White House: US Will Not Send Troops to Ukraine

  • WH

Washington, February 28 (QNA) - The White House said that the United States would not send troops to fight in Ukraine.

US President Joe Biden "has been clear that the US will not send troops to fight in Ukraine," US National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said in a statement.

National Security Council spokesman John Kirby underlined that the only US military personnel in Ukraine were with the American embassy in Kyiv "doing important work" on the accountability of weapons provided to Ukraine.

In remarks to reporters, Kirby denied that US troops could be sent for demining, arms production or cyber operations, as French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne had suggested Western troops could be.

He added that it would be a "sovereign decision" for France or any other NATO country whether to send troops to Ukraine.

US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller, asked whether the United States could send troops for other purposes such as training, said the Biden administration opposed any deployment to Ukraine.

"We're not sending boots on the ground in Ukraine. The president's been very clear," Miller told reporters. (QNA)
