Estonia Denounces Russia's Genocide In Ukraine Before Int'l Court of Justice

Estonia has submitted its declaration denouncing Russian genocide in Ukraine before the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

“Russia’s aggression on the pretext of preventing and punishing genocide has seriously undermined the meaning of such a horrible crime as genocide,” said Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu, Kyiv Independent reported.

Ukraine filed a lawsuit at the ICJ in The Hague nearly seven months ago and urged it to rule that Russia used “genocide” as a pretext for invasion. Countries that have also filed a declaration are the US, UK, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, France, New Zealand, Romania and Sweden.

European Council President Charles Michel said in an address to the UN General Assembly that the European Union (EU) should demonstrate an “openness to those who don’t want to be instrumentalized by the Kremlin.”

Michel noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “partial mobilization” announcement on Sept. 21 has changed the dynamic of war, Politico reported.

In an address to the UN General Assembly, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear weapon threats are “much more reminiscent of medieval barbarism than of Russian greatness.”

He added: “Everyone in this room, every single country, will one day be asked ‘What did you do to stop this? What did you do to protect the people of Ukraine? Did you look away, or did you act?’” He concluded that “there is no room for neutrality” in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
