Russian parliament suggests occupied Ukrainian territories could be annexed in fall
Russia's parliament, the State Duma, may consider the legal groundwork for the annexation of occupied territories of Ukraine in fall
Chairman of the Committee of the Federation Council on Constitutional Legislation Andriy Klishas shared the statement on his Telegram channel.
"I fully assume that the most important task of this year's autumn session of the parliament will be the integration of new territories into the legal space of the Russian Federation," says Klishas.
It should be noted that during the war in Ukraine, the Russian army captured the Azov part of the Zaporizhia region and the entire Kherson region. In both regions, a ruble zone was created and governments were formed from Russian officials. There, they organized the broadcasting of Russian TV channels and radio stations, and provided solely Russian Internet and communications.
The first deputy Head of Russian Presidential Administration, Serhii Kyriyenko, deals with the technical issues of the annexation of Ukrainian regions. Earlier it became known that the Kremlin wants to create a new federal district, which should include the annexed regions.
