Russian state news agency TASS reported, citing an unnamed source in the Russian parliament, that Moscow may "annex" Ukraine's partially occupied Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts on Sept. 30, following sham referendums in these regions.
The illegal voting on joining Russia started in these four regions on Sept. 23 and will run through Sept. 27.
Russian media Verstka earlier reported that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin will address the Federal Assembly on Sept. 30. According to Verstka, Russia is considering imposing martial law “if Ukraine continues to attack" the occupied territories that Russia plans to illegally annex after holding pseudo-referendums.
