"Russia introduced a new version of its draft United Nations resolution on Syria that excluded Western proposals aimed at military intervention in the country, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said. ... Russia last week accused the U.S. and its European allies of seeking to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and a top Russian security official said NATO was preparing to establish a no-fly zone to protect Syrian rebels. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization and three alliance members denied any such plans." (01/17/12)
