The annual report of the U.N. nuclear watchdog has been approved by its board of governors despite Russia's protests against it listing a nuclear site near Crimea's Sevastopol as being in Ukraine, according to a document seen by Reuters.Russia, which annexed Crimea last year, wanted the site linked to Russia, rather than Ukraine, in the International Atomic Agency's report, triggering opposition to such a move from other countries.The agency first got caught in the diplomatic crossfire over Crimea last year when Russia insisted its agreements with the Vienna-based IAEA also cover the annexed Black Sea peninsula.
