BRUSSELS, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has predicted the outcome of EU summit on Ukraine but does not see the reasons for imposing restrictive measures on Russia which has not violated international law, Vladimir Chizhov, Russia’s permanent representative to the European Union, said on Friday.
“After all, Russia has done nothing that violates international law,” Chizhov told Russian journalists.
In its final document, the European Council says that the Crimean referendum violates the Ukrainian Constitution.
"Any referendum held in a region that wants to separate from any state contradicts the laws of that state. But there is no formulation saying that such referendums run counter to international law. We believe and are deeply convinced that these decisions, I mean the referendum and the subsequent steps taken by the Russian side, are fitting quite well into the norms of international law. We are trying to explain that to our partners in the European Union,” Chizhov emphasized.
