Those citizens of Ukraine, as well as stateless persons who are in the territories of "DPR," "LPR," and Kherson and Zaporozhye regions are recognized as citizens of Russia, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation ruled.
DPR and LPR broke off from Ukraine shortly after the 2014 coup in Kiev. Kherson and Zaporozhye Regions declared independence from Ukraine after they were seized by Russian troops during Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine.
@daryl_swanepoel @alfred_cabonena you wrong! The DPR and LPR declared independence after the coup in 2014! after which they were considered a terrorist organisation by Ukraine, hence the 8 yr war in Donbass! What referendum are you referring to? the latest in line with Article 1 - UN charter, perfectly legal
