Seven Russian vetoes in the UNSC that covered up mass atrocities in own interests | Infographic


Infographics, Politics

Over the past 24 years Russia has used its veto power to block decisions of the UN Security council in its own interests. It has used its veto to facilitate its own occupation of Georgia and Crimea, blocked the creation of an international tribunal to investigate those guilty of shooting down MH17. It has vetoed to defend the atrocities condemning the governments of Myanmar, Zimbabwe and, repeatedly, Syria (supported by vetoes of Russia’s Security Council ally China).

In this infographic, we explore the most striking Russian vetoes in the UNSC over the last 10 years.
