Russian expert: Why does not Karabakh hold a referendum similar to that in Crimea? And why does not Armenia take Karabakh within itself?

  • Monday, March 10, 15:58

 One can have different attitude towards the events in Ukraine, but one thing is clear: what is happening there, has already changed the reality. And if Russia finally attaches at least the Crimea to itself, this reality will change even more, Russian political expert, Andrey Epifantsev, wrote at his Facebook page. 

He also added that in that case several current conflict situations will immediately gain another prospect. "That is to say, if we say that such expression of will and joining another state is legal and will become a new precedent, in that case, why does not Karabakh hold a referendum similar to that in Crimea? And why does not Armenia take Karabakh within itself? Why does not South Ossetia did the same and join Russia. But will it agree, if the Akhalgor-Leningrad region within South Ossetia, populated chiefly by Georgians, will join Georgia as a result of similar referendum? And the Gali region of Abkhazia will follow it: the eastern regions of Georgia may join Azerbaijan, northern Kazakhstan  - Russia... What will happen if Turkey starts delivering its passports to the Crimea Tatars at the places of their close-together living?  Germany in the Kaliningrad region, Estonia in Pytalov region, Finland - in Karelia...", - Epifantsev wrote. The expert thinks that one can draw many such images. One thing is clear that Ukraine is not the last to complete the case, he said.
