KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- Ukraine's acting president says he has ordered the country's armed forces on full readiness because of the threat of "potential aggression."
Speaking live on Ukrainian TV, Oleksandr Turchynov said Saturday he had also ordered stepped up security at nuclear power plants, airports and other strategic infrastructure.
His comments on Ukrainian TV came after Russia's parliament approved a military intervention in Ukraine and Russian troops and pro-Russian units took up positions across the strategic Crimea region.
