What's good for the Palestinians is good for Ukraine.

The court mostly sided with Russia in that case, rejecting most of Ukraine's requests and saying that Moscow had only failed to investigate possible breaches of terrorism financing law.

Why 'the court mostly sided with Russia in that case, rejecting most of Ukraine's requests' ?

If so why it's "a "victory for Ukraine"? What do the tutorials tell about this?

The difference between the coverage of two ICJ rulings about a week apart is striking.

Somehow the Israeli regime wasn't 'dragged to court', and despite the court ignoring all the claims by the Israeli regime, it wasn't a blow to it.

And the folks claiming that Israel was somehow exonerated are taking the decision the otherway in the case of Russia

Didn't the ICJ toss their previous case this week?

Why isn't Zelensky charging Russia with genocide?

Why isn't Zelensky asking the court to examine the so-called Bucha massacre?

The ICJ ruled Wednesday in a separate case filed by Ukraine alleging that Russia financially backed separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine for years before the invasion.

The court mostly sided with Russia in that case, rejecting most of Ukraine's requests and saying that Moscow had only failed to investigate possible breaches of terrorism financing law.

Interesting stuff. Because they saw the facts.

This court should order a vote to be held in the Donbas.

This court should order a vote to be held in the Donbas.

Actually they already did. They followed the facts and found that:

as soon as the time comes to divide Ukraine, all the contending countries will declare themselves, forgetting everything in the world. They won’t even remember about some kind of trial. We are waiting, - there is very little left

Yep, and vice versa , so when can we expect Joe to start sending weapons to Palestinians to defend themselves against the IDF aggression and Gaza civilian massacre?

And I suppose you think Russia would honor that? I mean there could be an independent UN mission in Donbas right now if Russia hadn't gone fascist and annexed.

Not everyone is as savage as Russia. I guess it has to do with how that country was raised.

The Kyiv government is now reduced to Lawfare.

Wonder who is underwriting the lawyer bills and what they run to. Let one guess...

Lol you wish. At least we've no established the Russian narrative of Ukraine commiting a genocide is pure and putrid nonsense.

@JJE,

Wishful thinking on your part comrade.

Looks like warmonger Putin is losing in the courts and on the battlefield.

UN's big fat joke. Reminds me of Ukrainian Governance, no new troops mobilized in their Parliament, but they need more weapons & cash, lots of corrupt biz chances!
