Russia Fails To Win Re-election To U.N. Human Rights Council

Russia is no longer on the board for U.N.'s Human Rights Council. After getting beaten out by Hungary and Croatia, the U.N. abassasador for Russia stated that they faced a good competition. This comes after several rights groups lobbying against Moscow for their military support of the Syrian government. Hungary beat Russia by 32 votes, while Croatia won by two. Russia's term will end on the 31st of December. However, Russia wasn't the only one getting beat out. It seems as though Cuba and Brazil beat Guatemala.
