"Everybody else on the Security Council is doing what it can unilaterally to ensure that the Assad regime is not getting support from the outside."

Russian nationals were on board the inbound flight. Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu lied or didn't tell all, saying, "We received information that the plane's cargo did not comply with rules of civil aviation."
