"Russia has declared its intention to scupper any attempt to force President Bashar al-Assad of Syria to step down, denouncing a push for a new United Nations security council resolution backed by the US and UK as 'meddling' that could lead to conflict and military intervention. In outspoken comments to a packed security council in New York, the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, was scathing about efforts led by the Arab League and backed by Washington, Paris and London to secure a new resolution that would call on Assad to stand aside."
