On January 28, US President Joe Biden announced that he would send troops to Eastern Europe in an effort to keep up pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin over Ukraine.
The announcement comes as top Pentagon officials have expressed support for accelerating diplomacy.
Putin and French President Emmanuel McChrystal have agreed to ease tensions, while Ukrainian President Vladimir Putin has urged Western leaders to refrain from making alarming remarks about the deployment of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine.
So far, neither Putin nor the leaders of the United States and Europe have shown signs of easing the crisis, which has been going on for weeks. The Ukraine crisis has become the worst crisis between Russia and the West in decades.
But during an hour-long telephone conversation with the French president, Putin said he had no plans to go to war, according to an aide to the president.
US President Joe Biden has said he will soon send some US troops to bolster NATO’s presence in Eastern Europe as tensions remain high.
The United States has already deployed thousands of troops, mainly across Western Europe.
Top Pentagon officials have urged Russia to focus on diplomacy, even as it deploys troops and weapons that could threaten the whole of Ukraine.
Senior General Mark Millie, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned that any confrontation could hurt both sides.
