Odyssée dans le conundrum des réactions décentralisées à l’illicite

Abstract : Until the collapse of the former President Yanukovych's regime, the political upheaval in Ukraine constituted primarily a domestic crisis. It has-turned into an international one after the Russian military intervention in Crimea and its incorporation into the Russian Federation. The violation of Ukraine's territorial integrity has generated an obligation for other States not to recognize as lawful a situation created by a breach of an obligation arising under a peremptory norm of general international law. However, given the Russian veto power in the Security Council, no sanction has been imposed by the UN body. It is within this framework that the US and the European Union have sought to overcome this deficiency by unilaterally adopting their own sanctions. These decentralized measures raise several issues from an international law perspective insofar as, some of them, targeting not only Crimea but also more broadly Russia, exceed the scope of the aforementioned duty of non-recognition.
