Separatist Ukrainian territories recognized by Russia as independent; cut off financially by Biden
MSN: The usurper Biden plans to sign an executive order blocking new U.S. investment, trade and financing from flowing into two Russian separatist-held regions in eastern Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing the areas as independent.
'The executive order, detailed by the White House shortly after Putin delivered a lengthy address on his decision, will also give Biden the power to "impose sanctions on any person determined to operate in" the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.
'The two republics declared their autonomy from Kiev's control in 2014, following the events of the Maidan, when violent street protests toppled the democratically elected government in Ukraine. However, until now, neither Russia nor any other UN member nation has recognized them as sovereign nations, and Moscow has backed the Minsk agreements designed to bring a diplomatic solution to the conflict and reconcile the Donbass with Kiev.'
