UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Ukraine's U.N. ambassador says his country may go to the U.N. General Assembly if the divided Security Council doesn't act on Russia's seizure of Crimea.
Russia holds veto power on the council. Assembly votes are non-binding but can be influential, especially when a big majority of nations show they're united.
Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev said in an interview Friday with The Associated Press that Ukraine's government is waiting to see how the Security Council performs "in the next few days."
Russia can block any Security Council resolution demanding that Russian forces leave the semi-autonomous Ukrainian region.
Sergeyev said the General Assembly could use a "Uniting for Peace" provision which allows the body to hold an emergency session on issues of peace and security if the council is deadlocked.
