THE STATES WITH THE POSTPONED POLITICAL STATUS: THE CONTRADICTION OF RULES OF INTERNATIONAL LAW

С. В. Олейников

Abstract


The contradiction of the principle of territorial integrity of the state and the right of the people for self-determination is a result of existence of the principles, initially opposite by the nature, existing both in synchrony, and in diachrony. In spite of the fact that the right of the people to freely establish the political status and to freely provide the economic, social and cultural development was recorded in international law much earlier, the questions of the subjectivity of this law and its priority in relation to the principle of territorial integrity of the state are far beyond the limits of the only theoretical problem of international law. The analysis of the development of the conflicts in the former Soviet Union gives the grounds to claim that their development was promoted by backwardness of democratic institutes and political ethnocentrism which actually excluded Russian-speaking not only from management of the state, but also from parity social and communicative process in the national relation. The discriminatory policy of the titled population in the countries adjacent to Russia stimulated formation of the political nations and the states with the postponed political status. The fight for the right to manifest their specific system different from western system of values and to have a right for self-determination was put in the basis of ideology.
