KYIV: Kyiv said Tuesday that annexation votes organised by Kremlin-backed officials in four Russian-held territories of Ukraine would not have any impact on its military goals, seven months into Moscow's invasion.

"The main thing is that these actions, this decision by (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, will not have any influence on the politics, diplomacy and actions of Ukraine on the battlefield," Ukrainian foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba said during a press conference with his French counterpart Catherine Colonna.
