After the referendum results, Russia set to take over four Ukraine regions



Russia is planning to annex four regions of Ukraine after the referendum results

Following the release of the contentious referendum results, Russia is getting ready to seize four areas of Ukraine.

Countries have strongly condemned the poll to decide whether the regions wish to join Russia.

Officials in Zaporizhzhia said that 93.11 percent of voters there supported joining Russia.

Over 87.05 percent of voters in Kherson, according to the authorities, expressed their support by casting ballots.

More than 98.42 percent of the votes in Lugansk, according to the officials, were cast in favor of incorporation.

In Donetsk, the authorities said the victory was near total with 99.23 percent in favour of annexation.

President Vladimir Putin has given an indication the Kremlin was prepared to assume full control of the regions.


“Saving people in the territories where this referendum is taking place…is the focus of the attention of our entire society and of the entire country”, he asserted.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey is to discuss the development with Putin after Ukraine sought his intervention.

Erdogan disclosed that President Volodymyr Zelensky demanded Turkey’s support for the affected regions and to “convince Putin.”

“I wish they wouldn’t hold referendums and that we could instead solve the problem diplomatically”, he said.

Turkey, a member of the NATO defence alliance, has good relations with the two countries at war since the late February invasion
