(FOX NEWS) – The Ukrainian military is “on edge” and “more stressed” as the prospect for a Russian invasion of the country appears to strengthen, a U.S. official told Fox News Friday.

“The Ukrainian military is on edge tonight,” the official said. “I have never heard them more stressed than during calls today.”

The State Department is making calls to some of the 30,000 American citizens who remain in Ukraine, urging them to vacate the country within the next 24-48 hours, the official said.

Several warnings, including one from the State Department, have urged Americans to depart from Ukraine “as soon as possible.”
