Ukraine's Foreign Minister: NATO Countries to Not Send Troops to Ukraine until End of War

Thursday, 8 June 2023

NATO countries will not deploy troops to the territory of Ukraine until the Russian-Ukrainian war is over.

"Foreign states will not deploy their troops to the territory of our country until the armed conflict on Ukrainian territory is resolved. Moreover, we are not asking for it. We say, give us weapons," stated Dmytro Kuleba, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, in an interview with "Snidanok z 1+1," commenting on remarks of the former NATO Secretary-General.

The minister points out that when Ukraine joins NATO, Ukrainian brigades will be stationed in other NATO countries to defend them.

Kuleba also added that Ukraine's NATO membership cannot end this war but it will prevent new conflicts.

Previously, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former Secretary-General of NATO, said that within the discussion on future security guarantees for Ukraine, individual NATO members might agree to deploy their troops to Ukrainian territory.

According to Rasmussen, if NATO is unable to make a decision on Ukraine's membership or security guarantees at the summit in Vilnius, "there is a clear possibility that some countries individually might take action."
