Canada doesn't recognize Russia's 'sham' referenda - Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a statement released Wednesday said Ottawa will not recognize the results of the Moscow-organized referenda in four occupied regions of Ukraine.

"The so-called referendums held by Russia in the illegally occupied regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia, in Ukraine, have absolutely no legitimacy," the prime minister said, adding that Canada remains "steadfast in its commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence."

Trudeau's comments come after Russian officials released results that showed all four regions were in favor of integrating their territories into Russia.
