Turchynov: Russia concentrates its forces along Ukrainian border

Russia is deploying additional troops near the Ukrainian border, stated Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov.

“We can see active attempts to deploy additional military units along the Ukrainian border, and their number is already comparable with those of 2014 when the Russian State Duma decided to deploys troops [to Crimea and Donbas]. These new units are not simply a demonstration of force.  They can be used for active military actions. We should understand and be ready for it," he said.

Several days ago, Turchynov stated that Russia would never dominate in the Azov Sea.
