The delegation of the Russian Federation in the UN International Criminal Court said Ukraine ‘uses this authority as a ground for bringing up political accusations’. The respective message showed up at the site of Russian foreign ministry.

The Russian authority added that Ukraine 'never established its claims decently'.

As 112 International reported, on March 7, Russian delegation claimed that the pro-Kremlin militants allegedly found weapons hidden in the mines in eastern Ukraine, assuring that it was either Soviet or the Ukrainian weaponry left behind by the Ukrainian army in Donbas.

Previously, Ukraine sued Russia for breaching two UN conventions within this country’s military aggression in Donbas – the one on countering sponsorship of terrorism and the one about liquidation of all forms of racial discrimination.     

Ukraine has been demanding that Russia stops funding illegal armed units in Donbas and returns the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars their legal status in the annexed Crimea.
