NATO chief says no plans to send combat troops to Ukraine if Russia invades

 LONDON: NATO has no plans to deploy combat troops to non-NATO member Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Sunday. 

Asked on BBC Television whether he would rule out putting NATO troops in Ukraine if Russia does invade, Stoltenberg said: "We have no plans to deploy NATO combat troops to Ukraine ... we are focusing on providing support." 
"There is a difference between being a NATO member and being a strong and highly valued partner as Ukraine. There's no doubt about that."
