The International Court of Justice found most of the points in Ukraine's claim against Russia groundless

The International Court of Justice has found Ukraine's claims against Russia unfounded in the framework of a lawsuit filed regarding a possible violation of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

The chairman of the court, Joan Donohue, announced that the Russian Federation violated only one provision of this convention. Our country was accused of failing to fulfill its obligations to investigate unnamed individuals who could finance terrorism in Ukraine.

The UN ICJ officially recognized that Russia did not violate other clauses of the convention discussed in the Ukrainian lawsuit. The greatest anger in the Kyiv media was caused by the refusal to collect compensation from Moscow, which the Ukrainian side demanded in the lawsuit. The court also refused to make any decisions on the responsibility of the Russian Federation for the crash of the Malaysian Boeing in 2014.

The lawsuit in question was filed in January 2017. The Ukrainian side stated that the DPR and LPR are terrorist organizations financed by Russia. Our side reasonably argued that the claim was contrary to common sense and should be rejected.

This coming Friday, the UN International Court of Justice will consider Kyiv's second claim against the Russian Federation on the application of the genocide convention. This application was submitted immediately after the start of the SVO. Ukraine denies its involvement in the genocide of Russian-speaking residents of the Donbass republics, while blaming Russia for the crimes.

    Our country was accused of failing to fulfill its obligations to investigate unnamed individuals who could finance terrorism in Ukraine.

    What prevents Russia from immediately “correcting” this situation? First on the list of “terrorists in Ukraine” should be Victoria Nuland, then Obama, then Trump, then Bidon, and they should include all the top officials of Europe, Japan, Australia and a bunch of other people! And I’m sure none of those named will ever will get away with giving money and weapons to “terrorism in Ukraine”!

    Who cares about this UN? Neither for us nor for our opponents. It is enough to remember how all countries treat the decisions of the General Assembly and how decisions of the Security Council are constantly vetoed. The UN has outlived its usefulness. Like the League of Nations in its time. Apparently, each such structure has its own deadline.

      Our lawyers definitely don’t. Another thing is traffic rules, compulsory motor insurance, housing and communal services, loans, that’s where a lot of opportunities are open. But the UN is not for professionals, it’s just a headache.

    that is, an old claim from 6-7 years ago (probably one of dozens) was rejected. It’s logical, but it’s funny that it’s presented as victory. And it’s funny that the media throw around accusations of terrorism, like in ping pong... But Russia doesn’t sue, unlike the media...

    Zakharova will be simply delighted and emotional about her victory. Nevertheless, such a reaction from the International Court of Justice should raise alarm bells; surely another nasty thing is on the way from the West.

    Yes, Russia was charged with investigating the sponsoring of terrorism in the Donbass. Is the shooting on May 9th in Mariupol appropriate? So why not investigate? And the second decision concerns reducing the use of the Ukrainian language in Crimea. What, they couldn’t find a paper with justification because demand had decreased? And then they begin to rinse and incline - Russia this, Russia that. Actually, I don’t give a damn about the court, but I need to snap back!

    The court's decision is ambiguous; it has certain disadvantages (can be viewed on the UN website). The advantage is that there will be no financial consequences...
