Donetsk, Oct 3 — DAN. The integration of the DPR into Russia will unfold through a transitional period of three-plus years, according to the Ruling of the Constitutional Court of Russia, which approves the international agreement on the DPR accession to Russia.

Article 6 of the international treaty establishes a transitional period for the DPR integration into Russia’s economic, financial, credit and legal systems, as well as to resolve issues of military duty and military service. The transitional period ends on January 1, 2026.

“The transitional period in itself is a necessary consequence of the admission to the Russian Federation of a new subject — the Donetsk People’s Republic. Its specific content in the treaty under consideration is not determined, with some exceptions, which are subject to constitutional and legal assessment in relation to its other articles, and should receive legal development in the federal constitutional law on the admission of the Donetsk People’s Republic to the Russian Federation and in sectoral legislation clarifying and concretizing its provisions,” the Ruling says.

The treaties to endorse the accession of the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions to Russia were signed on September 30 in the Kremlin following referendums in all the four regions that revealed massive support of the accession among residents. *ot
