Patrick Ryder, spokesman for the US Department of Defense, said that the US military does not participate in military actions on Ukrainian soil.
“The United States has no combat units in Ukraine. We are not conducting any combat operations against the Russian military. We are 100 percent focused on supporting Ukraine and giving it the security assistance it needs,” Ryder told the Washington Examiner. Protect yourself.”
Earlier, the Pentagon refused to respond to the request of the “Tass” agency regarding the alleged leak of US data showing the presence of the US military and special forces from several other “NATO” countries on the ground of Ukrainian. Two months ago, 97 soldiers, 14 of them American soldiers, were in Ukraine.
As Ryder explained to the newspaper, Washington “maintains a small military presence at the US Embassy in Kiev.” It is pointed out that these forces are in the “office of the military attaché” there and oversee the end-use of security assistance programs.
“Again, none of these forces are in conflict,” Ryder concluded, “the President made clear from the beginning. [جو بايدن] We will not send troops to Ukraine, and that was true yesterday, and it is true today.”
