The Hague, Netherlands:
The UN High Court said in a ruling on Wednesday that Ukraine had falsely justified its invasion by Russia on charges of genocide.
Kiev filed a lawsuit in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, demanding that the court end the offensive.
He accuses Russia of trying to justify its war illegally under an international convention, falsely accusing Ukraine of genocide in regions with Russian separatists.
Russia refused to attend a UN hearing on March 7.
The Hague tribunal said in a statement that it would announce its verdict on Wednesday at 15:00 GMT.
The ICJ was set up after World War II to resolve disputes between UN member states, mainly based on treaties and conventions.
Although his judgments are binding, he has no real means of enforcing them.
The case is being dismissed by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for its investigation into war crimes in Ukraine, as well as another court based in The Hague.
