Public discussion «Crimea: Ukraine’s Lawfare vs Russia’s Warfare»

16March 2020

March 16, 2020, on the 6th anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Ukraine Forum Chatham House (Chatham House | 10 St James’s Square | London | SW1Y 4LE) will be hosting a public event on «Crimea: Ukraine’s Lawfare vs Russia’s Warfare».

Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula in 2014. Despite Russia’s interpretation of its rights to the peninsula, international law and the international community, including the UN General Assembly and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, regard Crimea as occupied and do not recognize any changes to its status. Against this backdrop, Ukraine has attempted to hold Russia accountable for the annexation through the international courts.

The panellists will assess the effectiveness of Ukraine’s reliance on lawfare as a means of holding Russia accountable for its alleged wrongs.
