Rumors of War - King of the North

Ukraine's president orders military on high alert following Putin comments - UPI.com
UPI reports: "Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Thursday ordered all military units near the border of Russian-annexed Crimea to be placed on the highest alert of combat preparedness. [...] Poroshenko's move comes after Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday accused the Ukrainian military of launching attacks into Crimea, attacks that he said killed two Russian service members, as part of repeated efforts to reclaim the peninsula. Poroshenko on Wednesday dismissed Putin's allegations as provocations."

Comment: It's hard to tell what's real in all of this bluster and posturing...just keeping an eye on it.
