Boris Johnson accused Vladimir Putin of “clearly” violating international law after the Russian president announced the recognition of two breakaway republics.

The Russian president has decided to officially return to Luhansk and Donetsk, where Moscow-backed separatists have rebelled against Kyiv rule.

In a rambling 56-minute televised address, Putin asserted Ukraine was “an integral part of our own history” and leveled off a series of claims against NATO and the West.

Earlier, the Kremlin announced that it would soon sign a decree recognizing the rebel regions as independent.

Speaking at a press conference in Downing Street, the Prime Minister said the move to be “bad omen” and “dark omens”.

“This is a clear violation of international law, it’s a blatant violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and integrity,” he told reporters.

“It is a rejection of the Minsk process and the Minsk Agreements.

“I think it’s a bad omen and a very dark omen.”

It’s “another sign that things are going wrong in Ukraine,” he added.
