Russia: Syrian War Crime Investigation A PR Stunt


Russia announced that it will veto the United Nations (UN) Security Council’s recommendation to hand over the Syrian war crime investigation to the International Criminal Courts. The recommendation, filed by France and supported by almost 60 countries, will be up for discussion in meetings today (Thursday).

The Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, said that the whole investigation is one big public relations stunt, which will only hurt attempts to quell the crisis via diplomatic approaches.
