Russia in the UN General Assembly did not support the US resolution against Hamas

Россия в Генассамблее ООН не поддержала резолюцию США против группировки ХАМАС

The U.S. call was not heard: the General Assembly voted against the initiative condemnation of Palestinian group Hamas, lobbing missiles at Israel.

Earlier it became known about the US plans to introduce a resolution calling to condemn the military actions of Hamas against the Jewish state, “threatening the civilian population”.

How come the resolution has not been adopted by a majority vote. Against the initiative were made by the Russian Federation. As well as a number of Arab countries and Latin America.

Recall that a number of the largest world powers, including USA, Japan, Canada, the EU recognized Hamas as a terrorist organization.

Russia, by contrast, considers the movement a legitimate and suitable to the partnership. Hamas members have repeatedly visited the capital of Russia as part of diplomatic missions.

By the way, the same Assembly has previously described Russia as “occupying power”, than a year ago signed the document by majority vote.
