Russia Refuses to Sign IAEA Annual Report, Says Sevastopol not in Ukraine

Russia has refused to sign off on the U.N. nuclear watchdog's annual report because the document lists a nuclear reactor near Crimea's Sevastopol as being in Ukraine, two diplomats present at the meeting told Reuters on Monday.
Russian annexed Crimea last year. Most of the international community still considers it part of Ukraine.
One Western diplomat said, Ukraine protested against Russia's move at the International Atomic Energy Agency's quarterly board of governors meeting.
According to the second diplomat, At least eight other countries said they were unwilling to accept Russia's refusal, citing a 2014 U.N. resolution confirming the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
