Ukraine submitted a memorandum to the International Court of Justice of the United Nations due to Russia’s justification of military aggression with baseless accusations of “genocide” against Ukraine.
This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba on Twitter, reports Ukrinform.
«Today, Ukraine submitted a major filing at the ICJ. We prove that Russia violated the Genocide Convention by justifying its aggression with a false pretext of a ‘genocide’ that never was. Critical step to hold Russia accountable and make Russia pay for the harm it has inflicted».– noted Kuleba.
As reported, on April 14, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a statement “On the commission of genocide by the Russian Federation in Ukraine.” 363 People’s Deputies voted for the relevant Resolution No. 7276.
