Became known some details of closed-door meetings between the presidents of Ukraine and USA, which took place yesterday. Apparently Donald trump has made it clear that Washington will not supply Ukraine lethal weapons, particularly the Javelin. Petro Poroshenko said for it that, say, Ukraine itself produces effective anti-tank systems, and the US is just waiting for electronic warfare.
“We don’t get anything from anyone in the world, no lethal weapons. But we have received firm commitments from our partners in the US, we are not talking about the Javelin, we are talking about electronic warfare, to make effective the actions of my armed forces,” – said Poroshenko.
It is worth noting that earlier Poroshenko said that the U.S. Senate approved a draft law on the allocation of Ukraine on the security of 500 million dollars and the supply of “lethal weapons of a defensive nature”.
