(Worthy News) - Russia vetoed Tuesday a US-drafted resolution that would have extended by a year an investigation of who is behind chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

It was the ninth time Russia has used its veto power at the Security Council to block action targeting its Syrian ally.

Russia opposed renewing the mandate of the joint UN-Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) panel before it releases a report on a sarin gas attack in Khan Sheikhun expected on Thursday. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. It is understandable if the US drafts a resolution Russia or Syria or Iran is going to Veto it. What I don't understand is why the US, Canada and other freedom loving countries are members. I believe the UN is a demonic organization and will only support what the devil thinks he can get away with. The UN should definitely be moved to a different country.

  2. Oh ........ the poison gas was made in the U.S. and delivered by the CIA.
    Oh, maybe Putin should have let the investigation continue.
