The U.S. House of Representatives approved a measure that would graduate Ukraine from the Jackson-Vanik trade restrictions. The House voted Wednesday to lift sanctions on Ukraine, which were imposed in 1974 because of the Soviet Union’s emigration and human rights policies for Jews. The measure passed 417-2 Wednesday, after passing the Senate last November.
