The so-called Kaliningrad oblast and the so-called authorities of that pseudo-formation are illegitimate.The status of the region for sure questionable in the world, but not even that, the Kaliningrad oblast illegitimate by Russian law.
Citizens of the Russian Federation, on 12 December 1993 adopted the basic law of their life - the Constitution. The Constitution begins: "We, the multinational people of the Russian Federation ...".
Third article of the Constitution states - "The bearer of sovereignty and the only source of power in the Russian Federation shall be its multinational people. No one may usurp power in the Russian Federation. Seizure of power or usurping state authority shall be prosecuted by federal law". In the sense, that power can not be seized by anybody without a decision by the people.
The Kaliningrad Region, being before an ordinary administrative-territorial unit of the USSR, suddenly became the subject of the Russian Federation, and like the rest of the subjects became eligible for state attributes of power: the status, the adoption of the Basic Law, the definition of a system of legislative and executive power (Article 77 of Constitution) .
Let's talk about two main authorities of a state power: the Kaliningrad Regional Duma ( the Parliament) and the Governor.
They form a system. The question arises. Who has defined that system?
The right to define a system of public authorities in the Kaliningrad region belongs only to people who living on its territory. What do we have then?
The Basic Law of the Kaliningrad region accepted on 28 December 1995 and is called the Charter. It begins with the mysterious words "The Duma of Kaliningrad Oblast ...", in Article 17 of Charter recorded more mystery, that Duma "is a permanent supreme and legislative authority of the Kaliningrad region". There is not even a word about the will of the people either in the preamble or the text of the Charter. So, where did the Duma appeared from, who expressed his will to empower its government? It is unknown.
In the same Charter, they named the chief executive of the region - the Governor. Self-proclaimed Duma has unlawfully presented to us with a second self-proclaimed branch of power. That's how we live, without democracy, driven by impostors and yes we even spend on their maintenance as much as they want.
Now let's talk about the status of the region.
Russia's status is enshrined in the first article of the Constitution: "The Russian Federation - Russia is a democratic federal law-bound State with a republican form of government." The world community considered Constitution as legitimate, since the words beginning "... we the people" and it was accepted on a referendum.
Identification of the form of statehood as Federation, entails a number of legally binding consequences. So, only the state formations can be members (subjects) of federation . They could be called republics, areas, "oblasts", but firstly they must be subjects of the public law. Gaining such law, according to article 3 of the Constitution, possible only by the highest expression of the will of the people living in particular region and differ from other regions. That is a public referendum, the will of the people. No public referendum held on the territory of the so-called "Kaliningrad oblast", and consequently pseudo-formation is illegitimate, and power seized by by thieves - impostors.
In the Russian Federation only 8 state subjects (Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Sakha-Yakutia and Kalmykia and others, in time till December, 12th 1993 held referendum about the status). The remaining 80 regions have not yet become a state subjects, and those regions can not be legitimate. They are simply territories of Russia where citizens of Russia live.
The right of statehood status is eligible by all regions of Russia. This right is written in Article 66 part 1 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
