"Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to withdraw Russia from the International Criminal Court, which rules on such grave charges as genocide and crimes against humanity. Putin's decree, published Wednesday on the Kremlin's website, comes a day after the U.N. General Assembly's human rights committee approved a resolution condemning Russia's 'temporary occupation of Crimea' and condemned Russia for rights abuses such as discrimination against some Crimeans."
