UN International Court of Justice published full text of decision on Ukraine’s application against Russia. 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.

International court started consideration of Ukraine’s application against Russia on March 6. Ukraine asked the court to take temporary measures against Russian Federation until the actual proceedings in the case start. Ukraine particularly requested the court to oblige Russia to refrain from the actions which may complicate the hearing of the case; provide proper control over its state border to prevent terrorist acts, as well as prevent terrorist groups from receiving money, weapons and other forms of support.
