Gain and Loss of State Territory under the International Law

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Autors rakstā aplūko valsts teritorijas iegūšanas un zaudēšanas veidus starptautiskajās tiesībās. Šis jautājums ir kļuvis īpaši aktuāls pēc pēdējiem notikumiem Krimā, kad Krievijas Federācija okupēja šo pussalu un vēlāk to anektēja. The author gives overview of the legal and illegal methods how to acquire and to lose state territory. It is recognised that seizure of the Crimea by military force was illegal during the spring of 2014. The Russian Federation had the rights to manage Kaliningrad till 1995; but as the international community has not expressed any objections concerning Kaliningrad, we could presume that the Russia Federation will own this territory in the future by prescription.
