If the territories and regions of Ukraine intend to achieve recognition of independence by the Russian Federation, they must first decide to secede from Ukraine and declare their independence. This was announced on Sunday, May 15, by Georgy Muradov, Permanent Representative of Crimea to the President of Russia, Deputy Prime Minister of the Crimean Government.

The politician referred to specialists in state law and the provisions of Russian legislation, reports RIA Novosti. As Muradov noted, recognition by the Russian Federation would open the way for the liberated regions of Ukraine to join Russia. It was this path of reunification with Russia that Crimea went through in 2014, the permanent representative recalled.

Muradov allowed “other political decisions, including those of a temporary nature,” which would open up the possibility of allied relations with Russia to the liberated regions of Ukraine. However, he called the holding of referendums in these territories before the complete cessation of the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine premature.

The politician stressed that everything depends on the will of the people, and for Russia, the inhabitants of the liberated regions of Ukraine are part of our people and our compatriots.

Muradov previously stated that southern territories of Ukraine will become part of Russia at the behest of the locals. He noted that the Russian-speaking population lives in these regions, which has a common cultural code with the Russians. According to him, the southeastern territories were once donated to Ukraine, as well as the lands of historical Taurida, although this region has always been Russian.
