"Evidence of an aggressive war against Ukraine and financing of terrorism has also been submitted to the International Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Investigation of the circumstances of the Ilovaisk tragedy has unquestioningly established violations of the Russian Federation and the high military command of the agreements on the provision of a humanitarian corridor for the withdrawal of the Ukrainian military from the encirclement in the Ilovaisk area," Mammedov said in an interview with Radio Liberty.
