Moscow : Russian President Vladimir Putin has recognized the independence of Russia-backed separatist regions in eastern Ukraine amid ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine. With this decision of Russia, tensions will increase further amid fears of Western countries of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Putin made the announcement after a meeting of the President’s Security Council, paving the way for Russia to openly send force and weapons to a conflict between Moscow-backed rebels and Ukrainian forces.

Western countries fear that Russia may attack Ukraine at any time and may use skirmishes in eastern Ukraine as an excuse to attack. Earlier, Ukraine’s separatist leaders in a televised statement urged the Russian president to recognize the independence of the separatist regions and protect them from “ongoing Ukrainian military attacks against them” by signing friendship treaties. Send military aid to defend.

Russia’s lower house also made a similar appeal last week. Putin urged Russian lawmakers to sign treaties with Ukraine’s rebel regions, so that they can get Moscow’s military support. At the same time, the European Union called Russia’s move to recognize Ukraine’s separatist territories in violation of international law and said that it would impose sanctions on those involved. It reiterated its support for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Significantly, Russia on Sunday increased military exercises near the northern borders of Ukraine. It has deployed about 30,000 troops to Belarus, which borders Ukraine’s northern border. It has also deployed 150,000 troops, warplanes and other equipment on the borders of Ukraine. Kiev has a population of around 30 million.
