|Ukraine: Russian Lawmakers Praise Putin After Rebel Recognition by George: 8:12 am On February 23, 2022|
Russian lawmakers lined up Tuesday to lavish President Vladimir Putin with praise for recognising east Ukraine’s rebel territories, in a show of loyalty as they unanimously voted to ratify the Kremlin’s deals with the separatists.
Lawmakers took to the tribunes to defend Putin’s move in ultra-patriotic speeches and broke into applause as they approved the agreements, which give legal cover for Russian troops to be sent in to Ukraine.
Not a single lawmaker in the lower or upper houses of parliament — the Duma and the Federation Council — voted against the deals with the Donetsk and Lugansk separatists.
In scenes reminiscent of Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea, the lawmakers presented Putin’s move as a major victory and backed dubious historical theories made in his national address the night before.
“Let’s thank the president for his bravery, for his responsible position,” Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said as he opened the voting session.
