Russia holds ‘referendums’ in occupied regions of Ukraine - BBC News

Russian-backed officials in four occupied regions of Ukraine are holding self-styled referendums on joining Russia.

Denounced as illegitimate and a sham by Ukraine and the West, these so-called votes are taking place over five days while all four areas – two in the east and two in the south – are on the front line.

An annexation could lead to a claim by Russia that its territory is coming under attack from Western weapons supplied to Ukraine.
