In four days of hearings at the International Court of Justice, known as the World Court, Ukraine has been presenting its case against Russia under international treaties against discrimination and the financing of terrorism.

According to a report, Dmitry Storozhuk, deputy general prosecutor, announced today at a briefing that Ukrainian investigators had determined that a Russian citizen whose last name was Sinelnikov, who had helped organized armed attacks on Ukraine and led militants himself, along with a Ukrainian citizen whose last name was Shpakov, were responsible for the attack on a civilian van that led to 11 civilian deaths.

In January 2017, Ukraine submitted its suit against Russia for mistreatment of Crimean Tatars and other minorities in Russian-occupied Crimea, and for funding illegal armed groups of separatists. Currently, Ukraine seeks an injunction from the judge ordering Russia to cease its violations, pending examination of the case, which may take years.
