    The International Court of Justice will rule on whether to order Russia to take immediate steps to halt what Georgia calls ethnic cleansing in the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

    The ruling is scheduled for Wednesday.  

    Moscow and Tbilisi fought a five-day war in August for control of the regions and Russia has recognized both as independent states, angering Georgia, which says they are part of its territory.

    In the immediate aftermath of the fighting, Georgia appealed to the U.N.’s highest court to impose emergency measures to stop what Tbilisi says is a 20-year campaign of racial discrimination by Russia and its separatist allies against ethnic Georgians in the regions.
