Lieber Institute West Point: Ukraine Symposium – Cyber Neutrality, Cyber Recruitment, And Cyber Assistance To Ukraine

Lieber Institute West Point: Ukraine Symposium – Cyber Neutrality, Cyber Recruitment, And Cyber Assistance To Ukraine. “The war between Russia and Ukraine has given rise to many challenging international humanitarian law (IHL) questions. In this post I will focus on its cyber dimension and consider how certain customary law obligations imposed on belligerents and neutrals under the law of neutrality apply to the current armed conflict. More specifically I will examine how the obligation not to form corps of combatants or recruit on neutral territory (Article 4 Hague Convention V) applies to the formation of the Ukraine-supporting IT Army and how the obligation not to supply war material (Article 6 Hague Convention XIII which lays down a general customary law duty extending beyond naval warfare but also Article 2 Hague Convention V in relation to land warfare) applies to cyber assistance.”
