Russia breached almost 400 treaties of international law since the start of war
According to Ukraine’s Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets, since 2014, when Russia unleashed aggression against Ukraine, the invaders have violated a total of almost 400 treaties of international law, including the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
The Verkhovna Rada Commissioner noted that in 2017, Ukraine filed with the UN International Court of Justice a lawsuit against the Russian Federation, in particular, regarding the violation of the said Convention. The charges brought against Russia relate to a policy of discrimination against ethnic Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars in the temporarily occupied Crimea, Lubinets said.
