Ukraine is trying to use the International Court of Justice mechanisms for political purposes in bad faith. Russia is to prove this fact at the upcoming hearings in the case of “Ukraine vs. Russian Federation”, the Russian Foreign Ministry site reports on June 2.
Russian representatives will also substantiate the fact that the International Court of Justice does not have jurisdiction to consider the case.
On January 16, 2017, Ukraine brought a lawsuit to the UN International Court of Justice, in which it accused Russia of violating the 1999 International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and the 1965 International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
The position of the Russian Foreign Ministry is that the fact of dispute between countries under these conventions doesn’t exist. Ukraine is trying to leverage these mechanisms exclusively for political purposes.
Political scientist Sergey Kurginyan called this appeal noise for publicity.
