Start ATGM Javelin

The special representative of the US state Department on Ukraine Kurt Volker talked about preparing for the transfer to Ukraine of American Javelin anti-tank missiles.

Ukraine and the United States work together to transfer APU anti-tank missile complexes “javelin” (Javelin), but this takes time. This was stated by the special representative of the United States Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with Radio Liberty.

“It takes time to prepare everything: objects, where everything will be stored, methods of transmission. We are working together as they are to transport and to involve the Armed forces,” he said.

Walker also stressed that the Washington “Javelin” are defensive weapons.

“It’s a defense technique. It is useful only when there is a tank attack. Then they can be neutralized. Therefore, it is the most protective weapons, not to attack and not for use in the line of conflict. And I think Ukraine largely shares this position,” said the special representative of the United States.

Walker also noted that Washington hopes “to fill in some “blank spots” in the defense capacity of Ukraine, to prevent further escalation of the conflict”.
