Citing international law, Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic has said that Belgrade will not recognize the results of Russia’s sham “vote” in occupied Ukrainian territories, Serbian news outlet N1 reported on Sept. 25.
“That would be completely contrary to our national and state interests, the preservation of sovereignty and territorial integrity and the inviolability of borders,” Selakovic said during a press conference.
Meanwhile, Russia’s ally Belarus remains ambivalent on how it will treat the outcome of the so-called “referendum.”
“We recognize Russia; nobody can foresee what exactly will happen tomorrow,” Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladmir Makei told French TV channel France 24.
“We’ll carefully examine the situation and make the decision, guided by our own national interests – not some else’s.”
Russia is staging a sham “vote” across occupied areas of Ukraine’s Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhya, and Kherson oblasts on Sept. 23-28, hoping to legitimize their subsequent annexation.
Russian media reported Russian dictator Vladimir Putin might address the Russian parliament on Sept. 30, formally including currently occupied Ukrainian territory into the Russian Federation.
