Obama: Russians Also Responsible for Syrian Suffering

U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday criticized Russia for threatening to veto a UN resolution threatening sanctions against Syria, a measure to help millions in desperate need of humanitarian aid.

"It is not just the Syrians that are responsible" for the plight of civilians but "the Russians, as well, if they are blocking this kind of resolution," Obama declared.
