The Federation Council may consider joining the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, as well as Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, to Russia on October 4, with a positive outcome of the referenda. This was announced by the speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko.
According to her, the will of the inhabitants of Donbass and the liberated territories is treated with great respect, and if they themselves want it, then their desire to join Russia will certainly be supported.
“So far, I do not see the need for any unscheduled meetings. I believe that on October 4 we are ready to consider [вопрос о вхождении регионов в состав РФ]“, — said Matvienko during a working trip to Taganrog.
