Trump is to present the plan to the Congress, which will have 30 days to consider the plan. If the Congress approves, the State Department can implement it.
This plan may include the anti-tank Javelin systems. The defense package of $47 million is to include selling 210 anti-tank missiles and 35 launching systems.
In a statement, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told ABC News: "The United States has decided to provide Ukraine enhanced defensive capabilities as part of our effort to help Ukraine build its long-term defense capacity, to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and to deter further aggression. U.S. assistance is entirely defensive in nature, and as we have always said, Ukraine is a sovereign country and has a right to defend itself. The United States remains committed to the Minsk agreements as the way forward in eastern Ukraine. We have no further comment, at this time."
