Poland sparks concern saying NATO troops are ‘already present in Ukraine’ putting Europe ‘on the brink’

11th Mar 24 11:48 am

Poland has sparked alarm as the Polish Foreign Minister has said that “NATO soldiers are already present” who are operating in Ukraine.

This admission by the Polish Foreign Minister could spark an immediate escalation with Moscow as Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) chief Sergei Naryshkin warned last week that if NATO troops are on the ground in Ukraine this will put the world “on the brink of nuclear war.”

Radoslaw Sikorski said during a conference to mark Poland’s 25th anniversary of joining NATO, “NATO soldiers are already present in Ukraine.

“And I would like to warmly thank the ambassadors of those states that have taken that risk.

“Those who are those states know who they are, but you can’t disclose that, yes in contrary to other politicians I won’t list those countries.”

He then made reference to the French President Emanuel Macron who said this month that he will not rule out putting boots on the ground in Ukraine and told Western allies they must “not be cowards.”

In a post shared on X, Sikorski said, “The presence of NATO forces in Ukraine is not unthinkable.

“I appreciate the French President Emmanuel Macron’s initiative, because it is about Putin being afraid, not us being afraid of Putin.”

The Kremlin responded as the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova said there is now “no point in denying” that NATO is involved in Ukraine.

On 27 February, the spokesperson for the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak admitted that there is a “small number of personnel in country supporting the armed forces of Ukraine, including for medical training.”

The spokesperson insisted that the UK currently has “no plans to make a large-scale deployment.”

Last week Macron reaffirmed their commitment to supporting Ukraine and following a meeting with party leaders, French Communist Party National Secretary Fabien Roussel warned that “France’s position has changed.”

Speaking of the war in Ukraine Roussel said that Macron expressed “there are no more red lines, there are no more limits,” Le Monde reported.

Russia’s former President Dmitry Medvedev gave the grave warning in response to comments made by the French President.

Medvedev wrote on X, “Macron has said, ‘there are no more red lines, there are no more limits’ in terms of supporting Ukraine (Le Monde).

“Then that means, Russia has no more red lines left for France.”

He added in the post, “In hostem omina licita,” a Latin phrase that translates as “everything is legal if it is done to an enemy.”

Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service chief Naryshkin warned that comments made by Macron sending NATO boots on the ground in Ukraine has put the world “on the brink of nuclear war.”

The SVR chief told Russian TV channel, “This shows the high degree of irresponsibility of Europe’s leaders today, in this case the president of France.

“This is, of course, sad to see – to observe and to understand that the ability of current elites in Europe and the North Atlantic to negotiate is at a very low level.

“It is more and more rare that they demonstrate any common sense at all. But these statements are extremely dangerous.

They are already taking us to the brink of nuclear war.”
