The United States continues to provide military assistance to Ukraine, but the possibility of introducing American ground forces to help the Ukrainian army is not ruled out.
As Foreign Affairs reports, political science professor at the University of Chicago, John Mearsheimer, named 3 possible scenarios for further developments :
- if the war drags on until the end of 2022, then Washington may send ground troops to help the Ukrainian army;
- if Russia manages to defeat the forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and achieve a major victory , the US can try to turn the tide by directly engaging in hostilities;
- due to intentional escalation – an unexpected event that unfolds in an upward spiral, the US may unwillingly become drawn into the conflict.
