KIEV, March 23. /TASS/. Verkhovna Rada Speaker Volodymyr Groysman has signed a decree on "recognizing separate areas, towns, settlements and villages of Donetsk and Luhansk Regions as temporarily occupied territories," the Ukrainian parliament’s official website said on Monday.
The Verkhovna Rada adopted the decree on March 17. It received 280 votes in favor.
