UN deputy secretary-general Jan Eliasson appealed Wednesday for dialogue and deescalation in the Ukraine crisis as he urged participants to refrain from Cold War reflexes.Speaking to journalists after meeting members of the interim Ukrainian government in Kiev, Eliasson said it was "in everybody's interest" to find a settlement in Crimea, where pro-Moscow forces are in de facto control. Eliasson added that a UN envoy on human rights, Ivan Simonovic, would travel to Crimea over the weekend to look into possible violations.The OSCE said Wednesday it was sending a mission of 35 unarmed military observers to Ukraine on an observation mission requested by the new pro-Western authorities in Kiev and set to last until March 12 .
