U.S. Blocks Security Council Resolution Condemning Terror Attacks On Russian Embassy

By Brandon Turbeville

In a telling display, the United States has actually blocked a U.N. Security Council resolution that would have condemned the July shelling of the Russian embassy in Damascus by terrorist forces.

Terrorists launched a series of mortar attacks on the Russian embassy on July 24 and 25 of this year. Although terrorists have attacked the Russian embassy in the past, the recent attacks came during the backdrop of international peace talks and negotiations that heavily involved Russia as a key player.

Despite baying that it is the world’s leading soldier in the fight against terrorism on a daily basis, the U.S. and a number of other states actually blocked a U.N. Security Council resolution submitted by the Russians on grounds that they objected to the language used in the resolution.

Russian Press Secretary Fyodor Strzhizhovsky stated that the text proposed by Russia was “on standard wording regarding counter-terrorism and immunity of diplomatic missions.”

“With regret, we have to state that certain Security Council members have again refused to consider the Russian version of the project under the contrived pretext of the lack of evidence supporting the [version of the] terrorist nature of the attacks. It was suggested that all important provisions of the project should be deleted. Under these circumstances, the Russian side considers further work on this document useless,” he said.

“Alas, despite our partners’ statements of viewing anti-terrorism struggle as their priority, they repeatedly try to protect those who they probably think may be useful in their devastating geopolitical plans regarding Syria. It’s high time they demonstrated their commitment to a political settlement of the Syrian conflict by words, not deeds and tried to join forces in counteracting terrorism,” he added.

The attacks came from the Jobar region, where Western-backed terrorist proxies maintain a significant presence.

Regardless, the U.S. refusal to even agree to condemn terrorist attacks on the Russian embassy is extremely telling, signaling to the world that the U.S. or at least certain elements within the governing structure, have yet to give up on the attempt to not only destroy Syria but Russia as well.
