US Senator John McCain called the decision to provide Kyiv with anti-tank munitions a "step in the right direction", according to McCain’s website.

"President Trump's reported decision to provide Javelin anti-tank munitions to Ukraine marks another significant step in the right direction and sends a strong signal that the United States will stand by its allies and partners as they fight to defend their sovereignty and territorial integrity," the Senator’s statement says.

He also argued that since Vladimir Putin continues creating instability in Ukraine and Russian-led forces escalate their deadly attacks, the decision is very timely.

Finally, the Senator emphasized that "providing defensive lethal assistance to Ukraine is not opposed to a peace in Ukraine – it is essential to achieving it".

As we reported earlier, according to the information of ABC from its sources in the White House, US President Donald Trump is to announce his approval of a plan to sell anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. This plan is to include the anti-tank Javelin systems. The defense package of $47 million envisages selling 210 anti-tank missiles and 35 launching systems to them.
