The European Union has submitted information to the International Court of Justice of the United Nations as part of the case of Ukraine against the Russian Federation regarding accusations of "genocide", which the Russian Federation used to justify its invasion of Ukraine.
This was reported in the press service of the Court.
It is noted that on August 17, the European Union submitted to the court information regarding the case of accusations of genocide under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Ukraine v. Russian Federation) under Article 34, paragraph 2 of the Statute of the Court and Art. 69, paragraph 2 of the court rules.
"We are grateful to the EU for joining the case of Ukraine against Russia at the UN International Court of Justice on charges of genocide. Justice will prevail," - responded the representative office of Ukraine to the EU.
We will remind you that on March 16, the UN International Court of Justice in The Hague ordered Russia to stop military operations in Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022, the declared purpose of which was to "prevent and punish" the alleged genocide in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine (more details - in the article The first decision from The Hague : what does the order of the UN Court in the case against Russia on "genocide" mean).
The Kremlin said they would ignore the decision.
"European Truth" talked in detail about Ukraine's lawsuit and how the Kremlin's statements gave grounds to file a lawsuit against the Russian Federation. Details in the article - In The Hague for genocide: what Ukraine wrote in the lawsuit against Russia to the UN Court.
