A Singular Case: Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the International Court of Justice
In February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine claiming legal justification under the Geoncide Convention. Ukraine responded with filings in the International Court of Justice (ICJ). On March 7, 2022, the ICJ issued a ruling ordering the Russian Federation and its para-military forces to immediately suspend operations in the Ukraine.
