In the Kremlin, everything is ready for the signing of four agreements on the admission of new subjects to the Russian Federation.
Together with the Russian flag, those from the DNR, LNR, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions were placed in the hall of St. George.
The head of the Lower House of the Russian Parliament said today that the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, informed that House about plans for Russia to receive four regions of Ukraine.
State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, a key Putin aide, said on the Duma's official Telegram channel that Putin had informed parliament of the region's official demands, Reuters reports. Russia held so-called referendums in four partially occupied regions of Ukraine - Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia, and said that the overwhelming majority voted in favor of joining Russia, reports the agency.
Western governments and Kyiv said the vote was coerced by the occupation, was unrepresentative and violated international law.
The leaders of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia arrived in the Kremlin.
Buses full of Russians are also arriving in Moscow, in order to attend the ceremony of declaration of annexation. Више о овом изворном тексту За додатне информације о превођењу т
