The Russian Parliament addresses this week the ratification of the annexation of the four occupied Ukrainian provinces

The Russian Duma or chamber of deputies will address on Monday the ratification of the international annexation treaties signed with the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia, as announced on Sunday by the president of the lower house of the Russian Parliament, Viacheslav Volodin . The next day, it will be the Council of the Federation (Senate) The one who gives his approval to the annexations so that the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, completes the process.

"On Monday we will address the introduction of amendments to constitutional laws and also the ratification of international treaties," Volodin explained to public television. Volodin has detailed that the deputies have "a great job" ahead of them to create a "unified legal framework" for the inhabitants of the annexed regions. In this regard, he recalled that the Duma had to adopt some 70 new laws in 2014 when Russia annexed the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.

He also alluded to the fact that Russia does not yet control all the annexed territory, be it in the Donetsk People's Republic or in Kherson and Zaporizhia. “Yes, in those regions fighting takes place. We must take that factor into account and do everything that depends on us to liberate the territory of the Russian Federation,” he said.

On Tuesday it will be the turn of the Federation Council, the Russian Senate, after which the president, Vladimir Putin, will promulgate the corresponding federal law.

The Russian Constitutional Court on Sunday approved the annexation treaties signed on Friday by Putin and the separatist leaders of the Ukrainian regions. “Recognize that the international treaty signed between Russia and [las cuatro provincias] it is in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation”, indicates each of the four legal provisions published by the court on its website.

Putin is following the same steps he took when Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula in 2014, which also held a referendum and joined the Russian Federation after an express incorporation process.

According to experts, the annexation of these territories partially occupied by the Russian Army will require the reform of the Russian Constitution, already amended two years ago in a controversial referendum so that Putin can remain in power until 2036. Then a clause was also introduced that prohibits the head of state from ceding to another country territories belonging to the Russian Federation. The annexation will force to amend article 65 of the Magna Carta, which includes 85 federal entities, which will now be 89.
