Proposed by the Russian side, the document was also not adopted. It was supported only by six countries: Russia itself, Kazakhstan, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea and China; Kuwait and Côte d’Ivoire abstained.
US representative Nikki Haley commented on the difference in the failed documents: “Our resolutions are similar, but there are important differences. The key point is that our resolution guarantees that any investigations will be truly independent. And the Russian resolution gives Russia a chance to choose investigators, and then evaluate their work, “ she said, adding that ” there is nothing independent in this . “
