International Court of Justice denies Ukraine to measures against Russia

The International Court of Justice in The Hague passed an interim decision, in which it refused to recognize Russia's involvement in the financing of terrorism.

It should be noted that the Ukrainian side in its suit demanded that Russia be held accountable for allegedly violating two international conventions: the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination and the fight against the financing of terrorism.

Insisting on the introduction of restrictive measures, Ukraine, in particular, demanded to ensure control throughout the Russian-Ukrainian border, to limit the assistance of the DPR and the LPR from Russia, as well as to resume the activity of the Majlis prohibited in Russia, and to remove restrictions on the teaching of the Ukrainian language in the Crimea.

The court refused to introduce interim measures under the Convention on Combating the Financing of Terrorism, finding Ukraine's evidence unconvincing, eventually imposing no restrictions on Russia on Donbass and urging the parties to implement the Minsk agreements.
