He’s not always complimentary about Russia in the past saying they were far too slow to come into Donbas and save the Russian people trapped inside Ukraine by the Maidan coup in 2014. Tens of thousands were killed. Russ fought in the Donetsk forces from 2014 – 2016, stopping the Ukrainian army on the edge of Donetsk where it has shelled civilians ever since on a daily basis.
I guess he’s happy now the whole of Donbas, Kherson and Zaporozhia have voted to join the Russian Federation with votes over 90%. Russia’s mobilising and it seems unlikely Ukraine will wipe out Novorossiya now. Happy Days Russ! At least once Ukriane and NATO stop killing the long suffering citizens of Donetsk.
🇷🇺The Kremlin has warned that, if the referendums on annexation to Russia initiated this Friday in the eastern regions of Ukraine succeed, they will be considered for all purposes territories of the Russian Federation and, therefore, the Constitution will be applied “immediately”.
Therefore, potential Ukrainian attempts to regain the Donbas would be considered attacks on Russia, which from Moscow’s point of view would legitimize any response.
The Kremlin spokesman, Dimitri Peskov, has defended that everything is “very clear” in the Constitution and, although he has avoided giving a deadline for the formal conclusion of the annexation of these territories, he has pointed out that it will be “fast”, according to the Interfax news agency.
