“We’ve got no want for troopers with international flags on our territory. We’re not asking for that. In any other case, all the world could be destabilised,” the Ukrainian president instructed the RBK Ukraine web site.
“We don’t need to give any further purpose for Russia to say we now have (international) bases right here that they should ‘defend’ themselves towards,” he stated.
“However we would like the whole lot else,” Zelensky added in reference to funding and arms delivered from Ukraine’s Western allies.
US President Joe Biden has firmly excluded sending troopers to Ukraine and has urged Americans to depart immediatly.
Some NATO powers, together with Britain, have withdrawn or began withdrawing navy personnel they’d stationed in Ukraine to coach the nation’s armed forces.
