    US 'blackmails' Russia over Syria resolution-Lavrov

    MOSCOW, September 22 (RIA Novosti) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Sunday the US is “blackmailing” Moscow over a UN resolution on Syria that could allow the use of force.
    "Our American partners are starting to blackmail us: if Russia does not support a resolution under Chapter VII in the UN Security Council, then we will stop the work in the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in the Hague," Lavrov said in a Channel One interview.
    Lavrov said “this is an absolute withdrawal from” what had been agreed with US Secretary of State John Kerry earlier this month – first the OPCW decision on Syria's chemical weapons and then the UN Security Council Resolution, but not under Chapter VII (action with respect to threats to the peace, breaches of the peace, and acts of aggression).
    “Our Western partners are nervous as they understand: if Chapter VII is mentioned, this is a chance to get a justification from the UN Security Council for their unilateral actions,” Lavrov said.

    So in essence Obama is saying "you are with us or you are against us". Sounds vaguely familiar.

    Its clients include the presidential administration, Russian government, Federation Council, State Duma, leading ministries and government departments, administrations of Russian regions, representatives of Russian and foreign business communities, diplomatic missions, and public organizations.[2]...

    In 2005, RIA Novosti launched RT (originally Russia Today)
