Kremlin ‘Regrets’ Rejection by UN of Russia's Syria Resolution

The Kremlin regrets that the UN Security Council has rejected Russia's resolution on Syrian sovereignty, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported, citing presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“In this case only regrets can be expressed due to the fact that the draft resolution was not supported,” Peskov was quoted as saying by the news agency Saturday.

"Russia will continue its consistent, transparent and understandable policy of ensuring stability, territorial integrity and fight with terrorism in Syria," Peskov said, RIA Novosti reported.

The UN Security Council met Friday to discuss the situation on the Turkish-Syrian border. Moscow presented a draft resolution that calls to end cross-border shelling in Syria, in respect to the country’s sovereignty and halt plans for foreign ground invasion into Syria, RIA Novosti reported.

The resolution was rejected by six UN Security Council members, including the three countries with veto power — the United States, Britain and France.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
