Kremlin disagrees that Russia has failed the world by blocking UN climate resolution

“The climate agenda is very important. We & nbsp; actively demonstrated this, (she) is discussed and & nbsp; in the & nbsp; government and & nbsp; at & nbsp; events led by the president. The resolution was completely unacceptable. Climate may not & nbsp; be the factor that limits countries in & nbsp; the right to & nbsp; development. And here the offer comes from & nbsp; countries that in & nbsp; their time very much harmed the climate and & nbsp; so they earned themselves a powerful industrial economy & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; Mr Peskov answered the & nbsp; corresponding question of Kommersant & nbsp; FM in the & nbsp; press call.

The presidential representative noted that & nbsp; would not & nbsp; agree & nbsp; with the & nbsp; statement that & nbsp; & nbsp; “ Moscow let everyone down. '' “ We are & nbsp; an active participant in this agenda '', & nbsp; & mdash; said & nbsp; he.

Earlier, Russia vetoed the & nbsp; draft resolution of Ireland and & nbsp; Niger in the & nbsp; UN Security Council. He invited political missions to take into account the impact of climate change on the & nbsp; security situation in their assessments and & nbsp; activities. India also voted against, China abstained.

The rest of the countries were in favor of & nbsp; the adoption of the resolution. Russia's Permanent Representative to the & nbsp; organization Vasily Nebenzya also stated that & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; for & nbsp; Russia, the widespread draft resolution on & nbsp; climate and & nbsp; security is unacceptable.
