Putin introduces bills on accession of new Russian regions to Parliament

The lawmakers are expected to vote on the documents on Monday

President Vladimir Putin has sent treaties on the accession of four formerly Ukrainian regions into Russia for ratification by the State Duma. The residents of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, as well as Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics overwhelmingly voted in favor of joining Russia at referendums in September. 

Earlier on Sunday, the four treaties were approved by the Russian Constitutional Court. The documents now must be approved by the two chambers of the Russian parliament, the State Duma as well as the Federation Council. The lawmakers are expected to vote on the treaties on Monday.
