Putin signs the annexation of the occupied regions

The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, will sign the treaties on the annexation of the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia to Russia on Friday, the Kremlin announced on Thursday, international news agencies report.

“The signing ceremony will take place tomorrow (Friday – no)”, said the spokesman of the Russian presidency, Dmitry Peskov, in his daily telephone press conference. Peskov added that the ceremony will take place in the Saint George Hall in the Grand Kremlin Palace at 15:00 local time (12:00 GMT), according to EFE.

Agreements will be signed “with all four territories that organized referendums and made corresponding requests to the Russian side,” Peskov said.

Peskov also announced that Putin will give an “extensive speech” on Friday after the ceremony of signing the annexation treaties and will meet with the administrators of the Ukrainian regions appointed by Moscow, according to AFP.

The leaders of the four separatist regions controlled by Russia in Ukraine traveled to Moscow on Wednesday evening for this ceremony, after the illegal referendums organized by Russia in Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye, considered true “simulacra” by Kyiv and the West.

Putin’s decision to incorporate the four regions of Ukraine into Russian territory means that Moscow will annex large areas in the east and south of the neighboring country, representing about 15% of the entire Ukrainian territory, notes Reuters.
