The United States is talking about presenting Iran before the UN Security Council for discussion, pressure, censure.
Yesterday, Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns testified before Congress saying that the by next week the Security Council will deal with Iran. The United States may want to turn up the pressure, but the United States has never been good at reading or understanding Iran.
In that Russia is a permanent member of the Security Council they have veto power. If Russia doesn't want something to happen, it's not about to happen.
