EXPLAINED: Together forever, the billboards proclaimed in the Red Square of Moscow. But even as Russian President Vladimir Putin signed “treaties” folding four Ukrainian territories into Russia on September 30, his soldiers were losing ground there – and Ukrainian flags were still flying. The strange theatre of Russia’s annexation of roughly 15% of Ukraine, some of which remains under Ukrainian control, has raised the stakes even higher in Putin’s grinding war. Western leaders have denounced the move as an illegal sham while the Kremlin buses in strikingly unenthusiastic Russian citizens to the Red Square to celebrate “the people’s choice”.
