Four provinces of Ukraine are included in Russia

The four Ukrainian provinces of Kherson, Zaporizhia, Donetsk, and Luhansk, which were under the control of the invading Russian forces and Russian-speaking separatists, finally became part of Russia officially. The leaders of these four provinces signed documents related to joining Russia in a festive atmosphere at the historic Red Square in Moscow on Friday. President of the country Vladimir Putin was present at this time.
“The people of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia have made their decision,” Putin said on stage in Red Square after the signing. From today they are all citizens of Russia. We extend our warmest congratulations to all of them on behalf of the Russian Federation.’ “I am sure the Russian legislature will also support these four provinces and welcome the people living in these provinces. The wishes and dreams of millions of people in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia are related to this accession and the Russian legislative Duma (lower house) and Federation Council (upper house) fully respect the sentiments of the majority of the people.’ Russian forces began military operations in Ukraine on February 26 this year due to the conflict caused by Ukraine’s accession to NATO, a military alliance of the United States and its allies. Putin himself ordered the operation. According to the information of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, about 6 thousand Russian soldiers have been killed in the operation of the last 8 months. Before delivering the speech on Friday, Putin and the leaders of four Ukrainian provinces observed a minute’s silence in memory of the Russian soldiers killed in the operation.
At the beginning of the speech, the President of Russia paid respect to the Russian soldiers and their family members who are operating in Ukraine.
