Poland has filed a declaration of intervention with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the case Ukraine against Russia in which Kyiv accuses Moscow of genocide during its invasion of Ukraine, the Polish Foreign Ministry has said.

Poland decided to file the declaration of intervention in the ICJ case “Allegations of Genocide under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Ukraine v. Russian Federation).

In a Twitter post, the ministry said. “The declaration constitutes an expression of Poland’s consistent policy of strong condemnation of all Russia’s illegal activities.”

“It is also an expression of support and solidarity with Ukraine,” the ministry added.

The Polish government on Tuesday approved the ministry filing the ICJ intervention.

In its complaint of February 26, 2022, Ukraine said Russia was falsely alleging that Ukraine had breached the convention and committed genocide against the Russian population living in Ukraine.

Russia used the pretext to launch a large-scale invasion of its neighbour on February 24.
