Russia was unable to convince the UN security Council to condemn the aggression in Syria.


The draft resolution proposed by Moscow to a vote at an emergency meeting of the UN security Council, has failed. His aim was to condemn the aggression by the US, UK and France against Syria.

Voted for 3 members of the security Council — Russia, China, and Bolivia, to 8 against, including the US, UK and France. Four other countries, including Kazakhstan, abstained.

At the same time, the President of France Emmanuel macron said that after the missile strikes of the three Western powers on Syria, the initiative for the further settlement of the conflict in this country should go to the UN Security Council. However the permanent members of the UN security Council has their own idea about how to improve the process. At the meeting, convened at Russia’s initiative, the conditions of settlement in Syria put the representatives of London, Paris and Damascus.

An emergency meeting was held on Saturday evening Moscow time at the initiative of Russia. On the convening of the security Council has declared Russian President Vladimir Putin in his statement in connection with the strikes on Syria. “Russia convenes emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the aggressive actions of the US and its allies,” — said in the text of the President’s announcement.

With the citation of the words of Vladimir Putin started his speech by Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia. He noted that the actions of the US and allies in Syria is disorderly conduct in international relations. The envoy also noted the fashion, established in recent years to shift the blame for what is happening in Syria on Russia, which “may not deter the dictator.” “And this at a time when Russia has done everything possible to Washington, London and Paris renounced the militaristic plans,” he said.

According to the Ambassador of the Russian Federation, no serious work on the Syrian resolution in the UN security Council is not conducted, the Western countries do not consult with Russia and undermine the credibility of the security Council.

The meeting participants discussed the Russian draft resolution. In a single-page text expressed outrage at the “aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic, United States and its allies that violate international law and the UN Charter”.

The document condemned the actions of Western countries and demanded that they “immediately and without any delay to stop the aggression” and to refrain from further military action in violation of the UN Charter. The draft also expressed concern that the strikes on Syria were inflicted at a time when the experts of the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons “have started work on collecting evidence of an unconfirmed chemical attack in Parliament.” Given that the positions of the participants of the meeting about the events in the Duma remained unchanged, and accordingly it followed their relationship to the Sabbath strikes on Syria, the resolution was obviously impassable, the result of the vote did not surprise anyone.

For its part, the U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said that Washington and its allies decided to attack Syria to prevent the use of chemical weapons in the future.

She stressed that the talks have failed and it is time to act. Mrs. Haley also once again blamed Russia for himataki who are alleged to have taken place in Syria.

“Russia’s veto was a green light to the Assad regime use of this barbarous weapons against the Syrian people, which was a flagrant violation of international law,” she said, referring to the blocking of Russia several resolutions on the mechanism to investigate alleged hematic in Syria. In Moscow believed these resolutions unbalanced, but it also advocated the formation of independent investigation mechanism. Nikki Haley promised that the U.S. will continue to exert pressure on Syria.
