NATO Allies Refuse To Send Troops To Ukraine As Russia Warns Of Hostility

Must Read

The United States and major European allies announced on Tuesday that they had no intentions to send ground troops to Ukraine after France raised the prospect, and the Kremlin warned that any such action would unavoidably spark hostilities between Russia and NATO.

While he emphasized that there was currently no consensus, French President Emmanuel Macron stated on Monday that Western allies should not rule out any solutions in their efforts to prevent a Russian victory in Ukraine.

His remarks on measures to strengthen the waning support for Kyiv at a hurriedly called summit of European leaders in Paris coincide with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces’ military victories in eastern Ukraine and the Ukrainian side’s increasing manpower and ammunition shortages.

Germany, Britain, Spain, Poland, and the Czech Republic, on the other hand, dissociated themselves from any notion that they would send ground forces to the war in Ukraine, which is currently in its third year.

“…There will be no ground troops, no soldiers on Ukrainian soil sent there by European countries or NATO states,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Tuesday.

Boris Pistorius, the German Minister of Defense, was as steadfast. During a visit to Vienna, Pistorius informed reporters that having troops on the ground was not an option for Germany.

Later, the White House reaffirmed that it also had no intention of sending ground forces, and instead urged lawmakers in the United States to adopt a security aid bill that has been pending in order to guarantee that Ukrainian military receive the weaponry and ammunition they need to fight.
