She had said the vote would be one of the "most significant in the Scottish parliament since devolution".
The Scottish Parliament voted by 90 to 34 for a government motion stating the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill should not proceed.
Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said his party is "unapologetically pro United Kingdom and pro EU".
While the Supreme Court has already ruled the UK Government does not need to consult the devolved administrations before it starts the formal process of leaving the EU, Mr Russell insisted the debate in Edinburgh was "more than symbolic". Liberals and Greens also voted against, in line with their national party position.
It said the Westminster parliament is not guaranteed a say in any new trade relationship once Britain has left the European Union and the decision to proceed "does not respect the majority vote to remain part of the European Union that was returned in every council area in Scotland". The amendment was backed by 72 votes to 33 with 18 abstentions. "There has been a referendum, it was clear, decisive, it was legal, and both sides agreed to abide by the results of that referendum", May's spokesperson told journalists on Wednesday.
Scot, a solicitor, believes that a second vote on Scottish independence would be fruitless and that the aim of the current administration should be to address the needs of the people as opposed to gaining support to leave the UK.
Scottish Labour MP Ian Murray said the SNP was "fixated" on independence, but claimed that "people in Scotland are very clear that they don't want another referendum". "And the contrast between those countries is stark".
Nearly two years later in June's European Union referendum, Scotland voted to remain in the European Union by 62 percent, but was outvoted by England which has a vastly larger population.
Scottish Conservatives' John Lamont accused the Scottish government of trying to "manufacture a grievance out of nothing".
A motion presented by the Scottish government will argue that the triggering of Article 50 should be rejected because the British government has left too many questions unanswered and that the Westminster parliament is not guaranteed a say in any new trade relationship once Britain has left the EU.
"The truth is actually more simple".
Speaking at the NFU Scotland conference on Tuesday (7 February), Ms Sturgeon said agriculture was a devolved issue, so only Scotland, and not Westminster, should determine its own policies as far as possible.
Scotland's farmers have been assured that the Scottish Government will fight for the best possible deal for the industry at home and in Europe after Brexit.
