"The situation in Yemen is far more complicated than frequently we are made to believe", said Russian Ambassador to the U.N. Vassily Nebenzia.

But on February 26, Nebenzya said the US conclusion that Iran had supplied the rebels was "uncorroborated" and he said the evidence "requires verification and discussions within the sanctions committee" before the United Nations council can act on it.

The same report stated that although some weapons supplied to the Houthis were of Iranian manufacture, there has been no "sufficient evidence to confirm any direct large-scale supply of arms" by the Iranian government.
The US immediately lashed out at Moscow for its veto, blaming Russian Federation for shielding a "terrorist-sponsoring" Iran.
