MADRID, Oct. 5 (.) –

The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, has promulgated this Wednesday the accession treaties of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as the regions of Kherson and Zaporizhia, all of them partially occupied by Russian forces, despite international denunciations on the illegality of these acts.

Earlier in the day, the president signed the four decrees with the ratification of the admission treaties of these regions, located in eastern Ukraine, one day after the Russian Federation Council, the Upper House of Parliament, gave his approval, according to the Russian news agency TASS.

The ratified treaties set the borders of these regions and contemplate that the regions in question become republics –in the case of Donetsk and Lugansk– and regions –in the case of Kherson and Zaporizhia–, all of them with chiefs of government that will receive the status of governor.

For its part, both Ukraine and the international community have rejected Putin’s announcement and have insisted that both the annexation and the referendums held days before in these occupied areas lack legitimacy under International Law.

In fact, the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelenski, declared on Tuesday “null and void” the treaties signed on Friday by Putin to absorb the aforementioned regions into Russia. Thus, he underlined in a decree Ukraine’s “sovereign right” over the four regions claimed by Russia.
