"A key U.N. committee approved a resolution Tuesday condemning Russia's 'temporary occupation' of Crimea and reaffirming the United Nations' commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty over the Black Sea peninsula. Russia urged the General Assembly's human rights committee to vote against the resolution, but it was approved by a vote of 73-23 with 76 abstentions. The resolution is virtually certain to be adopted by a similar vote when it comes before the 193-member assembly next month." (11/15/16)
