US unhappy with the idea of a referendum on joining South Ossetia to Russia

Referendum – a referendum is different and not all Nations are supposed to freely Express their opinions – apparently so according to the White house, the court in a negative U.S. reaction to news about carrying out in 2017 in South Ossetia the referendum on joining the Republic in the Russian Federation.

While the States are fighting on all fronts with the international evil,” constantly reminding the world, where the axis of evil is this, Russia continues to acquire more territory. No sooner had the White house to recover from the accession of the Russian Federation of the Crimea as the referendum on joining of our country began in South Ossetia.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the political Council under the President of South Ossetia and signed by the President of the Republic Leonid Tibilov and the speaker of the Parliament Anatoly Bibilov. The document States that the referendum on the accession of the Republic of South Ossetia in the Russian Federation will be held in the next, 2017, immediately after the presidential elections in the Republic. The main motive of this decision of the South Ossetian authorities called a “long-term interests of its people and the stability of the socio-political situation in the country.”

According to the President of South Ossetia Leonid Tibilov, this method of joining Russia had to protect the latter from another “political hysteria” of the West.

“Through a referendum is a legitimate right of citizens to Express their will – we liberate Russia from the political risks that could occur by direct entry of South Ossetia in its composition”, – quotes its words of RIA Novosti.

However, the President Tibilov was wrong. Not waiting for the referendum, which, by the way, may not happen any serious violations, the White house in the person of state Department spokesman mark Toner said that the United States will never recognize the referendum as legitimate.

“We recognize the extremely territorial integrity of Georgia, therefore, the attempt of South Ossetia to gain freedom, or to assert a claim of sovereignty believe it is illegal,” said Toner, quoted by TASS.
