KYOTO CLIMATE TREATY IS SIGNED BY PUTIN

President Vladimir Putin has signed a bill confirming Russia's ratification of the Kyoto Protocol, the Kremlin said today, clearing the way for the global climate pact to come into force early next year.

Both houses of parliament last month ratified the protocol, which aims to stem global warming by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. Putin signed the bill on Thursday, the Kremlin said.
