30th July 2015, Comments 0 comments

The EU said Thursday it regretted as a "setback" a Russian veto of a UN resolution for a tribunal to prosecute those responsible for downing Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine last year.

"We very much regret that the UN Security Council last night did not adopt due to the veto of Russia the resolution on the downing of MH17," European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic told reporters.
