(QHA) -

Ukrainian Parliament with a constitutional majority has adopted a statement calling Crimea inseparable from Ukraine and urged Russian President Vladimir Putin not to send troops, Ukrinform reported. 

MPs have passed this decision at a meeting behind closed doors on Sunday.

"The Autonomous Republic of Crimea is an inseparable part of Ukraine, the territory is covered by the Constitution and laws of Ukraine," reads the statement.

It also notes that the movement of foreign military should only be in agreement with the Ukrainian authorities of Ukraine.

MPs, among other, have called on to resolve conflicts by peaceful means.

To recall, Russian President Vladimir Putin received permission from Russia’s upper house of parliament Saturday to send troops to Ukraine, responding to what he called a threat to Russian lives.
