All civilized countries of the world understand that the pseudo-referendum, which the occupiers are trying to hold in the temporarily occupied territories, will not yield anything. 

Oleg Katkov, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced this as part of an information marathon.

"The Russian Federation can formally add Ukrainian territories to its composition as a pretext for using weapons of mass destruction.

But this is probably an attempt to buy time, to intimidate, to show a weapon.

Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

In my opinion, the annexation of territories will not change anything," Oleg Katkov emphasized.

We will remind you that the Russians are trying to occupy the entire territory of the Donetsk region and disrupt the offensive of the Armed Forces.
