Britain, US condemn “reckless” Russia’s behaviour at UNHRC

Britain and the US criticized Russia’s behavior in Syria at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Wednesday (March 14), after the former accused Russia of using a military grade nerve agent in an attempt to kill a former Russian spy, Reuters reported.
British ambassador to the UN said, “Either Russia has deliberately flouted the rules-based international order, or it has lost control of its own chemical weapons.”
“In Syria, the Council has repeatedly addressed violations carried out or backed by Russia, resulting in thousands of deaths and untold human suffering,” he added.
First secretary to US mission in Geneva, Jason Mack, confirmed saying, "From Ukraine to Syria and now the United Kingdom, Russia continues to be an irresponsible force of instability in the world, acting with open disregard for the sovereignty of other states and the lives of those living within their borders."
Britain was braced for a showdown with Russia on Wednesday after a midnight deadline set by Prime Minister Theresa May expired without an explanation from Moscow about how a Soviet-era nerve toxin was used to strike down a former Russian double agent.
May has said it was "highly likely" Russia was behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter but Russia, which denied any involvement, said it was not responding to May’s ultimatum until it received samples of the chemical.
