3rd day of ICJ hearings in The Hague: Ukraine comments on Russia`s ”arguments”

The International Court of Justice in The Hague is holding the third day of hearings in a Ukraine vs Russia case, where Kyiv insists on introducing provisional measures against the Russian Federation.

Today, Ukraine will express its objections to the arguments submitted by Russian agents yesterday, March 7, according to an UNIAN correspondent in The Hague.

Tomorrow, on March 9, the floor will again be given to the Russian side.

Earlier, Ukraine instituted proceedings against the Russian Federation on January 16, 2017, with regard to alleged violations of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism of December 9, 1999, and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination of December 21, 1965. Both states are parties to these two instruments.

The provisional measures Ukraine requests include a freeze on providing money, weapons, vehicles, equipment, training or personnel to the separatists.
