MOSCOW | Russia said on Friday a U.N. resolution declaring invalid Crimea’s Moscow-backed referendum on seceding from Ukraine was counterproductive and accused Western states of using blackmail and threats to drum up “yes” votes.
The non-binding resolution passed with 100 votes in favor, 11 against and 58 abstentions in the 193-nation U.N. General Assembly on Thursday, in a vote that Western nations said highlighted Russia’s isolation.
“This counterproductive initiative only complicates efforts to resolve the domestic political crisis in Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
