U.N. court denies request to act against Russia in Ukraine

The United Nations' International Court of Justice on Wednesday declined a request by Ukraine for the world body to effectively cut off Russian supplies of funding and weapons to the region, which has seen constant fighting between Kiev government forces and pro-Russian rebels for more than three years.


Judges on the court voted to deny the request to label Russia as a sponsor of terrorism, and stop it from supporting rebel fighters, due to a lack of evidence.

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. Moscow has denied backing rebel forces in the region.

The court did, however, approve a provisional order for Russia to respect the Tatars' ethnic rights in the Crimean Peninsula and abide by international laws.
