(The text after the 2nd paragraph has been added)

KYIV. Sept 27 (Interfax-Ukraine) – President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has held a phone conversation with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to discuss the situation on the battlefield and further support of NATO Member States for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"I had a call with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to thank him for decisively condemning Russia’s illegal ‘referenda’. We discussed current battlefield developments and further support of the Alliance’s member states to the Ukrainian Armed Forces," he said on Twitter on Tuesday.

NATO Secretary General, in turn, emphasized that Russia’s sham referenda have no legitimacy and that NATO Allies are unwavering in their support for Ukraine.

"Just spoke with President Zelensky and made clear that NATO Allies are unwavering in our support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and right to self-defense. The sham referenda held by Russia have no legitimacy and are a blatant violation of international law. These lands are Ukraine," he said on Twitter.
