Putin Affirms Support for Assad at the UN as Russia Damns Humanity

Russia vetoed yet another United Nations(UN) resolution on Syria before the Security Council(SC) yesterday, thus affirming Vladimir Putin's support for gassing perpetrator, Bashar al Assad, thus cementing Russia's isolation as it damns humanity to the likely of more chemical warfare.

The UN resolution proposed by France, the United Kingdom(UK) and the United States(US), sought to condemn last week's chemical gas(sarin) attack upon civilians at Khan Sheikhun, Syria. Some 80 civilians, including a number of children, died in that attack. According to the BBC-News, the draft measure also sought to demand that Damascus cooperate with international investigators.

But, Russia, for the eighth time since the start of the Syrian war in 2011, invoked its super veto before the SC to quash the resolution hereby protecting Assad once again and damning humanity to possible future chemical gas attacks in Syria, where hundreds of people, including children, have died in chemical attacks perpetrated by the Assad regime.

China, which has vetoed six similar Syrian resolutions in the past, abstained from yesterday's vote, so did Ethiopia and Kazakhstan. Ten empathetic nations: France, UK, US, Italy, Egypt, Japan, Senegal, Sweden, Ukraine and Uruguay, voted for the resolution, while Bolivia joined Russia in voting against it. As a permanent member of the SC, Russia's "no" vote automatically  vetoed the measure.

Russian support for the Assad regime amounts to an endorsement of crimes against humanity and future treatment of Russia should follow similar patterns meted out to war criminals just like Bashar al Assad and his regime.
