Putin presented the agreement to the State Duma on Sunday. It will be reviewed in the Duma on Monday and sent to the upper house Federation Council for review on Tuesday.
Last Friday, President Putin signed a decree unifying four regions of Ukraine as part of Russia.
Prior to this, referendums were held in these regions in which the people of those regions voted to join Russia. But Ukraine and its Western allies called the referendum a sham. Western countries say that Russia has forcibly occupied these areas.
