The governments of Ukraine and the U.S. are agreeing on the conditions of supply of Javelin anti-tank weapon launchers, as William Taylor, Charge d-affaires a.i. the U.S. in Ukraine, said, Ukrainian News reported.

“Yes. We are ready to sell this weapon to Ukraine. Two governments are agreeing on the conditions,” Taylor is cited.

Answering the question on America’s reaction to Zelensky’s call to the Russian leader Vladimir Putin after four Ukrainian soldiers died in Donbas, Taylor said it was a brave step.

“This step showed the moral advantage of Ukraine in this war. Ukraine is trying to stop war. We want Russia to do the same,” he noted.
