Russia failed to win enough votes in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for its proposed resolution to investigate the Nord Stream explosions.
Details: Only three countries voted in favor of the proposed resolution, while 12 countries abstained.
This resolution needed at least nine “yes” votes to pass, but the United States could still veto it if it wanted to.
US Ambassador Robert Wood told the UN Security Council that the US had nothing to do with the attack on the “streams”. He also questioned why Russia would try to pass a resolution after most members of the UN Security Council expressed opposition to the idea.
Vasily Nebenzya, Russia’s ambassador to the UN, said the truth would not be revealed and called for accountability.
