UNITED NATIONS, October 7. /TASS/. Russia cannot admit endorsement of the French-authored draft resolution on Aleppo in its current form, the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin told reporters on Friday.
The diplomat assumed that the real objective of the document was to make Russia use its right to veto even though the French diplomats assured him initially they did not have any such intentions.
"I don’t see how we could possibly admit adoption of that resolution," he said.
