Russia Threatened Countries Ahead Of UN Vote On Ukraine, Diplomats Say

 

 

Blackmail or diplomacy?

 

 

When Russia "persuades" other nations to vote (or not) in a particular way, such actions are described as threats and blackmail. When the United States (and the United Kingdom), use the same tactics, it is described as lobbying and diplomacy.
The arrogance and hypocrisy of the USA, the UK and the vast majority of the western media, is truly breathtaking.
