Russia has lost its seat on the governing council of a UN agency that supports the cooperation and coordination of civil air travel among 193 countries.

Russia failed to get enough support to keep its seat on the 36-member governing council of the International Civil Aviation Organization, or ICAO, according to results posted Saturday on Twitter. A spokesman for ICAO did not directly comment on the results. Voting takes place every three years.
