The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs recognized the independence of the self-proclaimed “LPR” and “DPR”. Thus, Syria became the second state after Russia, which is a member of the United Nations to recognize the republics.

“By embodying the common will and desire to improve relations in all areas, the Syrian Arab Republic has decided to recognize the independence and sovereignty of the ‘Luhansk People’s Republic’ and ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’,” the ministry said.

The independence of the “LDNR” is also recognized by the partially recognized states of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, while Russia took this step on February 21 on the eve of the start of a full-scale war with Ukraine.

Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mikdad emphasized that the recognition of the independence of pseudo-republics by the Russian Federation is “a step towards the protection of peace, international law, the UN Charter and sound international relations.”

All other UN member states continue to recognize the territory controlled by the “DPR” and “LPR” as part of Ukraine.
