Erdogan, touching upon the issue of referendums in the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, also invited Putin to give the world another chance.

The Kremlin report on the telephone conversation between Putin and Erdogan, in turn, says that during the conversation, the Russian president stressed that “the vote took place in a transparent manner, in full compliance with the norms and principles of international law.” “The inhabitants of these regions have exercised their right to self-determination in accordance with the provisions of the UN Charter, the international covenants on human rights of 1966 and the Helsinki Final Act of 1975,” indicated in it.

The agreement provides for the operation of a humanitarian corridor for the export of Ukrainian grain, as well as the involvement of the UN in lifting restrictions on the export of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers to world markets.
Referendums were held from 23 to 27 September. The authorities of the DPR, LPR and the territories of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions controlled by Russian forces recognized the vote as valid. According to the data they provided, the voters supported the entry of the territories into Russia.
