UN Must Name Terrorists Responsible for Killing Civilians in Syria – Moscow

Sputnik – 21.11.2016

The United Nations must name those responsible for civilian killings among the ranks of the Syrian Army, but also among the terrorists fighting in Syria as well, Russian Deputy Ambassador to United Nations Vladimir Safronkov said at a meeting of the UN Security Council on Monday.

Earlier during the discussion, US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power named Syrian commanders whom the US government considers guilty of killing civilians and said they would be held accountable for their actions.

“You went as far as naming Syrian commanders and generals. But if you claim is to be unbiased, why don’t we hear the names of the terrorists as well? Who will deal with them?” Safronkov stated.

Sofronikov also noted that the UN Security Council must not be hypocritical on the matter of accountability in Syria.

He explained the UN Security Council must also not forget the golden standard of presumption of innocence, noting that it is up to a court to prove who is to guilty.
