Russia on Wednesday said a decisive battle was in progress in Syria and rejected a Western-backed U.N. resolution on the crisis as it would mean taking sides with a revolutionary movement.
"A decisive battle is in progress in Syria. Adopting the resolution would mean outright support of a revolutionary movement. And if we are talking about a revolution then the United Nations has nothing to do with it," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters in reference to the armed opposition to President Bashar Assad.
