Details: The ministry reminded that on 16 March, it was nine years since Russia held a fake "referendum on the status of Crimea". Meanwhile, 18 March marks the ninth anniversary of the attempted illegal annexation, when the so-called "agreements on the accession of Crimea to the Russian Federation" were signed.

"It is reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is wanted by international justice for war crimes, arrived in the temporarily occupied Crimea today," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

The authority emphasised that in September 2022, Russia repeated the trick with fake "referendums" in the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk, and Donetsk oblasts of Ukraine.

Quote: "Both in 2014 and 2022, the show with referendums has no consequences for Ukraine's administrative-territorial system and internationally recognized borders. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have already liberated most of the territories where these were held in 2022.

The liberation of all other temporarily occupied territories will also take place. It is just a matter of time."
