The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced direct purchases in the United States ATGM Javelin

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine intends by the end of this year to purchase a batch of Javelin anti-tank missile launchers, as well as missiles for them, in the United States. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian military department.


The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced direct purchases in the United States ATGM Javelin


According to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, direct purchases of American weapons, including Javelin anti-tank systems, are planned as part of the U.S. government's FMS program (the program for the sale of arms and military equipment to foreign forces) and have already been ongoing since the beginning of 2019. At the same time, the military department refused to give the exact number of requested complexes and missiles to them, as well as the amount and timing of the proposed transaction.

Starting from 2019, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has planned direct purchases of US Javelin anti-tank missile systems and missiles for them under the program of the US government FMS

- said in a statement.

As previously reported, in early August, Kiev requested Washington to sell a "large batch of Javelin ATGMs for defensive purposes." When a decision is made on this issue, it is not reported.

It should be noted that the armed forces are already armed with ATGM data obtained in the 2018 year. Then Kiev received 37 launchers and 210 anti-tank guided missiles for them. One of the conditions for obtaining Javelin by Ukraine was a ban on the use of anti-tank systems in the Donbass. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine refused to discuss this ban, saying that the issue of control over Ukraine’s use of anti-tank systems by the United States is classified.

    Javelin for ukopitekov (do not confuse them with the Ukrainians) will create the illusion of the possibility of an unpunished offensive operation in Donbass / Lugansk .... This is very dangerous for everyone ... including in the possibility of starting a full-scale military conflict in Ukraine ....
    The fact that after it, Ukraine will cease to exist as a state - there is no doubt .... But just how many human lives will be the price for this American SHOW?

          migrant workers outside Ukraine (official) about 3 million is less than 7% of the population. At the moment, the hryvnia to the ruble is strengthening, there is economic growth, they are ready for the next winter, having accumulated a record amount of gas in underground gas storages, gasoline is getting cheaper (although it is still more expensive than in Russia). So there, not everything is as bad as they tell us from TVs.

            I now about Ukraine really only watch on TV. Not everything goes smoothly about underground gas storage and coal is running out. 7% of the working population, this is almost one in five outside the country. It's a lot. And, in general, even though I am joking, I want them to be all right. Still, they would have teenagers who set their brains back. To remember who these Slavs are, what is fascism and so on

              and why do you think they’re twisting hands of Gazprom with contracts? They are ready for winter. As for the Gaster, I think that if we were given a visa-free visa, there would be no less of our Gaster there.

              of course, fewer problems, less desire for radical changes, but here it depends a lot on us, but for now they see the evil Russia and good Europe, where Russia does not let them in (people's words, not mine)

                Yes, I do not even agree to move to the capital. What do I need that visa-free request
                With Gazprom, it seems to me because of the northern stream, our younger brothers are hustling

                        well, for example, more than $ 12 billion. "invested" in the country (food, for example, sold 18 billion, which is a record). The earnings of the workers are a very good source of currency in the country and the exsanguination of their own economy.
                        And Poland provided a very decent growth in the economy.

    Let the Ukrainians squander the budget for military gadgets that they have fancy, they’ll go broke quickly, it would be nice if they still sold some sort of an old aircraft carrier or a US destroyer.

    the end of statehood and division has been predicted by them for a thousand years, starting with the Poles, and things are still there. In addition, the overseas overlord will not give an insult to the vassal, he still needs him.

    many cannot, while others do not. I have many friends left there who want to live there, some even live well (the same programmers make good money). If you return the economy at least to the 14th, then the population will be tolerant.

    Now I will explain a little bit the situation.
    For in VO somehow strange the authors do the news. So many questions get around. A gag sometimes scribbled
    First, it is worth explaining to the readers what "direct delivery" is.
    The other day, Ukraine has applied for the first purchase of weapons in the United States. All that Kiev received before that came as military assistance. On the one hand, Ukraine did not spend money, on the other hand, sometimes it was necessary to take what they say they give (for example, radar stations with reduced capabilities, which they constantly complained about at the front). Now, Ukraine itself will buy weapons — it will be able to choose both the type of weapons and the modification.

    every whim for your money. For their money, Americans provide only what they decide.
    What does it mean? The fact that in addition to help (already thawed again), Ukraine is buying the necessary things. Those that she decides.
    What exactly will be in the first "defense order"? And why should any US ally never be limited only to military assistance?
    what will change for Ukraine now - after Kiev has submitted an application for the purchase of American weapons?

    - This is a program in which the United States sells weapons to states that are partners and allies of the United States, but not members of NATO. The program is ongoing, so if you have already been included in it, then you can regularly buy weapons - as necessary, promptly coordinating the details with the State Department. What is important - the United States also in many cases provides financing for such purchases themselves (by providing credit lines - ed.) - this is very beneficial for Ukraine.

    Leading Expert, American Council on Foreign Policy, Stephen Blank (Radio Liberty)
    He believes that, first of all, anti-tank weapons and other means are needed to combat air targets. It is necessary to prevent possible shelling from land. And minimize the possibilities of Russia for firing and electronic warfare
    - Kurt Walker told me in an interview that within the framework of new arms deliveries he proposes to provide Ukraine with a new batch of "Javelins" - since the Ukrainian military has already learned how to use them. Do you support this idea?

    - Yes, it would be good for Ukraine to have more Javelins, because, as I already mentioned, you need anti-tank weapons. Russia has a serious advantage in the number of tanks - and this will allow it to be neutralized. Therefore, something like “Javelins” - or directly “Javelins” - would be very useful to receive. This is a very correct decision.

    in general, his opinion is that you need to use both help and your own order at the same time. This will allow the country to strengthen what is needed and what cannot be manufactured in the country itself.
    Plus standard ones - eradicate corruption and establish energy security.
    He also believes in landings near Mariupol and Odessa, but more in "energy blackmail" and aggravations in ORDILO.

    I see many people like to spread any nonsense, either about Donald Cook, or about the "selected" Javelins.
