    An American court has rejected an appeal by the Russian government, upholding a court ruling that Russia must return thousands of books to the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.

    The thousands books which sit at the heart of the dispute are mainly found in the Lenin Library, in Moscow; and cataloged as the Schneerson Collection.

    A ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Washington DC Circuit has ruled that Russia can finally no longer appeal the previous ruling and needs to return the books to the Chabad movement.

    It was further ruled that every day that passes without the observance of the court ruling requires the Russians to pay fifty thousand dollars, and during the trial days the fine has already climbed to about $200 million.
