US urges Russia to allow observers into Crimea

Samantha Power, US Ambassador to the United Nations speaks to the media after a closed-door session of the Security Council to discuss the situation in Ukraine March 6, 2014 at UN headquarters in New YorkUnited Nations (United States) (AFP) – The United States urged Moscow on Thursday to help international observers enter Crimea, as it joined allies in denouncing the semi-autonomous peninsula’s planned referendum to separate from Ukraine. In a fourth emergency session on the Ukraine crisis in less than a week, the United Nations Security Council was once again clearly divided, with Western powers denouncing the Crimean parliament’s “illegal” decision to put the question of secession from Ukraine to a referendum on March 16. “We call on Russia to allow UN and OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) monitors… into all of Ukraine, including Crimea, to ensure the rights of all Ukrainians are being respected, including ethnic Russians,” US envoy Samantha Power told reporters.
