Ukraine crisis: Poroshenko orders troops to key cities
Ukrainian army reinforcements have been ordered to key southern and eastern cities in case of a new rebel offensive, President Petro Poroshenko has confirmed.
The move follows disputed polls in the rebel-held areas of Donetsk and Luhansk, which both the Ukrainian administration and its Western allies have condemned.
Mr Poroshenko has also proposed scrapping a law that gives special status to Donetsk and Luhansk.
