Why doesn't U.S. use “strategic ambiguity” on whether or not to send troops to Ukraine just like they do for the Taiwan situation?

United States has been using strategic ambiguity on Taiwan Strait issue by not clearly saying whether they would aid Taiwan with U.S. troops should Mainland China attack Taiwan, which intimidates China and leaves lots of room for themselves at the same time.

But for the issue of Ukraine, the leaders of United States kept saying they will not send troops to help Ukraine defend themselves and EU also said they won't make Ukraine a non-fly zone for Russia. Isn't it better for U.S./NATO to use the same strategic ambiguity in Ukraine situation, to intimidate Russia to some extent, even if they have already decided not to do so?
