Previously, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said that the country does not recognize the annexation of four regions to Russia and supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday at a ceremony in the Kremlin signed the Treaties on the admission of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics and the formation of new entities within Russia. Referendums on the issue of joining Russia were held from September 23 to 27 in the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. According to the results of processing 100% of ballots in the DPR, 99.23% of those who voted for joining the Russian Federation, in the LPR – 98.42%, in the Kherson region – 87.05%, in the Zaporozhye region – 93.11%. The President of Russia said last week that Russia would support the decision to be made by the residents of Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. The public addressed the authorities of the regions with the initiative to immediately hold referendums. According to the representatives of the republics and regions, joining Russia will secure their territories and restore historical justice. In their opinion, this decision is extremely necessary in the context of constant acts of terror by the nationalist authorities of Ukraine and NATO members, who supply weapons to kill civilians. The referendums were held against the backdrop of sanctions pressure and statements from the West about the need for a negotiation process between Moscow and Kyiv. Many countries have declared that they do not recognize the results of the vote. Russia, in response to the UN Security Council, stated that by not recognizing the referendums, the West is showing double standards.
