Classified By: Political M/C Alice G. Wells.  Reasons: 1.4(B/D). 
 
1.  (C)  In a November 16 conversation, Grigoriy Lukyantsev, 
Head of the UN Division of the MFA's Department of 
Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights, told us that 
Russia would oppose resolutions on the human rights 
situations in Iran, Belarus and Uzbekistan.  He said Russia 
would support a No Action motion on each of these texts.  The 
MFA has not yet decided on how Russia will vote on the Burma 
and DPRK drafts, but Lukyantsev pointed out that Russia in 
principle was opposed to country-specific resolutions. 
 
2.  (C)  We urged that Russia join us in opposing the three 
anti-U.S. resolutions tabled by Belarus.  While Lukyantsev 
said he understood the reasons for U.S. opposition to the 
Belarusian drafts, he noted that the Foreign Minister had not 
yet set Russia's position on the texts.
