Russia Vetoes UN Peacekeeping Mission in Georgia

This is horrible because the peacekeepers were doing such an awesome job (Ern looks up and to the left)

According to The Washington Post, yesterday, Russia vetoed a UN resolution authorizing the continued presence of nearly 150 UN peacekeepers in Georgia, abruptly ending a 15-year long U.N. effort to monitor Georgia's fragile border with the separatist territory of Abkhazia.

Seriously, it's like I knew the peacekeepers were there, but I'm still somehow surprised they were there. I mean, what have they been doing?
