“People made their choices. It is a will of millions of people,” said Russian president Vladimir Putin at the event dedicated to the annexation of four regions of Ukraine to Russia, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.
“This is their inalienable right enshrined in the UN Charter,” stressed Putin.
Putin also added that Russia does not try to restore the Soviet Union.
“Soviet Union does not exist. It is not possible to return it. Russia does not need this at all.”
