Russia passed the UN International Court its remarks, where it claimed this authority does not have the jurisdiction to consider the case as Ukraine sued Russia in 2017; the Ukrainian side charged Russia with sponsoring the international terrorist activity. This is mentioned on the website of Ukraine's Foreign Ministry.   

The Ukrainian authority reiterated that in January 2017, Ukraine turned to the UN International Court against the Russian Federation - 'due to numerous and systematic violations of the International Convention on Combating the Sponsorship of Terrorism and the International Convention on Liquidation of all forms of Racial Discrimination'. Ukraine filed the Memorandum that described and confirmed all violations allowed by the Russian Federation, reads the message.    

Russia used its right to object and passed these objections to the Court.

The Ukrainian side said it hoped the UN Court would decline these comments, deciding it has the jurisdiction in this particular case. 

The court ruled that Ukraine should reply to Russia's remarks by January 14, 2019.
