Why Russia Blocked UNSC Resolution on Idlib?

Russia did not support the UN Security Council draft resolution on the situation in Syria’s north-east initiated by Kuwait, Germany and Belgium, the Russian Permanent Mission to the UN said in a statement.

“We do not agree that the situation in the north-east can be considered separately from other regions in Syria,” the mission said. “Moreover, the draft document completely ignored the fact that Idlib is controlled by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group,” the mission added.

“We regret that our colleagues in the UN Security Council have chosen a biased approach to the developments in Syria. The so-called humanitarian ‘troika’ did not express concerns when the coalition illegaly operating in Syria destroyed Khadjin or Baguz. The ‘liberated’ Raqqa still lies in ruins,” the mission noted.
