Finnish FM Pekka Haavisto said that Russia's new borders, approved after the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions became part of the country, will not be able to recognize many countries, Newsweek reported.

During meetings on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September, he said, his colleagues from many countries expressed concern about changing Russia's borders after false referendums. 

He noted that there are many places on the map whose borders can be disputed in one way or another. The upcoming changes could lead to a gigantic mess, says the head of the Finnish Foreign Ministry.

In his view, many countries cannot agree that changing borders through a referendum is the right thing to do.

Countries have to react to referendums or at least not recognize new borders. I don't think there will be many countries that will be able to recognize new borders based on the results of this kind of referendums, said the Finnish foreign minister.
