International Court of Justice: Arguments heard over Russia’s genocide claims

Judges at the International Court of Justice are hearing arguments from Russia and Ukraine about Moscow's claims that it launched its invasion to prevent genocide. Ukraine brought the case to the United Nations' highest court, days after Russia invaded last year. Kyiv accuses Moscow of abusing international law by falsely alleging genocide in eastern Ukraine.
Russia wants the case to be thrown out, and objects to the court's jurisdiction. Geoffrey Nice joins us from Canterbury in the United Kingdom. He is Emiritus Gresham Professor of Law and the Former Lead Prosecutor of Slobodan Milosevic for the United Nations at the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia. Subscribe to our channel
