As the chairs of the ICC we would like to cordially welcome all the delegates, but especially those participants who will be taking part in the trials conducted by the ICC.
As we know, the topic this year’s conference is Rising to the challenge: achieving equity and security. And that is what ICC stands and aims for – protecting and fighting for the justice.
This year, we would like to focus on the case of annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is going to be prosecuted on the charges of breaking the law of the Rome Statute.
As the revolution called Euromaidan started in February 2014 the Ukrainian president Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych was removed from power. Vladimir Putin, backed by pro-russian separatists, conducted the annexation of Crimea. That led to serious armed confilct in Ukraine. During this conference we would like to review this case, having listened to the testimonies of both sides, resulting in a fair and unbiased verdict.
We hope that the deliberation will turn out fruitful and enriching for every participant. It will be an unforgetable experiance both for you, and us. Nevertheless, please bear in mind that the ICC Comitee works on different rules of procedures than other committees and and has nothing to do with the country’s policies you are representing during StetiMUN 2016.
Should there arise any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
