The United States will pay for a portion of the new military aid that will be provided to Ukraine and will include supplies of Javelin anti-tank missile systems (ATGM), the US State Department said.


The United States confirmed that part of the military assistance to Kiev will be donated


We intend to provide Ukraine with defensive anti-tank weapons, including the Javelin missile system. These funds will be partially funded by US money intended to assist other countries in the field of security.
- Said an employee of the State Department. At the same time, he refused to name the delivery dates, comment on the possible ban on the use of anti-tank systems in the Donbass, as well as the amount that Washington would actually give to Kiev.

The Foreign Ministry explained that they consider the Javelin anti-tank systems "entirely defensive in nature."

According to his information, “so far, the United States has provided the Ukrainian Armed Forces with badly needed counter-battery radars, walkie-talkies, (armored army off-road vehicles) Humvee, medical equipment, protective equipment and night vision devices.”

The American diplomat noted that after these deliveries, the volume of security assistance, which Ukraine received from the USA from 2014, will exceed 750 million dollars.

Also, according to the State Department, Washington remains committed to the Minsk agreements and believes that the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine "should and will be resolved" by diplomatic means.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that the Javelins would be delivered to Kiev at the expense of the American budget. They can be transferred to Ukraine within six months

              And so they want to test Javelin in the combat conditions of the Russian Plain. There is one problem, Javelin is completely ineffective in the forest zone and in settlements, and in Iraq and Afghanistan, where there was its combat use, there are no forests. Its use in the steppes may be justified, but there it has a too feeble range of 2500 meters, the same Cornet pounds for 5 kilometers, and the T-72 for 4 km hits direct fire, and half-line for 5 thousand, i.e. I’m ready to finish the calculation from a distance that is more than twice the ability of Javelin in range. Based on the foregoing, the prospect is not rosy ... for the APU bully

                just the opposite. with its working building range and in general the urban landscape is ideal. and in the steppe or forest it will be discovered very quickly.

                  the point is not a little bit in this, the GOS is poorly adapted to the development, etc., but according to the distances from the situation, since the high-rise line opens further and for example 10 km of cornet can be very useful

                    I am not mistaken. just if I had it in service with the unit having such a range and specifics of use, then I would not use it in the open. and suburban housing with elevations is ideal for a hidden attack.

                      Urban development implies that the target is hidden by buildings, there is no way to fix it with a guidance device. The application distance is reduced, where 75-100 meters, as minimum application distance also makes this weapon useless. The width of the streets and the building density of the Novorossiysk towns is not in his favor, and Spike, with its minimum 200-400 meters, must be driven into the neck. Here, Metis with 40 meters of minimum use, is experiencing problems where the old RPG and the other Fauspatron are more effective laughing to hit from 10-30 meters from around the corner. So it turns out neither this, nor this. In the field is weak, in the city is too strong, and in the forest is generally useless. Given the problems with electronic warfare, the verdict is expensive and useless trash.

            To summarize all of the above, the enslavement applies to all of Europe, which for some time has been detaching 2% of GDP to NATO, despite the prosperity of its layman. In fact, the United States will not spend a dime, since the supply of complexes to Urkaina will be paid according to the scheme 2% of GDP by "independent" Europeans. In short, there is a freebie for two - for the United States and for Kuev. The rest in the promotion)))

                Yes, there is still “manenko” - they still have 18,8 billion American rubles in the NBU gold reserves. True, they will have to pay the amount exceeding these reserves for servicing the accumulated debts and interest that has accrued to them over the next couple of years))) This, of course, will not be tomorrow, although it is inevitable, lenders no longer want to hear Urkain "songs" about debt restructuring) )))

          You are mistaken, Lord!
          The US statement very upset the rulers of 404, namely the word: PART .....
          USA confirmed that PART Kiev will provide military assistance free of charge
          ....
          That is, a freebie is not 100%, but only a PART. And this part depends on the mood of Uncle Sam. And this does not please the 404th Republic at all .......

Well, if TOW was really noticed at Azov, so what - in their circle and the Javelins they got such a stir, as if it were testing an ICBM with a nuclear head. Yes, the Stingers will be even cooler. Well, deliveries to the TOV Azov, of course, through the dark channels of neo-fascists.

          Official assistance to Ukraine and the Armed Forces of Ukraine does not apply to Azov. He is officially forbidden to receive something through the state channel (precisely for his position / symbols, etc.). They have received commercial and stock injections and assistance from informal channels before.

      This, of course, is true. With a serious kneading of weather, they won’t make it, but if even one LDNR crew burns from these javelins, it will be bad. And the main crap is that the PSs are seriously going to pump Ukraine with modern weapons. And this will push all the stubborn urops, inspired by myths about the overwhelming superiority of p-Soviet weapons, to the activation of the database on the demarcation line, which will cause the intensification of retaliatory actions on the part of LDNR. The conflict will intensify with unpredictable consequences. And it is precisely this that the p-Soviet fighters for democracy are trying to achieve. And least of all we need it.
      I really want to make a mistake in my assumptions and see a news report on how ukrovoins drank a couple of javelins in a bar in Donetsk.

Any country can create a nuclear bomb for 20 years, but the United States is now creating a system to protect countries from intimidation. take away this instrument from her, little north korea is an example of this

            it’s not a matter of meaning, but of possibility. In Syria, Russia is present on earth and it is unrealistic to overthrow Assad without a clash with Russians.
            In Ukraine, there are forces (a real trained and equipped with weapons ukroarmiya) and most importantly the Americans have still hope that Russia will not have time to intervene.
            In any case, in Ukraine, the possibilities of the United States are many times higher.

              )))), LDNR’s ability is several times higher than that of Assad, and the Americans’ calculation is to draw Europe into the war depicting Russian aggression, all their propaganda is working on it now

    There is one question in this whole matter. Why do Americans shout about it so loudly? When the Syrian barmels were supplied with weapons, they did not shout about every corner. It seems to me that this is done with the aim of provoking Russia to take drastic actions in the Ukrainian direction. Now, it probably makes sense to develop economic and political relations with other regions, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Crimea. I think that Syria will not refuse to supply citrus fruits.

    Given that the cost of the rocket is comparable to the cost of the apartment, and the rocket is very compact and easy to write off, I am tormented by vague forebodings about the future fate of the Javelins in Ukraine.

    If Russia wakes up to help those groups who are against the US presence in those regions. How they will sing - and there are a lot of dissatisfied. So the United States can get an antidote, today you can also hire mercenaries, as they do.

    There is something big doubt that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will get this freebie ... with a greater probability they will be transferred to the American military acting under the guise of mercenaries and the Cheka ... what they used to crack only their ration ... and therefore rations were packaged under the guise of help to tsat years in front ... now it’s the turn of weapons, they tried to see the local, their arms and curves weren’t enough to use, according to their faces they got from the militia ... it's insulting ... a complete bummer, we decided to throw up our ... dear, like something can happen. They need triumphant reports ... and with this just nothing.

    Assistance to Ukraine from Russia, in the destruction of traitors and criminals who staged a maidan and a coup, usurped power, can also be provided free of charge, through direct deliveries of “Caliber” and “Iskander” directly to the jobs of “guided revolutionaries”.
    And if this help does not please someone in Europe or beyond the Atlantic puddle, let them figure to their nose, to whom and how to help.
    Why is it possible to hang Hussein, Gaddafi to tear apart democratically, but you can’t save the Ukrainian people from the bloody pastor, Seni-rabbit and other maidanut ?!

    Well, do not tell me please. LDNR is still not capable of war in isolation from the Russian border, does not have aviation, practically does not have mobilization potential, not to mention the depth of the rear.
