The country's president, Vladimir Putin, announced that the four regions of Ukraine, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya, would be under Russian control. On Sunday, the Russian Constitutional Court upheld Putin's decision.

This time, the Duma, the lower house of the Russian legislature, has followed the same path. Russian lawmakers have also unequivocally supported Putin's decision.
No lawmaker has taken a stand against Putin's decision. None of them even refrained from voting.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in a speech to parliament, called on Russian lawmakers to come forward to protect the Russian language, culture and borders.

Lavrov said, "We do not have this system against any imaginary threat. We have taken this decision to ensure the security of our borders, motherland and people.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Minister also claimed that the United States has made all Western countries stand against Moscow.
