PCA: Arctic Sunrise Arbitration (Netherlands v. Russia)

On 4 October 2013, the Kingdom of the Netherlands instituted arbitral proceedings against the Russian Federation under Annex VII to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The dispute concerns the boarding and detention of the vessel Arctic Sunrise in the exclusive economic zone of the Russian Federation and the detention of the persons on board the vessel by the Russian authorities. By Note Verbale to the PCA dated 27 February 2014, the Russian Federation has indicated its “refusal to take part in this arbitration”. The award on Jurisdiction was just delivered and can be found here.
