Russia vetoes UN resolution

Russia vetoes UN resolution deploring ‘aggression’ in Ukraine; China and India abstain.

Russia, as expected, vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Friday that “deplores in the strongest terms” the country’s “aggression” against Ukraine and demanded the immediate withdrawal of its troops.  Eleven of the council’s 15 members voted for the motion, which was co-written by the United States and Albania.  China, India, and the UAE abstained.
