KIEV, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, has appealed to the UN “to consider the situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.” The appeal was supported by 250 MPs.

The appeal cited Article 51 of the UN Charter, saying that the right to self-defense accorded by that clause empowered Ukraine to turn to any state or regional collective security system for assistance in restoring its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“Our appeal offers the grounds for holding a special session of the UN Security Council,” Acting Foreign Minister Boris Tarasyuk, who is also a deputy leader of Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party faction in the Verkhovna Rada, said at the parliamentary session.
