The United States is ready to impose additional sanctions on Russia, in cooperation with its allies, if Moscow moves forward with annexing Ukrainian territory, the White House said.

Russia is planning “mock referendums”, as the West describes them, in parts of eastern Ukraine, which is seen as a step towards annexing those territories.

G7: We will never recognize the Russian referendums in Ukraine

“We know (the results) will be falsified,” White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said.

The G7, in a joint statement issued with the White House, condemned these “fake referendums” in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhia, stressing that they violate the United Nations Charter and international law.

The seven most industrialized countries called on the international community to categorically reject the referendums, saying they were ready to impose further sanctions on Russia.
