Ukraine Initiate Arbitration Against the Russian Federation under UNCLOS

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, “[o]n 14 September 2016, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine officially served the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation with a notification of arbitration and statement of claim instituting ad hoc arbitral proceedings under Annex VII of UNCLOS”.

For more information, see here.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has told a news briefing that the Russian Federation had not, by then, received any notification from Kiev on that matter. That statement can be found here.
