London admits negative effect of sending NATO troops to Ukraine

London, May 3 (Prensa Latina) Sending troops from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to the conflict in Ukraine would have a negative effect, as it would dangerously increase tensions, British Foreign Minister David Cameron admitted today.

I would not be in favor of transferring NATO troops to Ukraine, as it would be a dangerous escalation and there is no need for it, said Cameron, commenting on recent statements by French President Emmanuel Macron about that ex-Soviet republic.

This week, Macron again mentioned his initiative to send his country’s forces to Ukraine in case Russia achieved a substantial change in the Ukrainian battlefront line.

The Russian Minister of Defense, Sergei Shoigu, reported this day that the Ukrainian armed forces lost at least 111 thousand soldiers and 20 thousand war equipment this year alone.

Cameron, for his part, stated that the Western powers have so far prepared some 60,000 Ukrainian soldiers, but he considered that the possibility for the soldiers of the Atlantic alliance to kill their Russian counterparts would be incorrect.

However, the former British prime minister also took up the West’s permanent discourse that a defeat for Ukraine in the conflict with Russia would create a “dangerous future.”

Cameron’s statements made the day before created a scandal in the media, as the head of this nation’s diplomacy supported the possibility of kyiv using British weapons to attack Russian territory.

Then there was a promise of denial from the British Foreign Ministry, although finally the diplomat’s statements were published this day with the same words.

The United Kingdom supplied a large amount of weapons to kyiv, which received a total volume equivalent to 165 billion dollars since President Vladimir Putin ordered a war operation on February 24, 2022 to protect the rebellious region of Donbas.

The West insists, as the United States did with a package of almost 61 billion dollars, on the rearmament of Ukraine, while in Moscow American, French, German and British weapons occupied as trophies by Russian troops are presented at an exhibition.
