Supply “Javelin” had a positive effect.
Ukraine continues negotiations with the United States on further deliveries of the lethal weapon. It is reported by the Minister of foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin said in an interview with Defense News.
Klimkin said that Russian troops are constantly present in the Donbass and support militias and mercenaries. At the same time, according to him, previous deliveries Javelin, sniper rifles and electronic defense had a positive effect.
“Negotiations on the supply of weapons is an ongoing discussion, because the Javelin was important psychologically. We noticed that the Russians took the tanks deeper into the occupied zone … mainly for fear that such weapons might be used in case of provocation”, – said the Minister.
He also added that Ukraine seeks to build up the defenses in the sea of Azov.
We will remind, in October, the representative of the US State Department on Affairs Kurt Volker said that Ukraine can get weapons from the United States in the case of a successful negotiation. In September, the Cabinet proposed to simplify the procurement of defence products abroad.
