The International Court of Justice, which is the UN’s principal judicial body, has partially granted Ukraine’s request for indicating provisional measures versus Russia.

 

 

The relevant ruling was read out by Court President Ronny Abraham.

 

The Court has ruled, in particular, that with regard to the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, Russia must refrain from imposing limitations on the ability of the Crimean Tatar community to conserve its representative institutions and ensure the availability of education in the Ukrainian language.

 

With regard to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, the Court has ruled that there is no need for indicating provisional measures with regard to Russia.
