422

On the 16th local time, the United Nations International Court of Justice (ICJ) asked Russia to immediately stop the military operation in Ukraine that began on February 24, 2022.

"The two sides should refrain from any action that would exacerbate or prolong the conflict and hinder its resolution," the International Court of Justice said.

The International Court of Justice ruled by a vote of 13-2 that Russia should immediately stop the special military operation in Ukraine. Joan Donoghue, president of the International Court of Justice, said: "The court finds that Ukraine has a reasonable right not to be affected by Russian military action," according to the British newspaper The Guardian.

Earlier, Ukraine filed a lawsuit against Russia at the United Nations International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands. The United Nations International Court of Justice held a hearing on the Ukraine v. Russia case on March 7.
