The press secretary of the head of the Kremlin, Peskov, said that the "signing ceremony" on Russia's annexation of the captured territories of Ukraine will take place on September 30 in the Kremlin at 3:00 p.m., rosZMI reports.
Deputies of the Russian State Duma have been invited to the Kremlin at 3 p.m. on September 30 for an event with the participation of President Vladimir Putin, rosZMI wrote with reference to CPRF deputy Denys Parfyonov.
At the same time, the nature of the invitation will also be made public.
"The purpose of the event is not specified, but previously numerous sources reported that Putin may announce the annexation by Russia of the Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhya and Kherson regions of Ukraine," the Russian service of Radio Liberty reported, in particular, earlier.
Earlier it was also reported that on September 30 the streets on the outskirts of the Kremlin will be blocked, and a stage for the rally has already been set up on Red Square in Moscow.
RFE/RL notes that "on September 30, even if Putin announces the annexation, formally this process will not be completed yet." "It must be approved by the Constitutional Court, the Duma and the Council of the Federation. The meeting of the latter is scheduled for October 4," the publication writes.
Ukraine and the countries of the West, as well as a number of other countries of the world, declared their non-recognition of pseudo-referendums on joining Russia, which were held in 4 regions. The US and its allies have announced or are preparing to announce new sanctions against Russia in connection with the annexation attempt.
