MOSCOW - Russia said on Thursday it will not support a draft UN Security Council resolution on Syria that would allow the council to authorize sanctions ranging from diplomatic and economic sanctions to military intervention.

"If they decide to do it (put the resolution to a vote on Thursday), knowing it would be unacceptable to us, we will not let it pass," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told Interfax news agency.
