After reducing so many 🇺🇦 towns & cities to rubble & forcing the population to flee or be deported across the border to 🇷🇺, 🇷🇺’s forces compelled– often at gunpoint – the remaining 🇺🇦 citizens in these depopulated areas to vote for annexation with 🇷🇺. ow.ly/XpmH50KYZJ3

Imagine someone trying to take your property and simply declaring it “theirs.”

Moscow’s atrocities and illegitimate attempts at changing Ukraine’s borders by force will never work. I reiterated our steadfast commitment to Ukraine to @DmytroKuleba and underscored our support to strengthen Ukraine militarily & diplomatically so they can defend their homeland.
