The Senate is taking up legislation Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, that would end four-decade-old trade restrictions that are blocking U.S. businesses from enjoying the benefits of a more-open Russian market. The bill also imposes sanctions on Russian human rights violators. The last apparent hurdle to Senate action on the measure came with a decision to accept the House version of human rights legislation that was attached to the trade bill. It is still unclear when a final vote will take place. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko, File)
