Israel on Friday joined a broad chorus rejecting Russia's annexation of four occupied regions of Ukraine, reiterating its full support for Kiev's sovereignty, the Times of Israel reported.

In a statement issued shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed agreements for the new territories to become part of Russia, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said it did not recognize the move.

"Israel supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, we do not recognize Russia's annexation of these four regions. Israel has repeated this clear position many times, including in recent days," the ministry said in an official statement.

Earlier in the St. George's Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace there was a ceremony of signing treaties on the accession of the four new territories to the Russian Federation.

The EU, Japan and the US said they would not recognize the results of the referendums, and the US and the UK have already extended sanctions against Russia in connection with this.
