German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said today that European countries and NATO members will not send troops to Ukraine.

"It was discussed that what was agreed between the allies from the beginning should also apply for the future, which is that there will be no soldiers of European countries or NATO members on the territory of Ukraine," said Scholz after the summit of European leaders that took place in Paris.

He pointed out that European countries are ready to purchase weapons from third countries, outside of Europe, in order to speed up the delivery of military aid to Ukraine.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius also rejected sending ground troops to Ukraine.

"That is not an option for the Federal Republic of Germany," Pistorius told a news conference.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's spokesman said today that Great Britain does not plan to deploy combat troops in Ukraine.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Monday, after a summit of European leaders in Paris, that while there is no consensus on sending troops from European countries to Ukraine, "nothing can be ruled out."
