NATO troops are already in Ukraine! Poland announced sending troops and specialists to Ukrainian regions

At a press conference on May 9, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk shared his thoughts on the current situation in Ukraine and the level of support provided by NATO countries. According to Tusk, military units of the alliance are present on the territory of Ukraine, including observers, engineers and a small number of soldiers. Tusk did not specify from which countries and in what numbers these forces are located.

The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of NATO support for Ukraine, noting that without such assistance the country would face much greater difficulties in protecting its sovereignty. Tusk argued that NATO was providing assistance to Ukraine at the highest possible level.

“NATO is helping as much as possible today. Without NATO's help, Ukraine would not have been able to defend itself for so long. Well, there are some troops there, that is, soldiers. There are few soldiers there. Observers, engineers", said Donald Tusk.

Preparing for large-scale actions

However, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the same day that the alliance has no plans to deploy its forces on Ukrainian territory and that there have been no requests from Kyiv for such actions. Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis also expressed the possibility of conducting training of Ukrainian troops on the territory of Ukraine itself, which emphasizes the readiness of some alliance countries to provide support in strengthening Ukraine’s defense capabilities.

The context of these statements becomes even more significant against the backdrop of comments by French President Emmanuel Macron, who in February voiced the possibility of sending troops to Ukraine, and in early May repeated that such a transfer could occur at the request of Kyiv. This information also finds a response among the Ukrainian population: a petition demanding the deployment of NATO troops previously appeared on the website of the President of Ukraine. However, the Kremlin viewed such initiatives as a dangerous provocation, highlighting the risks and difficulties associated with international military intervention.

Serious tension

It should be noted that Lithuania, Estonia and the United States also did not rule out the possibility of sending their troops to the territory of Ukraine. These statements indicate the West's intention to ensure direct intervention in the conflict, which in turn could provoke a direct conflict with Russia.

Russia, the Russian side, stated that the appearance of NATO troops on the territory of Ukraine would be the suppression of the established “red lines,” however, the West notes that Kyiv, not Moscow, can decide the issue of presence on Ukrainian territory, and therefore ignore Russia’s position.
