Ukraine is taking Russia to court over the war. It accuses Moscow of attacking on false pretenses, by alleging genocide in two eastern regions of Ukraine.
Russia has not sent a delegation to the two-day hearing at the International Court of Justice. Kyiv wants the UN body to order an end to the invasion. Rulings issued by the court are binding, but there are no means to enforce its decisions. A provisional result is expected within days.
