One of the motives for the court’s rejection of the position of judge Blair of the court of first instance, accepted the Russian side, was the fact that he did not listen to protect Ukraine under duress: “no country has the right to use its own violations of international law”, reports the Agency.

The Ministry also added that the fourth argument of Ukraine, as the other three grounds, should also be dismissed without trial.
