Duma ratifies accession of 4 Ukrainian regions to Russia

Russia's State Duma unanimously ratified the accession of the four Ukrainian territories, the Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia, into the Federation on Monday.

On September 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the agreements for the four regions to join the country, and the Constitutional Court determined on October 2 that they complied with the Basic Law.

In accordance with the document, the boundaries of the four regions that border the territory of other nations constitute Russia's state border. The DPR and LPR governments are required to function until a new office of the acting heads is formed, while Kherson and Zaporizhzhia are required to act under Russian law.
