Today on August 11, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko ordered placing troops on the border with Crimea and Donbass on high alert.

"I ordered all units near the administrative border with Crimea and along the demarcation line in Donbass to be put on high alert," the president said in tweet after his meeting with the defense and foreign ministers of Ukraine.

As EADaily reported earlier, Ukraine has pulled military hardware to the border with Russia near Crimea. Former parliamentarian of the Supreme Rada Oleksiy Zhuravko left such a post on Facebook.
