We reject Russia's decision to annex Ukraine's Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions.
According to APA's Istanbul correspondent, this is stated in the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey.
It was mentioned in the statement that Turkey did not recognize the annexation of Crimea by Russia with the illegal referendum held in 2014, and every time it emphasized its strong support for the territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty of Ukraine.
"We cannot accept this decision, which is a gross violation of established principles of international law.
We once again state that we support the solution of the war, which is becoming more and more serious, on the basis of a just peace that will be achieved through negotiations," the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey emphasized.
