 Putin called the Russian Federation

He believes that the future of the occupied Donbass should be determined by the people living there.

Russian President Vladimir Putin considers the Russian Federation to be a mediator in the “conflict” in Donbass.

He expressed this opinion at his annual press conference on December 23.

“We see our role in being mediators in creating the best conditions for determining the future of people living in this territory (the part of Donbass occupied by the Russian Federation – Ed.). Are there any problems? Yes. According to the Minsk agreements, Russia is a mediator, and we They want to make them a party to the conflict. There is no such thing in the Minsk agreements. We did not agree to this, “the head of the Kremlin said.

Putin believes that the future of the occupied Donbass should be determined by the people living there, and Ukraine should be enshrined in its Constitution the special autonomous status of these territories.

It should be noted that Putin makes such statements, despite information in the media that mercenaries with combat experience are actively recruiting in Russia and the occupied territory of Donbass. For example, Meduza, citing its own sources, writes that Moscow recruiters tried to hire 120 “Russians with combat experience” who are ready to go to Donetsk for three months. They were promised to be paid 160 thousand rubles (more than 2 thousand dollars) a month at the location of the “unit”, and 320 thousand rubles (more than 4 thousand dollars) “at the front.”

Recall that during a press conference, Putin called the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine “a bloody coup.”
