Should we recognise Navalny and his political party as a banned organisation like IS? This is a totalitarian sect with a pronounced manic-depressive psychosis.
Non-Russian nationals cannot own land in Crimea anymore since a recent regulation. France was forced to criticise this internal Russian regulation from “abroad”. This comment from the French authorities is unbearable since Russia doesn’t criticise internal French policies about land property or other internal matters.
Recurrent narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea and its integration to Russia. Additionally it is claimed that Western countries are forced into Russophobic policies and speech because of an external power (implicitly the US).
The signature of the decree is another illegal move by Moscow on appropriation of objects of the Ukrainian state and private property in the territory of illegally occupied Crimea, gross violation of Ukrainian law and international humanitarian law.
Ukraine will use every opportunity of international law and international courts to revoke the Decree and hold Russia accountable for this offence.
We call on the international community to continue to increase pressure on the aggressor state, including the imposition of sanctions.
On April 1, the European Union condemned the new developments concerning the land ownership in Crimea. In no case can it be considered as "internal affairs", since this the new decree violates international laws, the Russian Federation in this context doesn't have the authority to rule about land ownership on the peninsula of Crimea. Details as below:
The European Union does not recognise the illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula by Russia, which is a clear violation of international law. Therefore, the European Union does not recognise this decree, which is yet another attempt to forcibly integrate the illegally-annexed peninsula into Russia. Crimea is part of Ukraine. The decree is also a violation of international humanitarian law, as it is another step towards the imposition of Russian citizenship in the peninsula. This could also lead to the arbitrary deprivation of property.
On April 13, France also condemned the ban as part of the integration of this territory in total violation of international law:
France unreservedly condemns Russian Presidential Decree No. 201 of 20 March prohibiting individuals who do not hold Russian citizenship from owning land over a large part of the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol. These two measures (compulsory conscription and prohibition of foreigners from owning land in Crimea) taken a few days apart by the Russian authorities, perfectly illustrate the strategy of forced integration implemented by Russia in Crimea, in total violation of international law.
