Russia to hold presidential vote in occupied Ukraine


Presidential elections in Russia that are likely to see Vladimir Putin re-elected will be held in four Ukrainian regions that the Kremlin claimed to have annexed last year, Moscow said Monday.

The Central Elections Commission, according to Russian news agencies, said voting in March would go ahead in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson -- regions that Russia claimed to have annexed in 2022, despite not having full military control over them.
