Putin ratified treaties on the acceptance of new territories

Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the ratification of agreements on the admission of the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions into Russia. Now Mr. Putin must also sign the constitutional laws and amend the Constitution accordingly.

Previously, the laws were unanimously approved by the State Duma and the Federation Council. The Constitutional Court recognized the treaties with the new territories as constitutional.

According to the laws, residents of the new constituent entities of Russia become citizens of the Russian Federation upon filing an application and taking the oath of a citizen of the Russian Federation. They have been given a month to apply for renunciation of Russian citizenship. Until January 1, 2026, a transitional period will apply for these territories.

The DPR and LPR within Russia will retain the status of republics and their former names. Kherson and Zaporozhye regions will remain regions. The state language will be Russian, schools promise to keep the study of Ukrainian. The Kremlin said that the DPR and LPR would enter within the borders of 2014, and the borders of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions would be determined after Russia “consulted with the population.”

Details – in the material “Kommersant” “Decree on lands.”
