Javelins – American anti-tank missile systems have been delivered to Ukraine, according to the State Department.

The US authorities in 2017 approved the supply of weapons to Kiev, including portable anti-tank missile systems “Javelin.” Despite repeated requests from the Ukrainian side, the previous administration of Barack Obama refused to supply thee.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko earlier said that Kiev expects to receive weapons from the US in 2018.

Russia has repeatedly warned against the supply of arms to Ukraine, as this will only lead to an escalation of the conflict. As the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, repeatedly stated, the supply of arms to Ukraine will not contribute to a settlement in the Donbass and the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, Grigory Karasin, also told RIA Novosti that Moscow is concerned about the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine.

As reported earlier from the Donbass republics – they are expecting a new Ukrainian offensive in early May.
