The present work tries to analyze the role of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Ukrainian crisis. What kind of intervention can be done to the crime of genocide based as a precautionary appeal and with the aim of avoiding litigation? The practice already from the first months has shown that the dispute did not stop with a question to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), a body not competent to resolve the dispute.

The jurisprudential history of the ICJ will shed light on the positions held by the first steps of the ICJ in relation to the controversy.
