THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The United Nations’ top court has rejected large parts of a case filed by Ukraine alleging that Russia bankrolled separatist rebels in the country’s east a decade ago and has discriminated against Crimea’s multiethnic community since its annexation of the peninsula. The International Court of Justice ruled Wednesday that Moscow violated articles of two treaties — one on terrorism financing and another on eradicating racial discrimination. But the court rejected far more of Kyiv’s claims under the treaties. It rejected Ukraine’s request for Moscow to pay reparations for attacks in eastern Ukraine blamed on pro-Russia Ukrainian rebels, including the July 17, 2014, downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 that killed all 298 passengers and crew.
