Terrorists Shell Aleppo Hospital, Killing Russian Medics, as Russia & China Veto UNSC Resolution

[ Ed. note – According to the description posted with the video above, “two Russian medical specialists were killed” when terrorists shelled a mobile military hospital. The article below, posted probably earlier than the video, reports that one of the medics killed was a woman.

Meanwhile, a showdown of sorts took place today at the UN Security Council as both Russia and China vetoed a resolution calling for a seven-day ceasefire in Aleppo. You can go here, if you have the time and inclination, to watch an hour and thirty-one minute video of the debate. Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said Egypt, New Zeland and Spain were “shamelessly pressured” by the West into introducing the measure in the Security Council.

RT reports that 11 Security Council Members voted in favor of the measure, with Russia, China, and Venezuela voting against and Russia and China casting vetoes. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov articulated the obvious when he said that the ceasefire “would surely be used for regrouping and rearming the extremists and would slow down the liberation of eastern Aleppo from them.”

Lavrov also has announced that talks between himself and John Kerry on the withdrawal of militants from Eastern Aleppo are slated to begin Tuesday. He said the talks will attempt to establish concrete routes and the timing of withdrawal, and that any groups refusing to leave would then be treated by Russia as terrorists. ]

  1. Great post. Thank you. R.I.P the intrepid Russian medics. The bad guys are losing, and that makes them even “badder.” Viva Syria! Viva Russia! Viva China! Viva Venezuela!

    I don’t suppose Egypt, New Zealand, and Spain might feel shame for their action inasmuch as they are “shameless.”

    • You have to wonder how many millions, or maybe even billions, of US tax dollars have been squandered in this effort to overthrow the president of Syria. Hopefully if the enterprise ends in failure, as it appears to be headed towards now, it will help bring this bloody and brutal US practice of overthrowing other governments to an end.

  2. After that US backed atrocity,I bet Russian officials probably used a few choice cuss words in Private at the US cease fire proposal ,what a Insult, I guess Kirby got his wish ..
