Russia’s Putin signs laws linking 4 Ukraine regions, finalizes move

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed laws to integrate four regions of Ukraine into Russia. The move finalizes the merger of the regions into Russia in defiance of international law.

Both houses of the Russian Parliament have also ratified treaties for the annexation of Ukraine’s territories to Russia. The four regions include Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya.

The move by the Russian parliament and Vladimir Putin was followed by a Kremlin-backed “referendum” in areas that Ukraine and the West had dismissed as sham.

Earlier today, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said Kyiv’s military had made “large and rapid progress” against Moscow’s forces over the past week. Ukraine has taken back dozens of cities in the south and east that Russia has declared annexation.

“This week alone, since the Russian proxy referendum, dozens of population centers have been freed. These are simultaneously in the Kherson, Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk regions,” Zelensky said.

Russian forces in the Donetsk and Kherson regions have been forced to retreat and are increasingly struggling to fight western-equipped Ukrainian forces.

“In some areas of the front line it was possible to extend the area between 10 and 20 km,” the Southern Operational Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) said on Wednesday.
