Can’t ratify Kyoto Protocol, Russia says

A senior adviser to President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Russia cannot ratify the Kyoto Protocol limiting greenhouse-gas emissions, dealing a mortal blow to the pact that required Russia's ratification to take effect. In its current form, the Kyoto Protocol places significant limitations on the economic growth of Russia, Mr. Putin's economic adviser, Andrei Illarionov, told reporters in the Kremlin. Of course, in this current form this protocol can't be ratified.
