The Biden administration’s position from the outset of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was that American soldiers would not be present in the country.

American soldiers in Ukraine would be a significant escalation since if Russia accidentally killed or injured them it could be seen as an act of war by the United States.

The United States has sent $60 billion in military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine after the United States approved a $12 billion aid package to the country last month.

Now, the Pentagon has admitted that there are ‘small numbers’ of US soldiers in Ukraine.

The Pentagon explained that the soldiers are there to conduct inspections of weapons provided by the United States and other western countries.

While there is still no confirmation of combat troops in Ukraine, some have warned that this could be the beginning of ‘mission creep’, where the United States steadily escalates its involvement in the conflict.

Two bombshell reports by the Associated Press and Washington Post Monday and Tuesday have confirmed that the United States has boots on the ground in the Ukraine conflict. Crucially, these troops are performing tasks separate from mere embassy security.

The American troops are said to be performing “inspections” of US weapon caches after last week the State Department and Pentagon unveiled a new plan to track US-supplied weapons in efforts to implement accountability for the billions of dollars worth of arms and ammunition transferred to Ukrainian forces since near the start of the war eight months ago.

“A small number of U.S. military forces inside Ukraine have recently begun doing onsite inspections to ensure that Ukrainian troops are properly accounting for the Western-provided weapons they receive, a senior U.S. defense official told Pentagon reporters Monday,” the AP/WaPo reporting revealed.
