In the case of Ukraine v. Russia in the International Court of Justice, 42 countries have already sided with Ukraine.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about this on his Twitter page .

“42 states sided with Ukraine in the case against the Russian Federation in the International Court of Justice and announced their intention to join our lawsuit. I am grateful to the partners who have chosen the right side of history. This is the side of truth, international law and justice. Together we will hold the Russian Federation accountable” , the note says.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Minister of Justice of Ukraine Denis Malyuska said that the tribunal to hold Russia accountable for armed aggression would be formed within the framework of the International Court of Justice , but it could also be a separate structure. According to him, the establishment of the International Tribunal requires an agreement by many countries, which should be formalized by an international agreement.

“Such an agreement and such an international treaty should receive international support from international organizations. First of all, of course, the UN General Assembly is considered,” Maliuska said.
