In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Russia’s Referendums’. Russian election officials in Ukraine’s occupied territories have claimed overwhelming support for unification with Russia in a series of swift referendums. Meanwhile Kyiv and it’s Western allies have dismissed these referendums as a sham. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky told the United Nations General Assembly that Kyiv will not be able to negotiate with Russia after Moscow held annexation referendums in four occupied Ukrainian regions. Russian president Vladimir Putin is expected to address his country’s parliament about the referendums on Friday. The referendum votes, which took place over five days amid ongoing fighting is likely be used by the Kremlin to annex large areas of eastern Ukraine.
