The Arbitration Tribunal instituted by Ukraine against Russia on violations by the Russian Federation of the provisions of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea approved the procedural framework, including the calendar for oral and written pleadings.

This has been said in the statement of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.

"On May 12, 2017, the Tribunal in an arbitration instituted by Ukraine against the Russian Federation in respect of a “dispute concerning coastal state rights in the Black Sea, Sea of Azov, and Kerch Strait” held its first procedural meeting. During the meeting, the Tribunal consulted the Parties in respect of the procedural framework for the arbitration, including the calendar for oral and written pleadings," the report reads.

On May 18, 2017, the Tribunal adopted Rules of Procedure for the arbitration in light of the discussion at the first procedural meeting. The Tribunal’s Rules of Procedure and press photographs of the meeting are available for download on the PCA website.

The arbitral proceedings were instituted on September 16, 2016 when Ukraine served on the Russian Federation a Notification and Statement of Claim1 under Annex VII to the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The Notification and Statement of Claim refers to a “dispute concerning coastal state rights in the Black Sea, Sea of Azov, and Kerch Strait”.
