NATO soldiers have been in Ukraine for a long time, declared the Polish minister.  He thanked the countries that take the risk

According to the Bild portal, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski announced that the soldiers of the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) are already in Ukraine. He did not say exactly which countries the soldiers were from.

He said earlier that the idea of ​​sending troops to a country attacked by the Russian army is not unthinkable. At the end of February, the presence of European soldiers in Ukraine was revealed by an unnamed representative of the European Union.

“I want to thank the countries concerned for taking this risk. They know well which I mean,” said the minister on the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Poland’s accession to NATO, according to Bild.

Roughly two weeks earlier, an unnamed European security official made similar comments, referring to special forces. “Everyone knows that there are Western special forces in Ukraine. They just didn’t officially admit it,” he said at the time.

Sikorski has now also said that the presence of NATO troops in Ukraine is not unthinkable. “I appreciate the initiative of French President Emmanuel Macron, because it is about (Russian President Vladimir) Putin being afraid, not that we are afraid of Putin,” he said.

Macron did not rule out the possibility that foreign troops would be sent to Ukraine. However, Sikorsky’s position differs from that of Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, who rejected the idea of ​​sending Polish soldiers to Ukraine.

The debate about the possibility of NATO troops operating in Ukraine flared up after Macron, at a conference in Paris at the end of February, in response to a question about the possible dispatch of French soldiers to Ukraine, said that nothing could be ruled out. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico was the first to speak about sending soldiers to war.

The head of French diplomacy, Stéphane Séjourné, immediately clarified that Paris would not send its soldiers to Ukraine to fight, but to fulfill other tasks. It is necessary to help with demining or service of military systems.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas responded to Macron’s words in a similar way. However, the idea has already been rejected by Germany, Italy, Great Britain, the USA, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
