KYIV (QHA) -

Scientists of the National Academy of Security Service of Ukraine have prepared a study called "Ideological and quasi-legal justification of the annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea by the Russian Federation".

The authors covered ideological, historical and political versions of Russia's imperial policy towards Ukraine through the prism of pseudoscientific and political thought on the status of the Crimea.

Specialists of the Academy also conducted a political and legal analysis of the anti-legal justification of annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea by the Russian Federation. Among the documentary sources of "justification" for annexation, the study provides an example of a draft law (No. 462741-6 of February 28, 2014) introduced by the "Spravedlivaya Rossiya" faction on February 28, 2014, on the admission of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to the Russian Federation.

This document was recognized by experts of the Legal Department of the State Duma itself as "inconsistent with generally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties of the Russian Federation".

“I would like to emphasize that the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea was controlled by the Russian special security forces, the so-called "green men" at that time. As Putin later admitted, they actually organized the so-called "referendum".
The study "Ideological and quasi-legal justification of the annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea by the Russian Federation". will be presented to the public in the near future,” SBU informed.

Earlier, the representatives of the Belgian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly expressed their support to Ukrainian colleagues in the issue of restoring Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Previously, Friz, Ukrainian MP made a statement that Igor Dodon, Moldovan President, expressing his opinion on the future of the unrecognized Transdniestria and its possible membership in Ukraine, actually relayed the Kremlin's opinion about a possible exchange of this region for the occupied Crimea.
