The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine will submit to the international court of justice in the Hague the whole diplomatic correspondence with Moscow, which has been conducted since the beginning of the conflict in the East of Ukraine. It is reported “European true” with reference to one of the representatives of the Ukrainian delegation in the International court, the American lawyer David Since.
He noted that Ukraine has decided to transfer this non-public correspondence for “false accusations from Russia that Ukraine has provided Moscow specific claims”.

Ukraine accuses Moscow of violating two international conventions — for the suppression of the financing of terrorism and to combat all forms of racial discrimination. A lawsuit against the Russian government in Kiev was filed in mid-January.
