Message The International Court of Justice is “biased” in Ukraine’s claim against Russia for genocide

This thesis was spread in pro-Kremlin media. The reports described how on September 18, 2023, the International Court of Justice in The Hague began a hearing on Ukraine's claim against Russia for violating the Genocide Convention. At the same time, Russian media are spreading messages that the court’s decision will be as “politicized” as possible, because Ukraine allegedly cannot collect “any evidence” of Russian crimes.

StopFake fact-checkers worked on the case and explained that the International Court of Justice itself is an independent institution that makes decisions without the involvement of third parties. In addition, a joint UN Commission operates to investigate and record Russian crimes. Moreover, the Commission has previously presented several reports describing systemic crimes by Russians against Ukrainians, in particular, premeditated murders, illegal detention, torture, rape and other types of sexual violence, as well as illegal transfers and deportations of protected persons and children. That is, the thesis that there is no evidence to prove the criminality of the Russian army is untrue. Thus, the propagandist authors are only trying to abdicate responsibility by calling various government institutions “incompetent” or “biased”. The Kremlin did the same thing, for example, when it denied the arrest of Putin by the International Criminal Court.

By the way, Detector Media analysts analyzed the manipulation, which stated that the UN investigation “found no evidence of genocide of Ukrainians” during the Russian-Ukrainian war. We explained the message that the so-called “evacuation” of Ukrainian children is “not a war crime”. We also disclosed a message that allegedly the UN Security Council “does not care about the suffering of the residents of Donbas”.
