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.

Of course, in this current form this protocol can't be ratified.
