The U.S. government could not confirm that Javelin missile launchers have been sent to Ukraine. Heather Nauert, the official representative of the Department of the State said that at a briefing.

'I’d have to look into that. I’m not sure. And even if they were, I’m not sure we’d be able to confirm that', she said answering a reporter's question about the White House's intention to send Ukraine the weaponry.

Earlier, Stepan Poltorak, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine claimed that the anti-tank missile systems Javelin will be supplied to Ukraine in 2018.

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.
