Russia says Yanukovych asked for Russian troops

Published: 03.03.14, 23:56 / Israel News

Russia's UN ambassador says Ukraine's fugitive President Viktor Yanukovych asked President Vladimir Putin to use Russia's armed forces "to establish legitimacy, peace, law and order, stability and defending the people of Ukraine."


Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told the UN Security Council Monday he was authorized to read a statement from Yanukovych - and show members a copy - which says that "as the legitimately elected representative" Yanukovych believes "Ukraine is on the brink of civil war." (AP)
