Hague Court starts hearings of Ukraine lawsuit against Russia on March 6

On the 6th of March the International Court of Justice in the Hague held the first hearings in Ukraine’s lawsuit against Russia, according to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
The Ukrainian government is accusing Russia of violating the Terrorist Financing Treaty through its support of “illegally armed groups” in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic. In addition, the claim covers the alleged mistreatment of Crimea’s Tartar and ethnic Ukrainian populations when Russia annexed the area in March 2014.
The lawsuit was filed in January 2017, according to the Ukrainian President’s press office. Moscow reacted by protesting it was going to use every legal defense at its disposal.
The hearing will take four days. The Ukrainian side will be heard first, on March 6 and 8; Russia will be testifying on March 7 and 9.
