The International Court of Justice of the United Nations has set a timetable for the hearings of the Ukraine's case against Russia until the summer of 2019. This is stated in the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"On May 12, a meeting of the delegations of the parties of Ukraine and Russia took place in Hague, under the chairmanship of the President of the Court, Ronnie Abraham, as a result of which a schedule of further procedures in the case was determined. Ukraine must submit its written memorandum by June 12, 2018, its counter-memorandum - until July 12, 2019, "the report says.
It is also stressed that the terms of submission of the memorandum of Ukraine - 13 months - correspond to the general intention of the Ukrainian side.
The results of the meeting, which was procedural in nature, will be formalized by the order of the President of the Court.
We recall that on April 19, the International Court of Justice in Hague announced its interim decision on the lawsuit of Ukraine against Russia. In particular, the court refused Ukraine to impose temporary measures on the Russian Federation in the part of the suit about financing of terrorism by Russia. The court also denied part of the claim for racial discrimination on the conditions of Ukraine.
However, the court partially satisfied the claim, decided to apply temporary measures to the Russian Federation for discrimination against the Crimean Tatar people, obliged to give access to education in Ukrainian language and the resumption of the work of the Mejlis. In addition, the court ordered Ukraine and Russia to comply with the Minsk agreements in full.
