This filing is in response to the declaration of intervention that was filed in this action on December 7, 2022, by Canada and the Netherlands.
Ukraine aims to demonstrate in these proceedings that Russia lacks a legal basis for intervening against and within Kyiv.
By doing this, Ottawa and Amsterdam reiterate their dedication to responsibility while highlighting the court’s crucial role in the amicable resolution of disputes.
The goal of Ukraine in these proceedings is “to establish that Moscow has no legal basis for engaging in action for and against Ukraine for the intent of punishing any genocide.”
“Canada and the Netherlands exercise their right to intervene in this case pursuant to Section 63(2) of the law of the Court in order to present to the court their interpretation of the pertinent provisions of the Genocide Convention.
