President Putin should defend the special military operation at a special international law forum

... but not in 2022, after so many terrible things happened in Ukraine. For Putin, this alternative argumentation is interesting with respect to an ongoing ICJ case: in an attempt to debunk Putin’s legal justification, Ukraine filed a complaint against Russia in the ICJ, for false accusation of genocide.
