U.S. Responds To New Russian Nuclear Weapons Approving Sale Of Javelin Anti-Tank Missiles To Ukraine

Illustrative image

Washington has responded to an announcement of new Russian nuclear weapons on March 1 by approving a sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine.

On March 1, the US Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced a formal certification for the $47m deal, which includes 210 Javelin missiles, 37 command launch units as well as training, logistics and support.

The DSCA said the goal is to “help Ukraine build its long-term defence capacity to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity”.

Ukrainian President Petr Poroshenko reacted to the move in Facebook:

“I’m thankful to President Donald J. Trump and his entire team for supporting Ukraine in this important and historic decision . . . Only unity and solidarity will stop the Russian aggressor and preserve the Free World from his maniac ambitions!”

The delivery of 210 missiles will not be able to change the balance of power between pro-government forces and local militais in eastern Ukraine. However, it is clear this move will negatively impact the US-Russian relations.

    This will not disturb in any important case the russian tanks to roll over the whole ukrainian army! – Since they have systems to repell such missiles!
    however the US businessmen will be happy to sell again some of its stuff!
    In the other hand, if the next ammunition depot in Ukraine will explode it may even be possible that all these wunderfull gadgets will be insides…

        Without NATO aircover the Ukronazis lose and Russia (including Crimea is a No Fly Zone for NATO). If open hostilities break out all of Ukraine and Moldova, Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Black Sea will be No Fly Zone for NATO.

          • Joe

            I wonder how the EU will react because it is not just the Gas TO Ukraine but THROUGH Ukraine meaning no gas goea through to EU through Ukraine.

            What other pipeline already served EU from Russia?

      It’s used against fortifications and as sabotage/terrorism in front line towns.

    • Vince Dhimos

      Yes, In fact Russia has those Terminator tank support vehicles that can repel attacks. If they bring them in, the Javelins won’t do much harm. But a lot of Javelin users gonna die.

      • Joe

        Russia may have them but not all over the places and targets may not be tanks but bunkers or other armoured vehicles. Just watch videos of how Houthis use ATGMs will give you an idea how effective is the ATGM to empower such a team .

        So it is really an escalation.

        • Bob

          It is an escalation – but it’s still just an advanced tactical field weapon, it won’t change the political motivations of the ethnic Russians in the east. The Ukrainians are also notoriously corrupt and incompetent – the US previously gave them several very expensive and advanced counter-mortar field radars – they were captured intact by the eastern militias in a matter of months.

    • TheLulzWarrior

      What is disturbing is seeking to make the Donbas part of the “ukraine” again under pretences that some sort of political reconciliation is possible.

      Far past time to destroy, not preserve, the artificial country known as the “ukraine”!

    • FlorianGeyer

      ” So, do you understand how “smart” Putin is ???? XD. ”

      We do understand how smart you are though Serious. :)

    • ZP

      you sound like velocicrapptor, Jenns holmes, Salomon Kuprascek and the rest the anti-Putinists so an Ukrainian (the fake nation) sounds logical. I have no beef with anyone but to blame Putin for this mess the world has found itself in is quite stunning when you think about it. Putin has been trying to talk to the West since early 2000, expressed the worries of Russians so many times but like he was talking to a wall, maybe they were expecting more Yeltsin-like reactions from the “defeated” Russian? It is now all in the history and the new reality is that the world is again multi-polar whether you like it or not and calling Mr Putin a pion of the Deep State is laughable

      • Serious

        What is laughable is trying to “talk” with the west. Everybody knows that the west is a terrorist entity. Collaborating with a terrorist entity makes you a terrorist.

        Not my fault if Putin is scared. He still supply Europe with gas and oil so that Europe joins USA and make sanctions against Russia;

        Excuse me but that is just laughable.

        • ZP

          Only now is it in plain sight for everyone to see what West stands for which is the same thing it always stood for, they were hiding behind this screen of human and civil rights and humanitarian help. Collaborating with USA is still better than the hot war where we all are at the brink of our peril, do you think it is unrelated that USA is building up NATO forces in the Baltics, Poland, Germany and to some extent Balkans? Everything is connected, Ukraine, Syria, N Korea, South China Sea and the development is not favourable to USA/West (Syria, Turkey is a significant blow) so it is better not to provoke that last step: open/hot war.
          Laugh if you will but a wast majority of the population is holding their breath…

    Of course, I said to invade east and south Ukraine while the Ukraine army was weak and inexistant. But, people said to me “No, Putin is a chessmaster”. XD.

