The Information Policy Ministry of Ukraine is studying the statements of the representative of the Russian delegation to case of Ukraine against Russia at the UN International Court of Justice to expose propaganda and false information.

Deputy Minister Dmytro Zolotukhin wrote this on Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"We are studying the facts of false information and propaganda in the words of the Russian representative in the international court in the Hague... He says Ukrainian armed forces shelled residential buildings, violated the Minsk agreements, that Russia has nothing to do with this and that there are no terrorists there at all," he wrote.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, a representative of Russia at the International Court of Justice Roman Kolodkin said the military actions in Donbas were provoked by violent coup in 2014.

On March 6, 2017, the International Court of Justice began hearing of Ukraine's case against Russia.

On January 16, 2017, Ukraine filed the case with the court to hold Russia accountable for supporting terrorism in eastern Ukraine and discriminating against ethnic Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars in the annexed Crimea.

Ukraine asked the court to impose the provisional measures to prevent further aggravation of the situation and protect the civilian population pending determination of the case on its merits.

Ukraine is asking the court to order Russia to refrain from any action which might aggravate or extend the dispute under the Terrorism Financing Convention before the court or make this dispute more difficult to resolve; exercise appropriate control over its border to prevent further acts of terrorism financing, including the supply of weapons from Russia to the territory of Ukraine; halt and prevent all transfers from the territory of Russia of money, weapons, vehicles, equipment, training, or personnel to groups that have engaged in acts of terrorism against civilians in Ukraine, or that Russia knows may in the future engage in acts of terrorism against civilians in Ukraine; take all measures at its disposal to ensure that any groups operating in Ukraine that have previously received transfers from Russia of money, weapons, vehicles, equipment, training, or personnel will refrain from carrying out acts of terrorism against civilians in Ukraine.
