Ukraine in the International court of justice in the Hague (Netherlands) proves that Russia violates international conventions, particularly the Convention on combating the financing of terrorism and the Convention on the prohibition of racial discrimination, convinced the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin.

“When Russian officials in the Hague officially say that these hundreds of tanks, armored vehicles, endless amounts of artillery, “Grad” and all the rest just found in mines, that the whole world laughs, but it’s certainly unkind laughter. We understand what you’re dealing with, so we must bring the process to the end and to bring peace to Donbass”, – said Klimkin.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine stressed the importance of non-recognition by the world community of the occupation of the Crimea.
“No compromise on the issue of temporary occupation of the Crimea. She will never be recognized by our partners and friends. It is a position of all civilized States, and anyone who understands the international rules and values,” said the foreign Minister.
As reported earlier, the representative of the Russian Federation in the Hague, said that Pro-Russian rebels and their tanks, “Grad” and other weapons pulled from the mines in the Donbas.
