A billboard on Red Square bears the names of the four regions that Russia is going to formally annex the country on Friday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will formally merge four regions of Ukraine with his country during a signing ceremony on Friday. The decision was taken after the results of Russia’s first-of-its-kind referendum in these four regions.

Countries in the West, including Ukraine, are calling this referendum a ‘sham’ and calling it an excuse to grab Ukraine’s land.

Russian-backed officials earlier claimed that the five-day referendum had received massive public support.

The so-called polls on the referendum were held in Luhansk, Donetsk in the east and in Zaporizhzhya, Kherson in the south.
