MH17 disaster: Russia vetoes draft UN resolution for international tribunal
July 30 , 2015
Russia was the only member at the 15-nation UN Security Council to oppose the resolution. While 11 members backed the resolution, China, Venezuela and Angola abstained.
The plane traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed over eastern Ukraine last July, killing all 298 passengers and crew on board.
Western nations have accused pro-Russia rebels of shooting down the aircraft, a claim the separatists deny.
