It will be immediately sent for approval to the Federation Council and the State Duma will be informed of the decision. The Russian Parliament is known as the Duma. During a televised conversation with members of the Security Council, Putin also directed the establishment of a special coordination council under Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin to increase Russian aid to the Ukrainian occupied territories. This committee will oversee the assistance provided by Russia in Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhya and Kherson.
Russia is evacuating people from Kherson
Putin’s new commander in charge of the Russian military in Ukraine has started evacuating Ukrainian civilians from Kherson. These citizens will be resettled in another territory occupied by Russia itself. Sergei Surovikin, a former commander of the Russian Air Force, admitted that the situation in Kherson is very tense and the war is still going on in its surrounding areas. Russia claims that these civilians are being removed from near the front fronts in view of the security situation. These people are also being given huge financial aid from Russia, which includes job, food and water and security guarantees.
