Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees instructing Russia’s Armed Forces to maintain peace in the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR).
The documents, in particular, say that in connection with the appeals from the leaders of the Donbass republics, Denis Pushilin and Leonid Pasechnik, the implementation of peacekeeping missions in these states was now assigned to the Russian military.
Putin’s decrees came into force from the moment of signing.
The head of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Leonid Kalashnikov, stated that the DPR and LPR were recognised within the borders of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Currently, part of these territories remains under the control of the Ukrainian army.
Putin also instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia to start establishing diplomatic relations with the Donbass republics.
The Russian Foreign Ministry was instructed to negotiate the establishment of diplomatic relations with Donetsk and Luhansk.
The agreements on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance between Russia and the republics of the Donbass have been submitted to the State Duma for ratification.
The documents were sent to the Committee for International Affairs and the Committee for Affairs of the CIS, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots. They are scheduled to be reviewed on February 22.
