Hague International Court Ordered Russia To Stop The War
The International Court of Justice in The Hague ordered Russia to suspend hostilities in Ukraine as interim measures pending consideration of Kyiv's complaint about Moscow's misinterpretation of the Genocide Convention as a pretext for aggression.
The Court recognized that the halt is necessary because there was a real and imminent risk that irreparable harm would be done to Ukraine and its citizens before it makes a final decision in the case.
Russia, by order of the court, must suspend hostilities.
In addition, referring to Russia’s statement to the UN that the so-called Donetsk and Lugansk Republics requested military support, the Hague court demanded that Russia would not offer any military aid.
But court rejected Ukraine's request to demand from Russia a report on the implementation of interim measures a week after the issuance of the order.
13 judges voted in favor of the provisional measures, two judges - elected from Russia and China - voted against.
The order on provisional measures was published on the website of the court.
