THEHAGUE (Reuters) – The United Nations’ top court for disputes between states on Friday said it has jurisdiction to hear a case filed by Ukraine against Russia over Moscow’s alleged support of pro-Russian separatists in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

In reading a summary of the ruling, Presiding Judge Abdulqawi Yusuf said conditions had been met for the case to be heard in full and rejected Russian objections to the court’s jurisdiction.
