For the resolution voted eleven members of the UN Security Council, China, Venezuela and Angola abstained. Russia, being one of the five permanent Council members, have vetoed.
"we need to take into account the political situation. It's no secret that the political standoff here on the person, and valaisiana other UN security Council members, with the exception of China, speaks about the bias and holding pressure on the Russian Federation. With her logical side was the veto.(Russia's envoy to the UN Vitaly) Churkin said about the fact that Russia was removed from the process of creating solutions, Not provided the opportunity to review existing materials, Not allowed to make suggestions for the resolution. There is a certain bias, " explained Labin.
