    I don’t understand why we’re talking legality of the referendum and not the legality of deposing your sitting president. If anything, these two should cancel each other out. There’s absolutely no reason to think that, in the midst of a popular revolution, other elements of the country cannot take up extralegal means to further themselves. Why does Ukraine need to have the same borders pre and post revolution? This is a revolution, isn’t it?
