BELGRADE - Russia said on Tuesday Western attempts to topple Muammar Gaddafi were a violation of a UN resolution on Libya, which only authorized the use of force to protect civilians.

"The UN Security Council never aimed to topple the Libyan regime," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on a visit to Belgrade.

"All those who are currently using the UN resolution for that aim are violating the UN mandate," he said.
