White House advisor John Kirby stated that the US does not oppose the deployment of troops from other countries in Ukraine, according to the White House briefing.

Responding to a question about whether the US opposes other countries sending their troops to Ukraine, the advisor replied that it is a sovereign decision of each country, but the US will not do so.

"It's a sovereign decision that a nation has to make. I can just speak for this sovereign nation and this commander-in-chief. He’s made it clear that we will not put US boots on the ground," Kirby said.

US aid to Ukraine

The US Congress has been unable to approve new funding for assistance to Ukraine for several months, including for the continuation of arms supplies and more. This situation is due to differences between Republicans and Democrats on border security, funding for which was included in the package for assistance to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

Earlier, we reported that the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, announced the unblocking of the bill on assistance to Ukraine, but it will be significantly different.

By the way, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that the new package of assistance to Ukraine will last for several weeks.

We also reported that, according to CNN, the House of Representatives may vote on financial aid to Ukraine at the end of March or in April.
