New supply of American missile systems Javelin is a step closer. According to Bloomberg, the U.S. Congress approved a preliminary decision to sell Ukraine lethal weapons for 39 million dollars. This should be officially announced shortly today.

Allegedly, the supply contract is not part of the financial support for Ukraine's defense, the Congress approved earlier. Ukrainian army received the Javelins for the first time last May. They are high-precision complexes capable of destroying armored vehicles, tanks, drones, helicopters and landing planes.
