Referendums on joining Russia in the DPR, LPR and in the liberated territories comply with international norms and the UN Charter. Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko told journalists about this.
“I am sure that the referendums will be held in such a way that no one will have reason to question their legitimacy. The will is expressed in accordance with international standards, the UN Charter. Residents of the DPR, LPR, and other liberated territories have such a right, a legal right. And in in today’s situation, it is actually the right to life,” she said.
