Kiev denies Pentagon documents: No NATO forces in Ukraine

No NATO forces on the territory of Ukraine. The defense ministers of Ukraine and Spain have denied allegations that NATO troops are fighting Russian armed forces in Ukraine, allegations that have arisen from leaks of highly classified Pentagon documents. “It is totally false that there are NATO troops in Ukraine,” Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles told a joint press conference in Madrid with her Ukrainian counterpart. “It is not true that there are NATO personnel in Ukraine,” repeated his Kiev colleague Oleksii Reznikov.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal met US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin at the Pentagon. Ukrinform reports this. “America can once again demonstrate its leadership by providing Ukraine with F15 or F16 aircraft,” Shmyhal said, thanking the United States for its leadership in supporting Ukraine’s defense. “I also ask you to reconsider the possibility of equipping Ukraine with long-range systems (missiles, ed.)”, added the Ukrainian Prime Minister, underlining that Ukraine must achieve victory in this war, “but to achieve this goal sooner and with less losses, Ukraine will need more military supportĀ».
