      Russia Again Vetoes Security Council Resolution on Syria


      Russia has once again blocked a UN Security Council statement that would have expressed outrage at deadly airstrikes by Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's forces and condemned the use of missiles and "barrel bombs" in towns, Reuters reported Wednesday.

      Russia, a staunch Assad ally, opposed a similar statement on December 19 that would have condemned attacks by Syrian government troops on civilians.
