The UN Court continues hearings against Russia

The hearings will take place in two rounds: Russia will speak on September 18 and 25, and Ukraine will speak on September 19 and 27.

The International Court of Justice in The Hague on Monday, September 18, continues hearings on Ukraine’s claim against the Russian Federation under the genocide convention. Public hearings on preliminary objections raised by Russia will be held September 18-27. Ukrinform reported this.

It was noted that the hearings will be held in two rounds: Russia will have the floor on September 18 and 25, and Ukraine will speak on September 19 and 27.

The dispute concerns the interpretation, application and implementation of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

As you know, in a lawsuit against the Russian Federation at the International Court of Justice, Ukraine demands that the Russian Federation be held accountable for distorting the concept of “genocide.”

Ukraine filed suit on February 26, 2022, two days after the start of a full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation.

The Kremlin has accused Kyiv of genocide that Ukraine allegedly committed in Donbass since 2014. The Russian Federation used this as a basis for sending troops and launching a large-scale offensive on February 24, 2022.

The parties will present their positions, including the states that have taken the initiative to join this matter.

It is reported that 32 states have joined the cause in their interventions. They will also participate in the court hearing.

It was previously reported that the UN does not recognize the genocide of Ukrainians by Russia – despite the testimony.

We remind you that the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) may issue new arrest warrants for the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and the highest leadership of the aggressor country.
