Deputy Foreign Minister Zerkal: ICJ To Pass Ruling On Imposition Of Temporary Measures Regarding Russia Before May

Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine for European integration Olena Zerkal expects the International Court of Justice (ICJ) will pass its ruling on imposition of temporary measures in regard to the Russian Federation before May 2017.

The deputy minister has told this to the press, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

At that she did not express her vision of details of such ruling - whether it will support Ukraine or not.

The deputy minister said that the whole world is currently on Ukraine's side.

She added that Russia must respond for its actions and the ICJ is the only authority to bring Russia to justice.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Ukraine has handed over to the International Court of Justice (IJC) the whole record of diplomatic notes it has exchanged with representatives of the Russian Federation and all copies of negotiations with them since the very start of the military aggression.

Olena Zerkal noted that on Wednesday, Ukraine completed the first phase of delivering its evidence to the Court.

The deputy foreign affairs minister says that the Russian side is obviously concerned over the course of the hearings at the IJC and cannot provide rebuttal for accusations of the Ukrainian side.

Zerkal also denied a claim by Russia saying that Ukraine had violated established procedures while filing the appeal to the IJC.

Besides, she refused to predict when the Court will start considering the Ukraine's appeal per se, however, noted that usually the IJC gives a plaintiff with 6-8 months for preparation of a memorandum.

On March 6, the IJC started hearings within the framework of the Ukraine's appeal against the Russian Federation.
