Vice PM Klympush-Tsyntsadze: ICJ’s judgment to provide new arguments for further pressure on Russia

Ukrinform
The judgment of the International Court of Justice in The Hague will provide not so much political as legal arguments for continuing pressure on Russia to stop aggression against Ukraine.

This was stated by Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Indeed, there are few real instruments for compelling the Russian Federation to comply with the judgment of the International Court of Justice. In addition, this provides not purely political, not purely diplomatic but legal arguments to continue to exert pressure on the Russian Federation in order to stop its aggression against Ukraine," Klympush-Tsyntsadze said to journalists in Kyiv.

As you know, Ukraine in The Hague accuses Russia of violating two international conventions - the fight against the financing of terrorism and the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination.

As reported, March 6, the International Court of Justice in The Hague began the first hearings on Ukraine's claim against Russia regarding the violation of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
