The status of Crimea can not be neglected

Sir, the normalization of relations with Russia without resolving the problems of Crimea, as suggested by Kupchan, it will be absolutely useless. If the people of Ukraine and Georgia decided voluntarily to give up territory to its neighbors, then punitive actions by the international community would not be required. Unfortunately, events unfolded not. There is a return to the old beliefs, allowing to redraw borders by force. We should not accept the argument of Russia that the seizure of these strategic areas — protection of the right to self-determination.
