Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijiang said today that the UN Human Rights Council’s decision to launch an investigation into alleged human rights abuses by Russian troops has shaken members’ confidence in the body, Reuters reported.

The resolution of the Human Rights Council to launch the investigation was adopted by a large majority on Thursday, with 33 members voting in favor and two against China and Eritrea against.

Zhao told a news briefing today that China’s objection was due to the UN’s failure to consider some warring countries while choosing to target others.
