"On the one hand, international laws regulating basic rights of nations' for self-determination exist, on the other hand, Ukrainian laws do not stipulate guarantees for ensuring these rights. Nevertheless, international standards are higher than standards used by certain counties. So it can be said that the referendum has legitimate basis," Piskorski told Interfax.
