Two areas of Ukraine have already voted to join the Russian Federation and were denied. The reason for their denial was the shit storm that occurred when Crimea was admitted in the same manner as is being discussed now. The plan at that time was to work out a deal with Ukraine that would grant those oblasts a degree of autonomy and self government. Ukraine did not maintain that agreement and threatened to subdue the regions by military force.

I don't agree that it is our responsibility not to accept the process until we can establish that it was a valid vote, but to accept the vote and honor the process unless it can be definitely shown that it was staged by inimical forces.
