(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, May 22 – The Pentagon and the US State Department are assessing the possibility of sending special forces to protect the US Embassy in Kyiv.
Defense Department spokesman John Kirby told the Washington Post, confirming the Wall Street Journal’s progress. “We are studying the security conditions” of the diplomatic office in Ukraine “but no decision has been taken,” Kirby stressed.
The Wall Street Journal revealed that US military officials and diplomats are considering sending special forces to protect the US embassy in the Ukrainian capital, which has just reopened.
The sources indicated that the proposal has not yet been submitted to US President Joe Biden. If the decision is made, the presence of US forces in Ukraine would escalate from Biden’s initial promise that no US soldiers would enter Ukraine. (handle).
