On June 10, the UN Security Council voted 14-0, with Russia abstaining, to approve a U.S.-drafted resolution promoting the Biden Administration’s proposed ceasefire agreement between Hamas and Israel. The resolution, however, is just another component of the Biden Administration’s propaganda drive to ensure that there’s no solution to the Israeli war on Gaza other than a “solution” imposed by the U.S., and therefore will likely amount to very little.

Russian Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia said as much in a statement after the vote. “We have always viewed positively any diplomatic efforts on the ground aimed at a ceasefire with parameters to be acceptable to both sides,” he said. “At the same time, we have a number of questions about the American draft resolution, in which the Council welcomes a certain ‘deal’ whose final contours are still unknown to anyone save the mediators themselves. The information circulating in open sources is quite contradictory. The sponsors have not informed the Security Council of the details of the agreements. We are essentially being offered to buy ‘a pig in a poke.’”
