Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vitali Churkin announced his country opposed a West-drafted UN resolution on Syria. In an interview on Monday on Russia Today, Churkin said “The draft resolution on Syria is completely non-objective and it envisages pressure on the Syrian authorities only.” He also said his country feared radical Syrian elements coming to the forefront in any move to topple the government.

In a recent message to Syrian President Bashar al Assad, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev asked for an immediate stop to violence. Moscow also urged for dialogue, stating it vital for restoration of order in the country.
