Rubric: PRESSING ISSUES OF MODERN LEGAL BRANCHES

Annotation: In the Legal Science the materials of the United Nations Special Commission that acknowledged the crimes committed by the terrorist organization “Islamic State” (ISIS) against the Yazidis of Iraq as genocide are analyzed for the first time. The necessity of an affirmative response from the UN Security Council to the appeal of the Commission for the referral of the Yazidis case to the International Criminal Court or establishment, in this regard, of the Special Tribunal is examined. The international solidarity towards the question concerning the combat against the ISIS must be fortified by the same solidarity towards the question concerning protection of the ISIS’ victims. The military and diplomatic relief executed by Russia and the antiterrorist coalition of states led by the USA to support the Yazidis paramilitary groups that fight against the ISIS is offered as the most effective means of restraint on continuing genocide of the Yazidis, and, on the whole, on carving up an ethno-religious map of the region.
