Communist Yugoslavia.

Both the West and Russia have been inconsistent and contradictory, about the principles governing these situations like in Donbass

The West is touting 'principles' that are the exact opposite of what it touted with Kosovo.

And Russia is touting 'principles' that are the exact opposite of what it touted with Chechnya

The international law is in fact simple ... 'self-determination of peoples' is a right more sacred than any existing national borders

Scotland has a legal right to declare independence at any time

This is per Article 1 of the United Nations Charter

Communist Yugoslavia.

And this is further clear from the 2010 Hague International Court judgement on the Kosovo case, which declared that 

- it is not illegal for a people to unilaterally declare their independence
- this takes precedence over so-called 'sovereign borders'

and thus

- it was not illegal for Kosovo to ask for help from NATO against Serbia/Yugoslavia (tho the way NATO did that may well have involved war crimes)

- it remains legal for Kosovo to merge with Albania if they wish

Communist Yugoslavia.

Russia cites the Kosovo case, as proving that Donbass has a right to separate from Ukraine ... and to merge with Russia.

but the Kosovo case also means that Chechya had a right to separate from Russia, and it was illegal of Russia to kill Chechens to stop their right of independence.

Communist Yugoslavia

And also

Taiwan has a right to stay independent of China

and also
Hong Kong, Tibet, Xinjiang with its Uighurs, all have a right to rebel

Kurds have a right to their state free of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria

Catalonia has a right to be free of Spain ... and so on
