Russian ambassador summoned as Britain imposes new sanctions on Moscow

    REGION  30 September 2022 - 19:59

    Russian Ambassador to the UK Andrey Kelin was summoned to the Foreign Office Friday over the accession of the four entities to the Russian Federation, the Foreign Office said on September 30.

    According to the Foreign Office, the envoy was summoned under the order of Foreign Secretary James Cleverly in order to present him with a decisive protest over what it called an "illegal annexation of sovereign Ukrainian territory."

    The Russian Embassy confirmed the fact of the summoning to TASS.

    "DPR", "LPR", as well as Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, held referendums on accession to Russia between September 23 and 27. On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and the heads of these entities signed the accession treaties.

    Earlier, the UK warned that it will not recognize the outcome of the referendums.
