Kyslytsya reacts to Russia's non-election to the International Court of Justice

It is a crushing defeat for Russia that the representative of the aggressor country, Kirill Gevorgyan, was not elected as a judge of the International Court of Justice. He lost to the representative of Romania, Bogdan Aurescu.

This was the comment of Ukraine's Permanent Representative to the UN, Serhiy Kyslytsya, in a commentary to the EP on Friday, November 9. He said that in general, this vote showed that Moscow still retains a small influence on the structure as Gevorgyan received 77 votes.

This is not a small figure but the terrorist state has once again failed.

The Ukrainian diplomat reminded that a judge from Russia will not be represented at the International Court of Justice for the first time since 1946.

The voting in the General Assembly was a fiasco for Russia in the historical retrospective of the Organization, Kyslytsya emphasized.

The representative of the Ukrainian state added that Moscow received 83 votes in the elections to the UN Human Rights Council held in October. Although this was not enough to be elected, it "was not insignificant in terms of assessing the world's readiness to fight for human rights."

Kyslytsya said that the aggressor country was a complete failure in the UN Security Council voting. As a permanent member of the body, Moscow has special powers and influence over other members, but it did not help Russia receive more than 5 votes out of 15.

For comparison, the United States of America received from 12 to 14 votes.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, it was the first time that a representative of the Russian Federation was not elected to the International Court of Justice. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky noted that the organization had begun to cleanse itself of the malicious influence of the terrorist state.
