Russian president, Vladimir Putin has snubbed the hearing of UN court over a case of commiting war crime brought against him by the Ukrainian president Zelensky.
Recall, Ukraine had seek an emergency order from ICJ to halt hostility on its territory, noting that Putin falsely applied genocide law to justify its invasion in the country.
Al Jazeera reports that hearings began at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, the Netherlands, on Monday without legal representation for Russia.
Ukrainian envoy Anton Korynevych said, “The fact that Russia’s seats are empty speaks loudly. They are not here in this court of law: They are on a battlefield waging an aggressive war against my country,”
He however, charged, ” Russia to “lay down your arms and put forward your evidence.”
