UN court rejects Ukraine request to block rebel funding

ICJ To Issue Ruling On Ukraine Case Against Russia

Kyiv filed a lawsuit against Russian Federation at the ICJ for intervening militarily in Ukraine, financing separatists that Kyiv labels "terrorists", the shooting down of civilian passenger plane MH17 in July 2014, and discriminating against Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians in the annexed peninsula.

Wednesday's ruling was preliminary decision aimed at preserving Ukraine's rights while the full case makes its way through the court, a process likely to take years.

"Having considered the terms of the provisional measures requested by Ukraine and the circumstances of the case, the Court finds that the measures to be indicated need not be identical to those requested".

It called on the court's 16 judges to rule that "the Russian Federation bears global responsibility" for "acts of terrorism committed by its proxies in Ukraine". Moscow "must. refrain from maintaining or imposing limitations in the ability of the Crimean Tatar community to conserve its representative institutions", the court ruled. The judges said Russian Federation must also ensure there are no limits on access to Ukrainian language education on the peninsula.

Moscow has mobilized military forces along its border with Ukraine, but there has not been any direct connection between the Kremlin and the pro-Russia rebel groups fighting across the border.
