Russia states that Ukraine’s new decree lacks a historic basis

Moscow, Jan 22 (Prensa Latina) The State Duma (Lower House of the Russian Parliament) on Monday described Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's decree on reclaiming territories as lacking historic basis.

“This text shows that the Ukrainian Government is detached from reality, from the times we live in. It has no historic arguments,” the Parliament stated on its official website.

Alleged territories of the Russian Federation are historically inhabited by Ukrainians and demand their return, including regions such as Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Kursk, and Rostov, the decree noted.

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, when speaking at the United Nations headquarters in New York, condemned the latest act of terrorism by the Ukrainian armed forces, which killed 27 people and wounded 27 others during an attack on a civilian target in Donetsk.
