🚨NEW: #Putin told Russian diplomats he made a proposal to Trump at Helsinki summit to hold a referendum to resolve (his!) war in eastern #Ukraine.

It’s nuts we keep learning major news from #Russia. As if the Kremlin’s in charge of and guiding US policy!…
Let's review some facts: Putin invaded eastern #Ukraine's Donbas region to punish Ukraine for ousting his puppet Yanukovych. 10000+ dead, 1.7 million Ukrainians left Donbas as a result of war & occupation. How Soviet—Putin wants a referendum after Donbas is cleansed of Ukrainians
Now that Russia drained Eastern Ukraine of 2 million Ukrainians and local resources, Putin proposes a “referendum” to Trump at Helsinki summit. Maybe Putin’s tired of funding the criminal fiefdoms his invasion established. I’ll never forget how they desecrated the ruins of MH17.
BREAKING: White House says Trump administration is NOT considering supporting Putin-backed call for referendum in eastern #Ukraine, @AP

It was an outrageous idea (see THREAD above)—self-serving, illegal and dangerous appeasement to Russia. It took WH 5 days to walk it back.
