The international community should prepare for the fact that Russia may use pseudo-referendums in the occupied territories of Ukraine to declare an attack on “its territory” with NATO weapons.

“This is exactly what we have to be prepared for, that Russia will use these fake votes to further escalate the war in Ukraine,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a comment to CNN.

However, he stressed that voting on pseudo-referendums has no legitimacy and does not change anything.

“NATO’s response is to increase support. The best way to end this war is to further strengthen the Ukrainians on the battlefield so that they can at some point sit down and reach a solution that will be acceptable to Ukraine and preserve Ukraine as a sovereign independent state in Europe.” , – he added.

Stoltenberg also noted the support of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi in the statement that people should not participate in these “referendums”.
