Ukraine could get new, deadlier missiles from USA

The U.S. Congress is poised to allow the sale of coastal defense and anti-ship weapons as part of security assistance packages to Ukraine, through the 2020 defense policy bill.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed the House this week and is expected to be passed in the Senate next week; U.S. President Donald Trump has already announced he will sign it, Defense News reported.

The change comes as U.S. military aid is at the center of impeachment proceedings playing out against Trump in Washington. The impeachment has dragged Ukraine into the spotlight at a time the European nation continues to struggle with ongoing military activities from Russia.
