The international court of justice
The representative of Russia said in the Hague that the claim of Ukraine is not in the jurisdiction of the International court of justice.
Russian Federation denies the legal and factual basis for the implementation of the International court of justice measures, which insisted Ukraine during the first day of hearings in the Hague in the framework of the lawsuit against Russia.
This position was presented during today’s hearing the Director of the legal Department of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Roman Kolodkin.
“The Russian Federation has a strong commitment in both cases (violation of the International Convention for the suppression of the financing of terrorism and the International Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination. – Ed.) which are now put forward by Ukraine . Since, this does not mean that, as suggested by Ukraine yesterday, we have to somehow make the order on measures of restraint. We do not see any legal or factual basis for such measures,” said Kolodkin.
He also accused Ukraine that in its lawsuit against Russia, she allegedly “wants to connect two different situations are managed by different legal instruments” and “to put the court in relations between Russia and Ukraine, which are clearly outside the jurisdiction of this case”.
As reported, Ukraine has appealed to the international court of justice regarding the introduction of preventive measures against the Russian Federation, which will enable courts to prevent deterioration and to protect the civilian population during the time required for the hearing. It is expected that the court will take an appropriate decision within a few weeks.
Today, in accordance with the rules of the International court in the Hague in the case of Ukraine against Russia is the Russian side.
