The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterreshe has refused this Thursday full Russian plans to annex four occupied Ukrainian territoriesand stressed that this move “must not be accepted” and represents a “dangerous escalation” of the conflict: “Any decision to proceed with the annexation of the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia has no legal value, and deserves to be convicted,” she told reporters.

Guterres has made it clear that the annexations violate the United Nations Charter and go against “everything the international community must defend”. “It is a dangerous escalation. It has no place in the modern world. It should not be accepted,” Guterres stressed, stressing that the UN is “completely committed to the sovereignty, unity, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine, in its international recognized boundaries”.

Guterres has emphasized that the accession referendums organized in the four territories were held during an active armed conflict, under Russian occupation and outside the legal and constitutional framework of Ukraine: “They cannot be considered a real expression of the will of the people,” Guterres stressed, warning that if Moscow continues with its accession plans, the prospects for peace will become even more complicated.

Guterres has said that as Secretary-General it is his duty to “defend the Charter of the United Nations”, recalling that Russia, as a permanent member of the Security Council, has a special responsibility to respect these principles.

The spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, Stéphane Dujarric, has pointed out that Guterres has forwarded his concerns directly to the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vasili Nebenzia.

The Kremlin has announced that Russian President Vladimir Putin will sign the annexation treaties this Friday from the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia, following the referendums held in these areas of eastern and southern Ukraine which are partially controlled by Russian forces.
