That's because your lists aren't properly nested, i suppose. The inner <ul>
should be inside <li></li> tags, not between them. And when you remove the
closing </li>, it looks to the validator like <ul> is indeed inside <li>'s,
since the closing tag is optional, and it validates.

.....
should be:
<ul> <!-- outer list-->
    <li> bla bla
         <ul> <!-- inner list -->
            <li> bla bla </li>
            <li> bla bla </li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li> bla bla bla </li>
</ul>
