German Chancellor Olaf Scholz told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a telephone conversation on Wednesday that Germany will never recognize the results of bogus referendums on joining Russia in the occupied regions of Ukraine, Reuters reported, citing the German government press service.

Scholz also noted that Germany's financial, political and humanitarian support for Ukraine will not change and it will continue to support Ukraine in defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity, including arms supplies, the press service said in a statement.

Earlier, after counting 100 percent of the votes at polling stations in Russia, 97.81 percent voted for Zaporizhzhya Oblast to become part of Russia, according to published totals for Russia.

The referendum on becoming part of Russia started on September 23 in Donetsk and Luhansk, as well as in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions. Voting lasted five days, until 27 September.
