Russia Reiterates Disapproval of Western Handling of Syria

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov again expressed his country’s disapproval of sanctions against Syria, and was vociferous in Russia’s opposition to foreign military intervention.

“We cannot support any proposals for sanctions imposed unilaterally without any consultation with Russia and China … to be consecrated in hindsight by a Security Council decision,” Lavrov said Wednesday after discussions with his Turkish counterpart.

In October 2011, Russia and China vetoed a Security Council resolution that condemned the Assad regime and would have served as a precursor to sanctions.

Russia continues to sell military equipment to Syria, despite Western calls not to arm the regime in its  11-month crackdown of dissidents.
