Russia should review the results of the referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan; the path from the referendum to the formation of an independent state long, no one can guarantee that it will be passed to the end; the key issue here is not the legitimacy of the referendum and its timing, its propriety «here and now», said the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.

«The issue of recognition or non-recognition of the referendum results is not so relevant. The path from the referendum to the formation of an independent and recognized by other powers of the state is very long, and nobody can guarantee that it will be once completed to the end,» Kosachev wrote in Facebook.

Therefore, Russia, like most other States, «should not and will not take any hasty steps in this direction,» said the Senator.

Preliminary results of an independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan (the turnout in 72% and 93% after accounting for the 9% of ballots) politician considers the expected. Kurdistan — a part of one of the most complicated knots of the middle East, he said.

«The Kurds are the largest ethnic group without their own state, and their desire to find such clear. It is obvious that in conditions when the middle East for several years has led to a state of total chaos directed blast obvious external followed, the Kurds could see this as a chance to achieve its historic dream,» writes the Senator.

In a situation of stability and sustainability of the national States, these chances are much smaller, said Kosachev. «And all those who rejoiced rebellious «Arab spring» and today, by coincidence, the protest against the peaceful referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan — in fact got another product (in addition to the same «Islamic state»*) private intervention in the middle East processes. And obviously not the last», — he stressed.

Kosachev explained that the consequences of the realization of the right of Kurds to self-determination can be very serious, as they affect multiple States: Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Iran. Each of them has its own problems, says Kosachev, and a common problem with the Kurds is a confrontation with a powerful enemy in the face is forbidden in Russia and other countries of the terrorist group ISIS*.

«Not by chance, and regional and Western powers have called on the Iraqi Kurds to postpone the referendum and begin a dialogue between the Central government and the breakaway region under international mediation. That is, the key question is not the legitimacy of the referendum and its timing, in its appropriateness here and now», — concluded the Senator.
