The White House threatens Russia with new sanctions if it annexes Ukrainian territories

The G7, in a joint statement issued with the White House, condemned these “fake referendums” in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhia, stressing that they violate the United Nations Charter and international law.

The United States is ready to impose additional economic costs on Russia, in cooperation with its allies, if Moscow moves to annex Ukrainian territory, the White House announced tonight.

Russia is planning “mock referendums”, as the West describes them, in parts of eastern Ukraine, which is seen as a step towards annexing those territories.

“We know (the results) will be falsified,” White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said.

The G7, in a joint statement issued with the White House, condemned these “fake referendums” in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhia, stressing that they violate the United Nations Charter and international law.

The seven most industrialized countries called on the international community to categorically reject the referendums, saying they were ready to impose further sanctions on Russia.
