On November 8, 2019, the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) found that it has jurisdiction to hear claims made by Ukraine against the Russian Federation alleging violations of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism (1999) (ICSFT) and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (1965) (CERD). In September, Russia raised preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court and the admissibility of Ukraine's application. As to the latter, the I.C.J. also ruled that Ukraine's claims were admissible. According to a press release issued by the Court, the Court determined that it has jurisdiction ratione materiae under Article 24(1) of the ICSFT and Article 22 of the CERD.
