The relevant statement was made by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on Twitter, commenting on his talk with Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Had a productive talk with Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte. Discussed the situation at the front & further defense support for Ukraine. Ukraine & the Netherlands are unanimous: the world should react decisively to sham referenda & increase sanctions pressure on RF. Coordinated support for Ukraine’s initiatives within the UN,” Zelensky wrote.
A reminder that, on September 20, 2022, the leaders of the so-called ‘L/DPR’ and collaborators within the Russian-seized areas of the Kherson region and the Zaporizhzhia region announced ‘referenda on joining Russia’ and scheduled them for September 23-27, 2022. Western leaders stressed any Russian sham referenda in Ukraine would be illegitimate.
