RIA News cites the statement of the State Department representative:
The State Department licensed commercial exports by American manufacturers of a limited number of small-caliber and light weapons to Ukraine. We have never had a policy restricting such commercial sales. The United States considers requests for licenses to sell and export in each case separately.
At the same time, the State Department noted that the delivery of precisely such weapons to the United States "never had any particular restrictions."
According to updated data, the USA will allow Ukraine to buy self-loading sniper rifles M107A1 (Barrett M82) from private companies (American). The total amount of purchases will be about 41,5 million dollars.
It is emphasized that the permission for the purchase by Ukraine of anti-tank missile systems "Javelin" was not issued. But such permission was issued to Georgia.
