What a thing to vote on during the holiday break!

/The United Nations General Assembly on Friday approved a resolution
that aims to create a new international convention on cybercrime./

/The Russian-sponsored resolution was approved by a 79-60 vote with 33
abstentions, //according to The Associated Press
<https://apnews.com/79c7986478e5f455f2b281b5c9ed2d15>//./

/The resolution was approved over objections from both the European
Union and the United States, as many fear language in the resolution
will allow for crackdowns on expression./
