The referendum is scheduled for September 23-27 in the disputed areas.
Russia also annexed Crimea to Ukraine in 2014 as part of Putin’s grand plan.
This referendum will be made to be part of Russia
Moscow, World leaders expressed their anger at the announcement of a referendum on the inclusion of four Ukrainian territories occupied by Russia in Russia. World leaders called Russia’s move unilateral at a United Nations program in New York. According to a report by the Reuters news agency, in response to journalists’ questions at the United Nations on Tuesday, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that the Russians can do what they want, but nothing will change there. He added that Ukraine would liberate its territories from Russia at all costs.
Russia will have 15% of Ukraine
With the help of this referendum, Russia will include about 15% of Ukraine in its country. This region is as large as Hungary, which includes the Ukrainian provinces of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya. It is planned to hold the referendum in the disputed areas between 23 and 27 September. Let us tell you that as part of Putin’s grand plan to rebuild the Soviet Union, Russia also annexed Crimea to Ukraine in 2014.
World leaders have expressed concern
After Russia’s decision, world leaders expressed their concern for peace at the United Nations General Assembly. Mocking Russia, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Putin would soon give up his imperial ambitions when he learned he could not win the war in Ukraine. At the same time, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said the UN’s credibility was in jeopardy. At the same time, he also reiterated the point of reform, emphasizing the need for reforms within the UNSC.
Can India include POKs like Russia?
Unlike Russia, India’s image is that of a peace-loving country. While the Western world has imposed strict sanctions on Russia, India is still emphasizing on improving basic facilities in its country. India also has the option to attack Pakistan like Russia and bring back PoK, but unlike Ukraine, having nuclear weapons with Pakistan also complicates this process.
