MOSCOW, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. International law experts polled by Itar-Tass on Tuesday said they believed that the Crimean authorities who were planning to hold a referendum on the autonomy’s status were acting in full compliance with international law.
According to them, the United Nations International Court’s decision on Serbia’s breakaway province of Kosovo passed on July 22, 2010 on the basis of Article 1 paragraph 2 of the UN Charter created a precedent under which a region seeking self-determination should not necessarily have a mandate from the central authorities to hold a referendum on self-determination.
“A precedent in international law automatically becomes a law. Therefore, the Crimean authorities are acting in full compliance with international law, including the decision of the UN International Court,” experts emphasized.
