The State Department said the United States will not send troops to Ukraine.

The State Department said the United States will not send troops to Ukraine.

Each country will decide for itself whether to send military personnel to Ukraine; the United States has no such intentions, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said.

“Other countries will decide what they want to do. But on behalf of the United States, the president has made it clear that there will be no American military on the ground,” Miller said at a briefing.

This is how he responded to a request to evaluate publications in the Western press that the United States would allegedly support European countries sending military personnel to Ukraine.

Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron said that the EU had agreed to create a “ninth coalition for deep strikes” – supplying Ukraine with medium- and long-range missiles. He also said that France will do everything to prevent Russia “from winning this war.” According to him, the leaders of Western countries have discussed the possibility of sending troops to Ukraine, but no consensus has yet been reached. Shortly after Macron’s statements, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said that Germany would not send its troops to Ukraine, and Scholz stressed that NATO countries as a whole were not going to do this. In addition, the Chancellor again stated that there are no plans to send long-range Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine.
