Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced the filing of a memorandum to the International Court of Justice on groundless accusations of "genocide" by Ukraine on the part of the Russian Federation.
"Ukraine has filed a Memorandum with the International Court of Justice. We prove that the Russian Federation violated the Genocide Convention by justifying its military aggression with baseless accusations of "genocide" against Ukraine. This is an important step to hold Russia accountable and compensate for the damage caused," Kuleba wrote on Twitter on Friday.
Today, Ukraine submitted a major filing at the ICJ. We prove that Russia violated the Genocide Convention by justifying its aggression with a false pretext of a ‘genocide’ that never was. Critical step to hold Russia accountable and make Russia pay for the harm it has inflicted.— Dmytro Kuleba (@DmytroKuleba) July 1, 2022
