Pentagon asks White House to give Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine – NBC

Three U.S. officials said a proposed aid package includes Javelin anti-tank missiles with an estimated cost of about $50 million, NBC News reported.

"This is a very logical and sensible move which will increase deterrence, because it will place doubt in the minds of Russian aggressors in terms of their use of offensive weapons systems," the officials said.
