UNITED NATIONS, November 3 (Sputnik) - Russia will still require clarifications from the United States and Ukraine regarding their military bio-laboratories across the Ukrainian territory, the Russian Deputy Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyanskiy told the UN Security Council members.
"Regardless of the outcome of the vote today, the questions to the United States and Ukraine is something that we do retain and the evidence which accompanied our complaints still require clarifications," Polyanskiy said on Wednesday.
Earlier, the Russian Federation submitted a draft resolution to the UN Security Council for consideration.
According to the document, the Security Council would decide "to form a commission consisting of all members of the Security Council to investigate the claims presented in the complaint of the Russian Federation against the United States and Ukraine regarding their compliance with obligations under the Convention in the context of the activities of biological laboratories on Ukrainian territory."
The UNSC did not adopt a resolution of the Russian Federation on establishing a commission to investigate military biological activities in Ukraine. Russia did not receive nine votes out of the 15-member body needed for the resolution to be adopted on Wednesday.
