Moscow: Russia will not be able to take into account the decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the need to suspend a special military operation in Ukraine, there can be no agreement here, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
The ICJ previously ruled that Russia should immediately stop its military operation in Ukraine.
“No, we will not be able to take this decision into account. The international court has such a concept there — the consent of the parties. There can be no consent here. In this case, this is something that we cannot take into account,” Peskov said, answering whether Russia would take this decision into account.
The use of photos of Donetsk destruction and casualties by foreign news outlets and in a video presented by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky during his speech in the US Congress to illustrate the results of the Russian military operation is a “monstrous lie” and “forgery,” Peskov said.
“The facts of such fakes are well known in Russia. To a lesser degree, they want to pay attention [to these fakes] abroad. This is a monstrous lie. This is a monstrous forgery,” Peskov told reporters.
