Ukraine asks for UN Sec Council session on crisis

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- Ukraine's Parliament has asked the U.N. Security Council to address the country's political turmoil.

Lawmakers on Friday adopted a resolution calling for a security council session amid growing tensions as pro-Russian gunmen asserted control over airports in the southern Crimea region.

The resolution also called on Russia to halt steps which it says are aimed against Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
