KIEV, March 2 (Reuters) - Ukraine's parliament called for international monitors to help protect its nuclear power plants on Sunday as tension mounted with Russia.

Hryhoriy Nemyria, a member of parliament, said the assembly appealed to the signatories of a 1994 nuclear treaty that guaranteed Ukraine's safety -- including the United States, the United Kingdom and Russia.
