Ukraine Takes Russia To Top UN Court In Bid To End Hostilities

The U.N.’s top court heard dueling cases from Russia and Ukraine regarding ongoing hostilities between the two countries.

In hearings at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, Ukraine asked the panel to order Russia to halt military operations. Kyiv accused Moscow of improperly claiming it sought to prevent genocide in eastern Ukraine.

However, Russia maintained the ICJ should reject Ukraine’s suit, arguing the court does not have jurisdiction over such a case. Moscow said force was used in accordance with the U.N. Charter’s self-defense provisions.

Meanwhile  Both nations laid out arguments for their opposing positions, as fighting between Russian and Ukrainian troops has raged since 2014.

The region has seen intense bombardment that has caused extensive damage and loss of civilian life. The ICJ’s final rulings on questions of preliminary objections and jurisdiction in each case may take months.

In the meantime, there is little prospect for a de-escalation of the volatile situation between the two Slavic neighbors.

In another story by NEWSLEXPOINT.com, Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was charged with rehabilitating Nazi ideology, a charge which carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

Navalny has been a vocal critic of the Kremlin and President Vladimir Putin, and his supporters argue that the charges are politically motivated and an attempt to silence his opposition to the government.
