67 countries have already supported the initiative to restrain the veto right in the UN Security Council in cases where conflicts become especially rigid, Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Yuriy Sergeyev wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

"67 states supported restrain the veto initiative to save the UNSC authority and stop abuse of veto right by Russia," he tweeted.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on July 29, Russia vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on setting up an MH17 international criminal tribunal to prosecute those responsible for downing a Malaysia Airlines plane over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014 that killed all 298 people on board.
