities in the CADLO could be preparing grounds for holding a referendum on the accession to the Russian Federation of the territories currently occupied by Russian invaders.
