Ukraine’s Luhansk region may join Russia

On March 27, the leader of Luhansk, Leonid Pasechnik, suggested that a vote be held to determine whether or not the territory should join Russia.


 


Luhansk is part of the Donbas region, which proclaimed independence in a referendum in 2014 that neither the Ukrainian state nor the international community recognized.


 


“I expect that a referendum will be held soon on the territory of the republic, in which people will use their ultimate constitutional right and voice their opinion on joining the Russian Federation,” the alleged leader indicated.


 


Kyiv, for its part, retains that the situation of “independence” of Luhansk would be “illegal” and that, if carried out, Russia would face an "international response" with sanctions, because President Vladimir Putin recognized the independence of the self-proclaimed republics of Luhansk and Donetsk three days before the start of the war with Ukraine.
