European Leaders Rule Out Deploying Troops to Ukraine

On February 27, it was reported that Britain, Germany, Poland, and other European countries were against troop deployment in Ukraine. 

These announcements were made after French President Emmanuel Macron had said on February 26, that “There is no consensus at this stage … to send troops on the ground,” and that “Nothing should be excluded. We will do everything that we must so that Russia does not win”.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to the idea of NATO members sending troops to fight in Ukraine by saying “In that case, we would need to talk not about the probability, but about the inevitability (of a direct conflict)”.

As a new round of American aid to Ukraine is being debated over in Congress, many European nations have increased their own aid to Ukraine to previously unseen levels. 

This is developing.
