UN Security Council, US turn down request for Nord Stream inquiry, Moscow to continue bringing up Nord Stream blasts at UNSC

Russia has failed to get the United Nations Security Council to ask for an independent inquiry into explosions in September that ruptured the Nord Stream gas pipelines connecting Russia and Germany, spewing gas into the Baltic Sea.

Only Russia, China and Brazil voted in favour of the Russian-drafted text on Monday, while the remaining 12 council members abstained. A resolution needs at least nine votes in favour and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, the United States or the United Kingdom to pass.


 Denmark, Germany and Sweden will have to report to the UN about the findings of their investigations of Nord Stream sabotage attacks, First Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said on Monday.

"I’m sure we will come back to this issue at the Security Council and, in general, thanks to the Chinese and our efforts, it has all the chances to regularly come up at the council," the diplomat said on Telegram. "It will now be harder for Copenhagen, Stockholm and Berlin to pretend that everything is fine: They will have to report their findings, one way or the other, to the Security Council.".
