Russia has accused the West of inciting the Syrian opposition after a suicide bomber killed the defense minister and President Bashar Assad's brother-in-law.

Sergey Lavrov was quoted as saying by the RIA Novosti news agency on Wednesday that "instead of calming the opposition down, some of our partners are inciting it to go on."

Russia is at odds with the U.S. and its European allies ahead of a scheduled vote Wednesday afternoon on a new resolution aimed at ending the country's 17-month civil war.
