The Russian government’s decision to hold sham referendums in Ukraine has seen Apple pull a number of major apps in response to new sanctions.

Popular Russian apps removed from the App Store worldwide include Mail.ru and Facebook competitor VK. The latter is one of the apps the Russian government previously required Apple to show to iPhone users in the country during the initial setup process …

The latest attempt by Russia to justify its invasion of Ukraine is a series of claimed referendums in four occupied regions of the country: Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia.

The sham referendums involved soldiers going door-to-door to collect votes, as well as transparent ballot boxes in which votes appear to be visible. Additional voting took place in Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula by supposed ‘refugees’ from the four regions. Crimea was annexed by Russia back in 2014, and a sham referendum was also used there in an attempt to justify the occupation.
