The world is facing the emergence of new borders within existing countries on the basis of the realization of the right to self-determination, the journalist writes AB Sitelink in the Dutch newspaper.
The annexation of Crimea to Russia faced in the West universal judgment as if the violation of the norms of international law, like the Creator of the material.
"The Russian President Putin as if busy resumption of Russian expansionist policy against the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Russians like responsible for developing the risk of a new cold war. But Isn't "annexation" is Not just a " liberation?" the analyst writes.
according to his vision, if the "Autonomous province of Kosovo" can make their own choices about their future, we do Not have the ability to be no legal reason to deny such a right to " Autonomous Republic of Crimea ".
"in the West Putin is only allowed to hate, while in Russia, according to the polls the opinions of a large number of people, there is mass support for his policies in Crimea. Admire him in such large countries as China, India and Brazil, because he is Not afraid to oppose the West, " writes the Creator of the article.
According to the observer, in this case, the West is clearly adheres to double standards. That only fuels suspicion that the right to self-determination is given only to the friends of the Western countries, But Not their opponents.
"Do not suffer from the West blinkered view, selective mistrust and double standards? Unless the Western powers would Not go to military intervention in the event of the existence of danger to their Inhabitants?", - writes Sitelink, wondering why the West is denied to the people of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in Georgia and Lugansk and Donetsk, in Ukraine the right of self-determination.
in his vision, the UN must ensure that the boundary change occurred by developed procedures, through dialogue and under international control.
