There have been requests for a NATO-enforced no-fly zone in Ukraine. Commentators have warned that this risks a war between the US and Russia, the world's largest nuclear powers.
US Press Secretary Jen Psaki told Axios on February 28, 2022 that a no-fly zone in Ukraine:
"would require... implementation by the U.S. military"
"That is definitely escalatory, that would potentially put us into a place where we're in a military conflict with Russia. That is not something the president wants to do."
Despite Ukrainian President Zelenskyy's requests to NATO leaders that an NFZ be implemented, the NATO Secretary-General has stated that NATO does not intend to move into Ukraine:
"We have no intentions of moving into Ukraine neither on the ground or in the airspace," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told MSNBC on Monday. "We have a responsibility to make sure that this doesn't spiral out of control that escalates even further into concern for full-fledged war in Europe involving NATO allies."
The UK also appears reluctant to support an NFZ:
UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace has also ruled out the idea, saying that "NATO would have to effectively declare war on Russia."
Will NATO declare a No-Fly Zone anywhere in Ukraine before 2023?
