Russia Condemns NATO Strikes on Libya

Russia's Foreign Ministry has slammed NATO's recent fatal airstrikes on Libya, calling the raids on the capital of Tripoli a violation of the UN Security Council resolutions.

"It is another major deviation from the UN Security Council's Resolutions 1970 and 1973," Russian Foreign Ministry's envoy on human rights, Konstantin Dolgov, said in a statement, referring to NATO's Tuesday night raid which killed 19 people and injured over 130.

The Russian Foreign Ministry added that the raids would not prevent military confrontation in the country, and that it would only lead to more violence against civilians, Xinhua reported.'
