US once again rules out no-fly zone over Ukraine

1 March 2022, 11:42 AM

The White House is not considering establishing a no-fly zone over Ukraine, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Feb. 28.

According to Psaki, a no-fly zone over Ukraine would require U.S. military involvement, leading to a “potential direct conflict and potential war with Russia,” which is something the United States is trying to avoid.

The press secretary reiterated U.S. President Joe Biden’s “clear position that (he) has no intention to send U.S. troops into a war with Russia.”
