Russian President Vladimir Putin says he is considering the renegade eastern Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent after leaders of those regions urged it.

 

He emphasizes that he would not want to annex the regions and wants to decide this Monday.

Putin made the statements during a meeting of the Russian Security Council. All members of that council support the recognition of independence.

Donetsk has called on all non-disabled men to report to fight against the Ukrainian army for military service. Pro-Russian separatists have been fighting Ukraine since 2014.

According to Kyiv, this conflict has claimed the lives of about 15,000 people.
