Ukraine prepares memorandum against Russia for violating the Law of the Sea

Ukraine is preparing to file a memorandum with the UN International Tribunal on Russia's violation of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Ukrayinska Pravda reports that Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin shared this information with journalists.

"Since Russia has violated all its obligations, in particular under the Convention on the Law of the Sea, it should not only bear responsibility for this, it should pay for it," the Foreign Minister said.

He added that “all the nuances" were finally agreed upon during a meeting that was held the day prior. The memorandum is planned to be submitted on February 19. It is supposed to reflect the arguments in Ukraine’s lawsuit against Russia.
