Russia to veto new draft resolution on Syria

Gatilov said that the draft resolution, proposed by France, was “politicised” to pave the way for the use of violence against Damacus. Russia recently vetoed a draft resolution, proposed by Australia, Jordan, and Luxembourg, on humanitarian aid for Syria and has vetoed 3 UN resolutions on Syria since the conflict in the country flared up in 2011.
