No: 300, 30 September 2022, Press Release Regarding Russia’s Annexation of Some Regions of Ukraine

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 30.09.2022

Türkiye did not recognize Russia’s annexation of Crimea in an illegitimate referendum in 2014 and has emphasized its strong support to Ukraine’s territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty on every occasion.

In accordance with this stance adopted in 2014, we reject Russia’s decision to annex the Donetsk, Luhansk, Herson and Zaphorizhia regions of Ukraine.

This decision, which constitutes a grave violation of the established principles of international law, cannot be accepted.

We reiterate our support to the resolution of this war, the severity of which keeps growing, based on a just peace that will be reached through negotiations.

Atatürk
