Since the annexation of Crimea in March 2014 and the breakout of armed conflict in eastern Ukraine shortly thereafter, Ukraine has been the focus of Europe’s main territorial conflict. The initial causes of this conflict and the extent to which it represents a civil war, with primarily domestic origins, or a foreign intervention by Russia remain intensely contested—although new evidence emerged in 2019 of Russia’s military involvement and political subversion in Ukraine.1 In November 2019 the International Court of Justice found unanimously that it has jurisdiction on the basis of antiterrorism and anti-discrimination treaties to hear a lawsuit filed by Ukraine against Russia for its support of pro-Russian separatists.2 In this chapter, the status of the armed conflict in 2019 is defined as a low-intensity internationalized, subnational armed conflict.3
