Putin Signs Decree To Recognise 2 Ukrainian Regions As Independent States

Putin on Friday signed decrees paving way for the annexation of two Ukraine regions, the Kremlin said.

Moscow:

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday signed decrees paving the way for the occupied Ukrainian regions of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia to be formally annexed into Russia.

The decrees, made public by the Kremlin, said Putin had recognised the two regions as independent territories. This is an intermediary step needed before Putin can go ahead with plans to announce on Friday that the regions are part of Russia.
