Russia vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Wednesday that sought to set up a special tribunal to try those responsible for shooting down flight MH17 over Ukraine.
Eleven of the 15 members of the Security Council voted in favor of the resolution, which had been drafted by Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine.
Russia exercised its veto. Angola, China and Venezuela abstained. The Security Council session began with a moment's silence in honor of the 298 people killed in the July 2014 disaster.
