Heavy Ukrainian military presence at eastern roadblock

I am currently 131km from Kharkiv - between Kjarkiv and Slovyansk - at a Ukrainian police roadblock where all cars are being monitored going in and out.

Above me is a Ukrainian helicopter and on the ground I can see 18 armoured personnel carriers, dozens of Ukrainian troops and seven coaches used to transport them.
