Reuters: U.S. rejects Russia idea for referendum in eastern Ukraine21 July 2018 | 15:56 | FOCUS News Agency
The proposal had emerged in the days following U.S. President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday.
“The administration is not considering supporting a referendum in the eastern Ukraine,” said Garrett Marquis, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council.
He added: “To organize a so-called referendum in a part of Ukraine which is not under government control would have no legitimacy.”
