About this book


Written by a team of international lawyers from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean,
this book analyses some of the most significant aspects of the ongoing armed conflict
between the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

As challenging as this conflict is for the international legal order, it also offers lessons
to be learned by the States concerned, and by other States alike. The book analyses
the application of international law in this conflict, and suggests ways for this law’s
progressive development.

It will be useful to practitioners of international law working at national Ministries
of Defence, Justice, and Foreign Affairs, as well as in Parliaments, to lawyers of
international organizations, and to national and international judges dealing with
matters of public international law, international humanitarian law and criminal law.
It will also be of interest to scholars and students of international law, and to historians
of international relations.

Sergey Sayapin is Assistant Professor in International and Criminal Law at the School
of Law of the KIMEP University in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

Evhen Tsybulenko is Professor of Law at the Department of Law of the Tallinn University
of Technology in Tallinn, Estonia.
