 Ukraine plans to launch legal proceedings against Russia for violating United Nations convention with its annexation of Crimea, the Moscow Times quoted Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin as saying.

 
Klimkin said that Ukraine plans to file a case in international courts “relating to Russia’s violation of UN maritime law" in the waters surrounding Crimea, the Interfax news agency reported.
 
Border guards have recorded the fact of violation of global maritime norms in Ukraine's exclusive economic zone by the Russian Federation.
 
“We will soon prove that Russia also violated its responsibilities under the convention on the ban on financing terrorism. We will prove that what is happening in temporarily occupied Crimea is complete discrimination,'' Klimkin said.
 
"In the coming weeks we will start to work on proving that Russia has violated all their obligations under the Terrorist Financing Convention in the frames of arbitrage. We are going to prove that what is happening today in the territory temporarily occupied Crimea is a real racial discrimination," - stressed the Minister.
