Poroshenko plans to take part in Javelin test until the end of May

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko plans to take part in the test of the U.S. anti-tank missile systems Javelin on the Ukrainian firing grounds until the end of May.

MP Iryna Lutsenko, the representative of the President in the Verkhovna Rada, said this at the meeting of the agenda-setting council in the Parliament, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Providing Ukraine with the U.S. Javelin missiles confirms the weakening of Russia in the international arena. The President of Ukraine plans to take part in the Javelin test on our firing grounds before the end of May," Lutsenko said.

As reported, in late 2017, the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump decided to sell the defensive weapons, including Javelin anti-tank missile systems, to Ukraine.
