Information on the war in Ukraine.
DCPD-202200828 - Statement on Russia's Annexation Referendums in Ukraine - September 23, 2022: The United States will never recognize Ukrainian territory as anything other than part of Ukraine. Russia's referenda are a sham, a false pretext to try to annex parts of Ukraine by force in flagrant violation of international law, including the United Nations Charter.
DCPD-202200829 - Joint Statement by Group of Seven (G-7) Nations Leaders on Russia's Annexation Referendums - September 23, 2022 : We, the Leaders of the Group of Seven (G7), strongly condemn the sham referenda that Russia attempts to use to create a phony pretext for changing the status of Ukrainian sovereign territory, which is subject to an ongoing Russian aggression.
