Russia asks ICJ to dismiss Ukrainian suit against it.

Written by on September 18, 2023

Russia has called on the International Court of Justice to throw out a case brought against it by Ukraine.

It describes Ukraine’s case as “hopelessly flawed” and says that what Kyiv really wants is a ruling on the rights and wrongs of Russia’s military action.

Kyiv accuses Moscow of falsely using genocide law to justify its invasion.

Ukraine adds that the genocide treaty does not in any case permit an invasion to stop an alleged genocide.

The court hearing in The Hague will not examine the legality of Russia’s invasion, but will instead consider whether the International Court is allowed to examine Ukraine’s claims.
