Russia Continues to Enable Mass Atrocities in Syria

Despite relentless assaults by the Syrian regime on civilian populations, there is still no international arms embargo on Syria. This is largely due to Russia’s insistence on blocking such a measure at the UN Security Council. In this week’s FirstCast, a Human Rights First podcast, we focus on the escalating violence in Syria and the Russian state arms dealer–Rosoboronexport–which continues to arm the Syrian regime with weapons. More on our work on Syria. Subscribe to FirstCast on iTunes and other platforms.
