Ukraine has filed a Memorandum against Russia to the International Court of Justice in The Hague, in which it collected evidence of support of terrorism by the aggressor state. This was reported by President Petro Poroshenko on Facebook.

"It is very symbolic that the International Court of Justice decided on June 12 - Russia Day - to file a Memorandum on the case of Ukraine against Russia on the violation of International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. The Memorandum against Russia is an important stage in proving that the Russian Federation is responsible for all its abusive practices", - the report said.

He noted that the position of the International Court of Justice will provide an appropriate assessment of the actions of the Russian Federation and will not allow us to evade responsibility using regular manipulation and shouting "it is not us" and "we are not there".

According to him, the Memorandum contains an extraordinary, as for the practice of the Court, amount of evidence. "This is done to ensure that no one doubts that Russia has committed abusive practices and must bear responsibility for it. There is still a lot of work to bring the truth, but the truth is on our side and therefore, we will defend it and protect it with all appropriate means", - the head of state summed up.
