US troops could return to Ukraine for embassy security

Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley has said that “low-level” discussion is underway on how the US may need to adjust its training of Ukrainian forces and on whether some US troops should be based in Ukraine.

The US withdrew its few troops before the war and has no plans to send in combat forces. Milley’s comments left open the possibility troops could return for embassy security or another non-combat role.

There have been questions about whether Washington will send a Marine security force back in to help protect the reopened embassy in Kyiv, or if other options should be considered.

Asked if US special operations forces may go into Ukraine, which officials have insisted they are not doing yet, Milley said that “any reintroduction of US forces into Ukraine would require a presidential decision. So we’re a ways away from anything like that.”
