Ukraine's parliament appealed on Wednesday to the United Nations to discuss the occupation by Russian forces of its Crimea peninsula and said it reserved the right to ask individual countries for help in resolving the issue.

In a debate hours before Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk was to address the Security Council in New York, some members called for a UN peacekeeping force, though the resolution that was passed did not specify that form of assistance.



In a second vote, the chamber endorsed a document confirming that Ukraine sought deeper integration with the European Union.
