We do not know whether Russia recognized the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk or if it only recognized the parts occupied by the separatists. “It is not clear” before Vladimir Putin announced the recognition of the separatists’ sovereignty over all of Lugansk and Donetsk regions, he added.

“Russia promised to withdraw its forces and instead concentrate more forces in a combat formation ready to attack,” he said. “Other forces are present in the Donbass, in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and this exacerbates the situation,” he added. He stressed that “to this should be added the threatening speech of Vladimir Putin.”
