The International Court of Justice in The Hague, the United Nations High Court, has ordered Russia to immediately end its war against Ukraine. However, it is considered unlikely that Russia will comply with this request.
Russia must immediately end its war of aggression against Ukraine. The International Court of Justice in The Hague, the United Nations High Court, has issued an order to that effect. Court President John Donoku said the violence should be stopped immediately. Russia’s military presence leads to countless deaths and injuries. Moscow must ensure that Russian-backed armed groups comply with the order.
Thus the judges allowed the emergency action in Ukraine. The government in Kiev accuses Russia of abusing the 1948 genocide conference. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Russians in eastern Ukraine should be protected from genocide – but have not presented any evidence of such a crime.
Judgment has primarily a signal effect
However, the current decision is only temporary. Basically, a decision is made only after important steps, which can take many years. It is also considered impossible to follow this order of the Kremlin. Russia had already boycotted the trial on March 7.
The International Court of Justice is tasked with resolving inter-state conflicts as peacefully as possible. Although its judgments are restrictive, there is no way for judges to enforce and enforce their judgments. However, the decision now taken is likely to increase international pressure on Moscow.
