The court of justice has introduced measures to protect the Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians in Crimea
Moscow. April 19. INTERFAX.RU — international court of justice (the Hague) has made the decision on the introduction of measures to protect and ensure the rights of Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars in Crimea in the framework of the Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination, but these measures are not similar to those requested by Ukraine.
“I would like to remind that Russia should meet its obligations in accordance with the Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination. The court considers that in the Crimea the Russian Federation should refrain from imposing restrictions on Crimean Tatars and their communities, preserve their institutions, including Parliament. In addition, the Federation must ensure the availability of education in the Ukrainian language”, — said at the hearing by its President, Ronnie Abraham.
However, he added: “In this case, having considered the interim measures that applied to Ukraine, and the terms of this case, the court decides what measures should be determined, must not be identical to those requested Ukraine”.
In addition, the UN international court ordered Russia and Ukraine to refrain from any action which might aggravate the present dispute.
