An Olive Branch from Moscow: Russia Explicitly Accepts Rebel Areas as Part of Ukraine

The Russian ambassador, Anatolii Antonov, interviewed on CBS has just emphasised that Russia recognises that rebel areas like Donetsk and Lugansk, which members of the Duma want recognised as Russian territory and whose citizens have a right to Russian passports, are in fact Ukrainian. At the same time he emphasised that ownership of Crimea is not up for discussion. He raised these issues to draw attention from the speculation about a Russian invasion of Ukraine, emphasising that Moscow wants to discuss the whole world order and put a stop to NATO expansion to the East.
