The President admitted that many of the Republic upon entering into the USSR received from Russia a number of new territories.

Путин: При создании СССР было прописано право выхода, но не было прописано процедуры. Если республика вошла в состав СССР, но получила в свой багаж огромное количество российских земель, то тогда выходила бы с чем пришла. И не тащила бы с собой подарки от русского народа! pic.twitter.com/UKNr9xhPLl
