Was Annexing Crimea legal?

Annexing a Country is generally considered Illegal.

Annexation in international law, is the forcible acquisition of one state’s territory by another state, usually following military occupation of the territory.
It is generally held to be an illegal act.

Examples of Annexing have included:

One of history’s most famous examples of annexation was the NAZI German occupation of parts of Czechoslovakia in 1938, which became one of the causes of World War II.

Similar to the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014, and their subsequent attempt at annexation of further parts of Ukraine in 2022.

The annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany in 1938.

Great Britain and France hoped to prevent another world war by giving into Hitler’s demands through a policy of appeasement.

It seems the West made the same mistake in 2014.
