“As for the idea of a referendum, it was considered at the meeting in Helsinki, and we, the White house and State Department issued a statement at the time noting that we reject the idea of a referendum”

He also noted that the referendum “has no legal basis according to the Ukrainian Constitution and legal grounds in accordance with the Minsk agreements”.

“We were quite clear at that time that the referendum was a distant idea only on the part of the Ukrainian territory where the majority of the population was displaced due to the Russian intervention”
