The UN Security Council on Saturday soundly rejected Russia’s call to condemn the United States and its allies for striking Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.

Russia, China and Bolivia voted in favor of Moscow’s emergency resolution, well short of the nine “yes” votes Syria’s main ally needed.

 The Security Council is comprised of five permanent members – the US, France, Great Britain, China and Russia – and 10 rotating members.

Those current members are Bolivia, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, and Sweden.
