With much of Donetsk and Zaporozhye still under Ukrainian control, it is difficult to know exactly how these referendums will play out

Four Moscow-controlled regions of Ukraine have announced plans to hold a so-called emergency referendum on whether to join Russia, which would pave the way for Russia to annex them.

Russia’s incursion has stalled in recent months, while Ukraine has retaken territory in the northeast.

Now, some Russian-backed officials in the southeast say they want to start a referendum this week on whether to join Russia.

Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 following a referendum that drew international condemnation.
