(BBC) – Russia, unsurprisingly, has vetoed a draft UN resolution which would have deplored its invasion of Ukraine, after a debate at the Security Council.
Eleven members voted in favour of the resolution. India, China and the UAE abstained.
The resolution was doomed to fail because of Russia’s veto power as a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
During the debate, the US ambassador to the UN said the body had been created to try to prevent the kind of aggression facing Ukraine.
