PINELLAS PARK, Fla.As the situation intensifies between Russia and Ukraine, the United States has ordered its troops, including ‘Task Force Gator’ to get out, in case of a Russian invasion.   

One hundred and sixty soldiers of the Florida National Guard from Pinellas Park have been in the country since November training Ukrainian soldiers.  

U.S. Secretary of defense Lloyd Austin made the call amid growing concerns that the Russian military could invade any day.  

Earlier this week, the White House urged up to 16,000 American citizens in the country to get out.
