Ukraine respects UN International Court’s decision, - Groysman
Other international legal authorities should now assess Russia’s actions in Ukraine, Prime Minister says
Ukraine appreciates and respects the latest decision of the UN International Court in the litigation between Ukraine and Russia. Volodymyr Groysman, Ukraine’s Prime Minister said that during his meeting with students in Kyiv.
‘We deeply respect the decision. All of our structures are working on bringing the truth to all international authorities, and we’ll keep on doing that; the decision’s been made and I’ve got nothing to add. Russia is an aggressor who‘s been sending troops and heavy weaponry to Ukraine. Hundreds of war machines and everyday attacks … what kind of evidence one needs after this?,’ he said.
As 112 International reported, the decision of the UN International Court was made public on April 19.
The document was uploaded on the official website.
In particular, the court denied temporary measures against Russia under the Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism. ICJ decided that the conditions necessary to determine additional measures concerning rights violated in Ukraine on the basis of the Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism do not meet the requirements.
At the same time, International Court granted Ukraine’s request on temporary measures in terms of the application against Russian Federation within International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
Court opted to maintain Crimean Tatars’ right to create its own institutions and demanded Russia to rehabilitate Mejlis activity. Russia also has to provide possibility to use Ukrainian language in the educational system of Crimea.
