Concert and big speech: This is how Putin celebrates the massive annexation


Preparations on Red Square are in full swing.

Huge concert, huge screens and, most notably, a speech by Kremlin President Vladimir Putin (69). The Russian elite, Friday, wants to celebrate the annexation of the occupied Ukrainian regions of Cherson, Donetsk, Luhansk and Zaporizhia. All four regions are said to be applying to join Russia, which Putin plans to formalize at a ceremony in the Kremlin on Friday.

The government spares no effort in that. Red Square was closed on Thursday to prevent obstruction of construction work. There are signs that read “Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhia, Kherson: Russia!” in the city.
