Ukraine has officially appealed to the International Court of Justice of the United Nations with a request to consider the merits of the case of Russia’s attempts to annex the territories of Ukraine.
“After Putin’s attempts at annexation, Ukraine officially notified the International Court of Justice of the United Nations that this step grossly violates the legally binding order on temporary measures issued on March 16. We ask the court to consider the merits of the case as soon as possible,” he said.
It will be recalled that the International Court of Justice in The Hague, known as the UN Court, on March 16 made an interim decision in favor of Ukraine in the lawsuit against Russia. According to him, Russia should “immediately stop the military operations that began on February 24 on the territory of Ukraine.” It also applies to armed groups controlled by Moscow.
Kremlin spokesman Dmytro Peskov said that Russia is not going to comply with the decision of the UN court.
