Vladimir Putin declared Ukraine's opposition territories as independent.

Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, recognized two breakaway regions, Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine as an independent. This increases the risk in the ongoing crisis, which the West fears to possess the potentiality of a major war. Putin put up Ukraine as an integral part of Russia’s history in a televised address to the public. He claimed that Ukraine was once part of Russia. He also stated that he was confident in the Russian people's support for his decision.


Putin informed the leaders of Germany and France about this through phone calls. The leaders of Germany and France expressed disappointment over this. Putin was later seen on Television signing the decree. Putin’s televised address included a history that dated far to the Ottoman Empire and recent tensions over NATO’s eastward expansion. This expansion is a key irritant for Moscow and Moscow’s move could lead to a last-minute bid for a summit with U.S President Joe Biden.


Putin mentioned that he deems it necessary to make this decision. According to him, the decision to recognize the independence and sovereignty of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Luhansk People's Republic should have been made long ago. He also warned that Ukraine joining NATO would pose a direct threat to Russia's security.


Putin has worked tirelessly for years to rebuild Russia's influence over nations that arose after the Soviet Union fell apart. Ukraine is one of the nations that holds utmost importance in this ambition.


Russia has denied a possible attack on its neighbor. Even so, if Russia doesn’t receive sweeping security guarantees which includes a promise by Ukraine that it would never join NATO, the nation threatened unspecified “military-technical’’ action. This acknowledgment of rebel-held territory opens the door for Moscow to argue that it is intervening as an ally to protect them against Ukraine. They could also send military forces openly to the separatist regions-Donetsk and Luhansk.


A former Russian parliament member Alexander Borodai asserted that the two separatist regions would then look to Russia to help them grab control of the parts of the two regions that are presently under the influence of Ukrainian forces. Alexander Borodai is a former political leader from Donetsk.
