In the referendums held in four regions, 99.23 percent of the people in Donetsk People’s Republic, 98.42 percent in Lugansk People’s Republic, 8.05 percent in Kherson and 93.11 percent in Zaporizhia. voted in favor of joining Russia.

Highlights from Putin’s statements, speaking at the opening of the ceremony:
“4 regions are attached to Russia. This is a fundamental and historical right. Millions of people in Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhia and Kherson have made their decision. No one can take away our common future.
THE ANNEXATION OF THE 4 REGIONS WILL NOT BE NEGOTIED
Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaprozhya and Kherson are part of Russia, this issue will not be negotiated.
No one will prevent their lands from being attached to their homeland. They were the target of bombs and inhuman torture. But despite all attempts to hinder them, they showed their will.
Russian President Putin announced the annexation of Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhia and Kherson in eastern Ukraine.
CALL FOR NEGOTIATIONS TO KIEV
We call on the Kyiv regime to end the conflicts in these regions and return to the negotiating table.
We will defend our lands using every means at our disposal. We will rebuild hospitals, roads and buildings around here. We will use every means possible for the safety of people in the 4 regions.
RUSSIA IS STRONG
They thought that Russia would despair after the sanctions. But Russia was reborn.
The West tried to take this great country from us. However, we as Russia did not collapse. As always, we stand tall. We did not come under Western hegemony. So they were trying to keep our technology behind the global markets.
The cause of the war is our submission to the West. They do not want Russia to develop. I’m saying it once again. Their efforts to take over the world have been fruitless with the success of Russia.
The rules of the West are hypocrisy. Thousands of years of Russia will never bow to the will of another.
While such nationalism has never existed in Russia, we see that the West has a fascist attitude towards the Russian people. Let alone admitting their crimes in the past, they are trying to put it on others. They do not acknowledge how they destroyed indigenous peoples in the US and India. Making people addicted to drugs and hunting them like animals is the job of the West. Russia has always stood against colonialism.
KREMLIN: PUTIN HAS NO PLAN YET TO VISIT THE ANNEXED REGIONS
In a statement made by Tass news agency based on the Kremlin, it was noted that Russian President Putin has no plans to visit Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia yet.
“We absolutely do not accept that the annexed areas are part of Russia,” said Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission.
EU: WE DEFINITELY DON’T AGREE TO THE ANNEXATION
The leaders of the EU countries, in a joint statement, stated that Russia’s annexation of the regions in eastern Ukraine is illegal and they will never recognize the annexation.
In the statement made by the European Commission Ursula von Der Leyen, the following statements were included:
“We do not recognize and will never recognize the false and illegal results of the illegal referendums, which Russia made up as a pretext for further violations of Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity. We will never recognize this illegal annexation. These decisions are null and void and have no legal effect. “Crimea, Kherson, Zaporozhye, Donetsk and Luhansk belong to Ukraine. We call on all countries and international organizations to categorically reject this illegal annexation.”
