Russian President Vladimir Putin will recognize the independence of eastern Ukraine’s separatist republics, the Kremlin said in a statement on Monday, after he had informed French and German leaders of his decision.

“At the same time, he indicated his readiness to continue contact,” the Kremlin said.

The Kremlin said the rebels had appealed “in connection with the military offensive by the Ukrainian authorities and the massive shelling in the area of ​​the Donbass, causing suffering to the civilian population.”

Also on Monday, the Russian leader held an unscheduled Kremlin national security meeting on Monday, in which his top officials gave passionate speeches in favor of recognizing the separatists.
