Moldova has placed its border guards on alert as the security situation in Ukraine deteriorates, the country’s leadership has announced.

Security forces have been ordered “to take all necessary actions to ensure public order inside the country,” a joint statement by Moldova’s President Nicolae Timofti, Prime Minister Iurie Leanca, and Parliament speaker Igor Coreman reads.

Moldova has 1,500 Russian peacekeepers stationed in Trans-Dniester, on the border with Ukraine, who have been tasked with keeping order since the War of Transnistria in 1992.
