The United Nations Security Council is calling for a swift inquiry into the Malaysian Airlines disaster in Ukraine. Ambassadors met into the early morning hours Monday, as fighting continues between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian forces in the area. The Security Council met late Monday morning discussing a proposed resolution that would call for an independent, international investigation into the downing of that Malaysia jet. It also calls on all states to refrain from, in effect, interfering with any investigation, and calls for a halt in fighting in the area, so that investigators can have free reign with what remains of the Malaysian plane. The British ambassador predicted a vote late Monday afternoon. However, Russia was the main holdout, proposing several amendments, concerned that Ukraine would have a hand in the investigation. The Russian Ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, departed the Security Council session, saying, "We'll see how it works out." Earlier, the British ambassador had said, "Typical Russian stalling tactics."
