"I know a lot of you have been very interested in the sale of Javelin missiles to Ukraine. I can tell you that that was something that was on the table for a very long time before we announced back in 2017 that the President decided to provide the Javelin missile systems to Ukraine. Those were delivered just a few weeks ago," Nauert told journalists at Department press briefing on May 3, Censor.NET reports.
April 30, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko confirmed delivery of Javelin anti-tank missile systems to Ukraine.
Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said that on May 2 the Ukrainian troops would start acquiring both theoretical and practical skills of operating Javelins.
