"These devices will help Ukrainian soldiers remain vigilant and provide security to the Ukrainian people," the statement says. "This assistance helps Ukraine move toward our shared goal: building a robust, capable, and NATO-interoperable Armed Forces of Ukraine."

As UNIAN reported earlier, U.S. military assistance to Ukraine will not be limited to the supply of Javelin anti-tank missile systems, according to Stephen Blank, a Senior Fellow at the American Foreign Policy Council

"Ukraine still has great need of radio-electronic and ISR capabilities to counter Russian UAVs, fire-control capabilities, and Russian ISR," he said.

It was also reported that the draft federal budget of the United States of America for 2019 provides for the allocation of $200 million for strengthening Ukraine's security and defense.
