The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, has appealed to the United Nations, the European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, the BSEC Parliamentary Assembly, governments and parliaments of foreign countries due to the escalation of the security situation around Ukraine.

Some 326 MPs voted for a respective resolution, No. 7045, at a parliament meeting on Tuesday, February 15, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

Verkhovna Rada Chairman Ruslan Stefanchuk said the document proposes condemning the actions of the Russian Federation aimed at the unjustified expansion of its military aggression against Ukraine. In addition, the adoption of the resolution signals the call of leading international organizations and Ukrainian partners to continue to take measures to deter Russia's military plans on Ukraine.

"The measures proposed by the document will help consolidate peaceful international legal efforts to prevent the escalation of the Russian Federation's aggression against Ukraine," he said.

On February 14, representatives of the Ukrainian parliament's presidium registered in the Verkhovna Rada a draft resolution, No. 7045, "On the Appeal of the Verkhovna Rada to the United Nations, the European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, the BSEC Parliamentary Assembly, governments and parliament of foreign states in connection with the escalation of the security situation around Ukraine by the Russian Federation."

Experts in the West are considering several scenarios of further Russian aggression against Ukraine. In particular, U.S. intelligence data show that Russia may launch a new invasion of Ukraine with the participation of hundreds of battalion tactical groups. Russian troops may also advance from Belarus.
