In a statement made by its Foreign Ministry Wednesday, Russia is accusing NATO of violating the Security Council resolution on Libya by killing civilians during air raids, taking sides in the Libyan conflict and supplying the anti-Gaddafi rebels with arms.

It also hopes the revolutionary authorities will respect human rights, refrain from reprisals, advance national reconciliation and adequately protect Libyan civilians, after the international mandate that had charged NATO with the task expired on Monday midnight.

The Security Council resolution to end the mandate had been tabled by Russia.
