Sending troops to Ukraine 'worth considering' - ex-UK defense minister --British forces should be kept away from the front line but provide support such as training, James Heappey has said | 12 April 2024 | The UK should consider sending troops to Ukraine, former Minister of State for the Armed Forces James Heappey said in an interview with Sky News published on Friday. The comments came in response to recent controversial remarks by French President Emmanuel Macron about potentially sending NATO troops to the conflict zone. "Some of the things that Macron has suggested recently, I think are things that really do deserve consideration," Heappey said. He warned, however, that the idea should be carefully thought through, as direct participation in the fighting could have undesirable consequences.
