Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If it is not possible for a region to assert sovereignty, how is it that over 200 independent nations have evolved on this planet? Historically sovereignty often had to be asserted militarily in order to be successful. Latterly it has been sufficient for significant civil resistance or economic cost to be sufficient for a ruling state to cede sovereignty over another region, a process Putin is currently trying to reverse.

Historically, Scotland and England were united by the 1707 act of Union. It would be a relatively simple legal process to repeal that act. The question of how the two states would divide common assets, liabilities, and manage ongoing relations is the hard part.
