The DPR, LPR and other territories controlled by Russia can be annexed without referendums, since the results of the vote in Crimea “few recognized anyway.” This was stated by the head of the Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, in an interview with RIA Novosti, according to the Telegram channel of the head of the region.
“In my opinion, in the current situation, it may be quite logical and justified to annex territories without referendums. There was an absolutely legal referendum in Crimea that complied with all legal norms, but still few people recognized it, — said the head of Crimea.
According to him, recognition by other states “does not depend on how these territories are annexed. “It's a matter of political will,” — considers the head of the republic.
At the same time, he stated that if referendums are to be held, then this should be done “the sooner the better”. Crimea is ready to provide assistance to new regions in terms of the transition period and adaptation to Russian legislation.
