This is the offer of the Russian President discussed with trump in Helsinki.

The US is not considering the idea of Russian President Vladimir Putin to hold a referendum in the Donbas.

About this informed the press-Secretary of the national security of the United States Garrett Marquis, reports Reuters.

The official noted that the possibility for a referendum is not envisaged by the Minsk agreements. Moreover, the referendum on the uncontrolled territory of Ukraine will be illegitimate, said the Marquis.

“The administration is not considering supporting a referendum in the East of Ukraine. The organization of the so-called referendum in part of Ukraine that is not under the control of the government will not have legitimacy,” he said.

The proposal is to hold a referendum in the occupied territories of Donbas under international auspices, during which local residents need to speak on the status of those territories. Trump allegedly asked Putin to discuss the idea during a press conference after the Helsinki meeting to give him time to think.
