Scholz: Germany does not recognise referendums on ‘LDPR’ & occupied territories of Kherson & Zaporizhzhia regions entering Russia

Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz has announced that the country would not recognise the referendums on the Luhansk and Donetsk “people’s republics” (“LDPR”) and the occupied territories of Ukraine’s Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions joining the Russian Federation, reports Der Spiegel, citing Scholz’s remarks upon arriving in New York to participate in the United Nations General Assembly.

“These fictitious referendums cannot be accepted, they are not covered by the international law and understanding reached by the world community,” he said (as quoted by Russia’s state news agency TASS).

Scholz added that Russia had to withdraw its troops from Ukraine. “Ukraine has the right to defend its integrity and sovereignty as well as its democracy, we support Ukraine [in these efforts],” he declared.
