(ANSA-AFP) - BRUSSELS, SEP 28 - The EU on Wednesday slammed "illegal" annexation votes Russia held in four occupied regions of Ukraine and their "falsified" results, the bloc's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said. "EU denounces holding of illegal 'referenda' and their falsified outcome," Borrell said on Twitter. "This is another violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, amidst systematic abuses of human rights," he said. European Council President Charles Michel tweeted: "Sham referenda. Sham results. We recognize neither." On Tuesday, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg called the votes organised by Moscow in the occupied Ukrainian regions as "a blatant violation of international law" which have "no legitimacy". (ANSA-AFP).
