Russia's veto ends UN panel monitoring North Korea sanctions over nuclear program

A veto by Russia at the UN Security Council has brought an end to the monitoring of UN sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear program. The veto has halted the operation of a panel of experts that had been monitoring sanctions on North Korea for 14 years. This move has prompted accusations from Western nations that Russia is seeking to avoid scrutiny as it allegedly violates the sanctions to buy weapons from Pyongyang for its war in Ukraine.
