US approved delivery of 150 Javelin missiles to Ukraine


The United States Department of State approved and Congress has informally signed off on a $39 million sale of additional Javelin anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.

This was reported by Bloomberg referring to three officials familiar with the decision.

The sale of 150 anti-tank missiles and two additional missile launchers could be announced later on Tuesday, according to one of officials, all of whom asked not to be identified since the decision hasn’t been announced. Ukraine requested the weapons early this past summer. The U.S. sold Ukraine over 200 missiles and 37 launchers in 2018.
