UNITED NATIONS, October 8. /TASS/. The UN Security Council failed to approve the Russia-initiated draft resolution that calls for Jabhat al-Nusra militants ( terrorist organization banned in Russia) to leave eastern Aleppo to achieve cessation of hostilities.
Four countries voted for the document — Russia, China, Egypt and Venezuela. Angola and Uruguay abstained, while the remaining nine members of the UN SC, including Ukraine, and the UK, US and France that have the veto right, voted against it.
"The draft resolution is not passed as it did not get the required number of votes," said Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin, who is current president of the UN SC for October.
