The UN International Court of Justice in the Hague today will listen to the position of Russian side regarding Ukraine's lawsuit to the Russian Federation on the violation of international Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. This was reported by the correspondent of 112 Ukraine.
"Today Russia will have to express its position before the court. The Russian delegation is bigger than Ukrainian, if Ukraine has 25 representatives, then Russia has 40. Almost all of them are Foreign Ministry employees, but among them are also German lawyers. The Ukrainian delegation will also attend the gearings, but today it has the right to vote," the correspondent said.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said:
"We expect decisions that will stop the supply of arms to the occupied territory and will put things in order on the uncontrolled section of the Russian-Ukrainian border, as well as help to lift the ban on functioning of the Mejlis in Crimea, and stop harassment of ethnic Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars," he wrote at his Facebook page.
