Ukraine urges to boost pressure on Russia for sham “referenda,” supply more weapons to Ukraine (updated)

Ukraine urges to boost pressure on Russia for sham “referenda,” supply more weapons to Ukraine (updated)

In the wake of Russia’s pseudo-referendum shows in four partially occupied regions of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls to increase pressure on Russia, and military aid to Ukraine.

“On September 23-27, the Russian Federation organized a propaganda action called “referendums” in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk, and Donetsk oblasts of Ukraine.

“Ukraine calls on the EU, NATO, and the Group of Seven to immediately significantly increase the pressure on the aggressor state, including new tough sanctions against Russia, and significantly increase military support to Ukraine, including providing tanks, combat aircraft, armored vehicles, long-range artillery, and anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense equipment,” the MFA’s message on Telegram reads.


The full text of the Ukrainian Foreign Minister’s statement says,

“By organizing sham ‘referendums”‘in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, Russia wilfully demonstrates that all of its signals of alleged readiness for negotiations are only meant to provide a cover-up to its armed aggression and helpless attempts to hold on to the temporarily occupied territories.

“Russia consistently shows its contempt for all those who have been calling for diplomacy. We expect relevant countries to draw conclusions regarding Russia’s true intentions and increase their support for Ukraine in countering Russian aggression instead of abstaining from actions under the guise of their wish to play a role of peacekeepers that Russia does not need.”
