Russian Geographers Don’t Recognize the Annexation

The RF continues to issue maps that do not include occupied Ukrainian territories

It became known that the cartographers of the aggressor country could not paint with their country's flag the occupied territories of Ukraine on which battles are being conducted. Experts also do not observe the territory of Ukraine if it is not the whole region. So, in online stores, you can see that Makiivka, Donetsk region, occupied 8 years ago, does not appear to be the territory of the RF. Mariupol, captured almost 5 months ago, also did not acquire the flag of the aggressor. Luhansk, captured in 2014, is also considered Ukraine according to the geographical maps of the RF.

While cartographers and geographers cannot determine "whether to add new territories", Ukrainian defenders take back their cities. For example, Lyman and some objects of the Kherson and Luhansk regions.

Also, experts did not recognize the annexation of territories, which Putin announced on September 30. Half a month after the announcement of the results of the pseudo-referendums and the signing of the relevant laws, new maps were issued to the markets of the aggressor country. The maps received for sale show that no new republics and cities of federal significance have appeared in Russia.

Only traders from the markets responded promptly to the accession of new territories to the "great state". Only a few days after the "referendums", they began to sell T-shirts which occupied Ukraine has the colour of a bloody tricolour.
