The Head of State is confident that it is necessary to focus on the best way to outline Ukraine’s position in the court and define the country-aggressor. Poroshenko stressed that it will already create a mechanism of liability not for individuals, as Russia wanted, but for the state in general, which must bear responsibility for financing the terrorism and violating the UN Convention. The President also noted that the court had adopted a very important decision to sustain a case in the form of Russia’s obligation to make several steps: from the restoration of the Mejlis, the top representative body of the Crimean Tatars, to ensuring the right for Ukrainian citizens to study Ukrainian language in the occupied Crimea.
