U.S. foreign military sales, including Javelin systems, destined for Ukraine have been loaded on board the plane.
"United States Air Force Port Dawgs load a contract aircraft at Dover Air Force Base. The Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings jet carried foreign military sales destined for the Ukraine. U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) is inextricably linked to the commercial transportation industry which provides important augmentation in peace and war," the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) said on Facebook on June 21.
The U.S. side reiterates it supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the U.S. Embassy's Office of Defense Cooperation on June 16 received more than US$60 million of equipment to transfer to Ukrainian partners, including radios, ammunition, and Javelin anti-tank missiles.
What is more, the U.S. Department of State cleared the sale of 16 Mark VI patrol boats and armament worth US$600 million to Ukraine.
