Norway condemns Russia’s planned referendums in Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine, Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt (AP) said on Tuesday.
“Illegal referendums will escalate the situation and be a serious breach of international law. We will not recognize a potential Russian annexation,” Huitfeldt noted.
The separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk, as well as occupied areas in Kherson and Zaporizhzhya, claimed on Tuesday that they would hold referendums on September 23-27 to become a part of Russia.
