The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations says Russia's vetoes against holding Syria's government accountable are "extremely disruptive" to the U.N. Security Council's ability to restore peace in the conflict, and have emboldened President Bashar Assad to do "almost whatever he wants".Syria's conflict is entering its fifth year, with more than 200,000 killed, and the Security Council is often accused of failing Syria's people.Russia in late January hosted consultations in Moscow between representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition, the first on Syria since a U.N.-sponsored conference in Geneva collapsed early last year.Power said no one, including Russia, wants to see Syria become a "magnet for terrorism".
