EU to sanction facilitators of 'illegal' Russian referendums

The European Union will be sanctioning individuals who organized referendum votes in four Ukrainian regions, which are currently under Russian control, European Commission spokesperson Peter Stano stated on Tuesday at a press briefing.

"There will be consequences for all the people who took part in the organization of these illegal, illegitimate referendums and who supported them," Stano underlined.

Earlier, it was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin will likely be "formally" announcing the accession of the occupied regions of Ukraine later this week.
