U.S. has ‘no intention, interest or desire’ to send troops to Ukraine, White House says

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that the U.S. has “no intention, interest or desire” to send troops unilaterally to Ukraine. She confirmed that 8,500 troops are ready to be deployed to Ukraine but said the deployment was meant to “plus up” support in NATO’s eastern-flank countries.
