UN's Guterres: Russia's annexations must not be accepted

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres slammed on Thursday Russia's plans to include four occupied regions of Ukraine into its territory.

"It is a dangerous escalation, it has no place in the modern world, it must not be accepted," Guterres warned, claiming any decision to "annex" parts of Ukraine will jeopardize prospects for peace.

Earlier, the Kremlin said Russian President Vladimir Putin will sign documents on the accession of the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR), the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), as well as Kherson Zaporizhzhia regions, on Friday after all four regions voted in referendums to join Russia. The West has branded the referendums "sham" and insisted it will not accept their results.
