The UN International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague has ruled that it has jurisdiction to hear most of the points in the dispute between Ukraine and Russia regarding the accusation of genocide. Moscow claims that its two-year military invasion of Ukraine was intended to prevent the genocide of the Russian-speaking population there. Because of this, Kiev filed a lawsuit with the UN’s highest court for disputes between states, because in Ukraine’s opinion, Russia is abusing international law with its argument.

The court will not hear claims that Russia’s invasion violated the 1948 Genocide Convention and that Moscow’s recognition of two separatist republics in eastern Ukraine also violated the convention, the AP reported.

Ukraine sued Russia days after Russia launched its ongoing armed aggression on February 24, 2022.

Court decisions are legally binding, but the tribunal has no enforcement mechanisms. Already in March 2022, the court ordered Russia to immediately stop military operations in Ukraine. As expected, Moscow rejected the request.
