  • In the intro, mention the Russian invasion of Ukraine and a subsequent application by Ukraine in CJI against Russia accusing it of falsely claiming that Ukrainians are committing genocide in their territory and using this untruthful premise to start an illegal war.
  • In the body mention the reasoning given by the CJI for order and its significance. First, CJI agreed that the subject matter falls under the convention, next CJI agreed about the preservation of rights of the parties, third the possibility of irreparable harm to Russia. Next mention that the decision is binding on Russia and by continuing the war it is violating international law.
  • Conclude by mentioning that International law, even if not sufficient, is necessary to maintain global order.
