In his speech to the UN, the Russian foreign minister called the Luhansk region Laos.
On Saturday 24 September, in a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, speaking of a pseudo-referendum in the occupied territories of Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called Laos the first of the regions during the account of the Ukrainian regions.
The minister’s reservation was broadcast live.
“Now the West has made a fuss because of the referendums that are taking place in Laos … and … in the … Lugansk region,” Lavrov read from a piece of paper, locking himself.
Obviously, having lost his bearings in space, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, on the list of regions where the invaders hold their plebiscites, except for the Donetsk region, also called Kharkiv (of course, instead of Kherson ) and with great difficulty pronounces the name of the Zaporozhye region, which for the first time turned into Zaporozhnaya.
Lavrov cynically called the pseudo-referendums taking place in the occupied regions of Ukraine a reaction to Zelensky’s call to the Russians to “get out of Ukraine”, as if forgetting the presence of Russian soldiers, under whose guns these plebiscites illegal are to be held.
Representatives of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, a member of the UN since 1955, have not yet reacted to this passage by the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Recall that the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov said that Russia covers his aggressive intentions in Ukraine with “referendum” talk, but any “document” from the occupying authorities will have legal status only in a court where Russian war criminals will be tried.
