Fireworks and car horns.. Scenes of celebrations in Donetsk

Photographers and video cameras monitored the firing of fireworks in Donetsk and Lugansk, which together make up the Donbass region, shortly after Putin’s decision was announced.

In the Donetsk region, a number of residents, waving Russian flags, went out on Monday evening, and fired a barrage of fireworks, which turned the night of the region into day.

In the daytime, convoys of cars roamed the streets of Donetsk, cars bearing Russian flags and car horns lit.

At the end of the Russian National Security Council’s deliberations, Putin announced the recognition of the two regions controlled by Moscow loyalists since 2014.

Since the 2014 war, Russia has supported separatists in the region, but stopped short of recognizing them as independent states.
