Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

During a ceremony in the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed documents finalizing the incorporation of four Ukrainian regions into Russia. Putin emphasized that Russia would now defend the regions with “all available means.” The controversial move escalates the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine as Kyiv, the EU member states, and other Western countries are declaring that they do not recognize the “illegal referendums” and that they were “a pretext for this further violation of Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
