"[…] the president of the court will decide on further measures of the case, namely how it will proceed and how much time we'll be given to prepare a basic memorandum where we must present all evidence in detail, including the mental element in this case," Zerkal said on Friday. The Deputy Minister was also positive about the court's recent conclusions. "The court has really backed Ukraine, and this is [...] especially important in view of the fact that the matter concerns one of the permanent members of the UN Security Council," she added. As reported, the ICJ on April 19 announced its conclusions to partially meet Ukraine's request for provisional measures vis-à-vis Russia. All the approved measures concern the Convention on the Elimination of All Racial Discrimination. At the same time, the court issued an order refusing to satisfy Ukraine's request on introducing provisional measures against Russia under the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism. Ukraine instituted proceedings against Russia in January, with regard to the support for eastern Ukraine separatists, and on human rights violations against ethnic Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians in Russia-occupied Crimea.
