Ukrainian Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council urged to prepare for war with Russia

In fact, Turchynov said that Russia is trying to escalate the situation in the region.

"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 Federation Council 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", said Turchynov.
