Poland does not plan to directly participate in the war in Ukraine, states Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

Tusk was asked about the talks between the foreign ministers of NATO states taking place in Brussels, particularly about the possible establishing an Alliance mission in Ukraine.

"I will not be commenting on this until I have full information on these conversations and their outcomes. At this moment I can repeat what I told (French - ed.) President Macron, (American - ed.) President Biden and other leaders. Poland does not plan to take part directly in the war on Ukraine's territory," he said.

Macron's initiative to send troops to Ukraine

Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron did not rule out the possibility that NATO could deploy troops to assist Ukraine, sparking a discussion among Ukraine's allies.

France later clarified that it was not about sending troops directly to take part in combat operations. Some NATO countries expressed readiness to consider such a possibility, including Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Canada.

However, the majority of countries did not support Macron's position. Moreover, according to Western media, Macron's unexpected statement further strained his relationship with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
