The International Court of Justice (ICJ), the principal judicial organ of the United Nations, hearing the Ukraine versus Russia case where Kyiv accuses Moscow of violating the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination has set the date for submitting memorandums by the sides, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine for European Integration Olena Zerkal has said.
“Last week the Court determined the date for submitting the memorandum by Ukraine – June 12, 2018 and counter-memorandum by Russia – July 12, 2019. They would contain all evidences and arguments of the sides in the case,” Zerkal said in an article published in the Dzerkalo.Tyzhnia Ukraine weekly.
She said that the issuing of the order regarding interim measures by the ICJ is not the end of the case. It will take several years to hear the case.
