The U . s . States won’t ever recognize Ukrainian territory as anything apart from a part of Ukraine. Russia’s referenda really are a sham – an incorrect pretext to try and annex areas of Ukraine by pressure in flagrant breach of worldwide law, such as the Un Charter. We’ll use our allies and partners to impose additional quick and severe economic costs on Russia. The U . s . States stands with this partners all over the world – with every nation that respects the main tenets from the United nations charter – in rejecting whatever fabricated outcomes Russia will announce. We continuously offer the Ukrainian people and give them security assistance to assist them to defend themselves because they courageously resist Russia’s invasion.