    That’s why you need democracy and freedom of speech. To expose deceptive people.

    So Putin do you still like Trump ???? XD. Maybe Putin works for USA.

  • JEinCA

    As The Saker has pointed out the Javelins don’t change much on the ground. The Kiev Junta will lose in any conflict with Russia and most likely lose any offensive against the Donbass rebels especially if Russia equips them with the latest technology and aids with advisors and special forces.

    • Brad Isherwood

      If the West Ukraine morons cross the contact line into the Donbass,
      It’s probable they get snared in different areas scale cauldrons.
      Donbass Militias can study units to see who is operating the Javelins – assign Recon/Sniper teams to nail them,….capture units.
      Ukraine military gave up lots of equipment to the Donbass resistance…plus some parades of prisoners : )

      I chuckled at that as well Hrky :)

  • Serious

    Funny. USA is providing Ukraine with weapons what Russia didn’t do with Russia. XD.

    Of course, when I said give weapons to Syria, people say “No, Putin is a chessmaster”. XD.

    Don’t be delusional. The chessmasters are the deep state.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    Russia should intercept the shipment just like israhell supposedly does with hezb in syria

    Don’t worship Putin, worship real democracy and freedom of speech. Worship your brain.

    Of course, people worship Trump, Putin, the west. They also worship the abrahamic god. People who used to worship the Sun are most logical and sensible as the Sun gives and takes life. Without the Sun, no life.

    But, people worship a fake abrahamic god that they had never seen in their entire life. XD. Also, they worship Trump the stupid insecure goy and Putin the “taugh” guy. XD.

  • Orcbuu

    Lets see how many of them will end up in the Hands of DPR, LPR some soldiers sell weapons very generously to them for almost NOTHING.

    • EoF

      This is also very probable.

      There’s no real need to get into a same traps. Such smaller yield precision munitions did not win war these days. Determination and perseverance will in modern warfare beyond the Iraq’s invasion.
      It’s only a pocket money for the US MIC as well the officials that tasked to wrote the checks for the payments.

    Raytheon /Lockheed Martin probably want contract cycling on Javelin to move.
    Means US MOD or whoever has the old shelf life stuff to move…wants Ukraine or whoever to get the
    Stuff out the door.

    Not that China or Russia need to get their hands on Javelin which is old tech now.
    They could however broker the equipment to others who can knock their own copies off.
    http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/china-has-its-very-own-javelin-tank-killer-missiles-24321

    Does Iran have their own knock off of Javelin?

  • François

    Responding to Russian new nuclear weapons announcement with Javelin anti tank missile? At that level, the US have already lost the war:)….

    • Serious

      USA only finds justifications to make sanctions against Russia. Of course, Putin still collaborate with his “western partners”. XD. That’s so pathetic.

      Of course, if I was Putin, I will stop gas and oil supplies to Europe, invade east and south Ukraine to save russians there, give Assad latest weapons and explose US bases in Syria with Kalibr missiles.

      Moreover, I will expose 9/11 lies, that USA creates ISIS to invade Syria and that the west is supporting terrorism in order to invade countries.

      And, create an alternative olympic games.

      That’s the appropriate response to take. But, Putin does the exact opposite. So, I don’t know why people are follwing Putin. Follow Putin and you will be like Syrians and east Ukraine.

      • François

        I don’t think Putin is really collaborating with its “Western partners”, this guy is just “playing chess”, Russia is not totally ready yet to get the upper hand in case of war with NATO.
        That’s why Putin is gaining time, as strategy. Remember it took 4 years before Russia intervened in Syria, cause new weapons were to be designed.
        So in our case I think Putin is rather wise, having a long term strategy

        • Serious

          You are delusional. First, Putin didn’t give S-300 to Syria, weapons which were ready. Seconf, Putin didn’t interven in Syria to let ISIS expand, so that USA take half of Syria.

          So, excuse me, but I don’t trust Putin at all.

          • François

            What matters is the result. Look at Syria now: ISIS is practically defeated, and SAA is gaining ground every day.
            Kurdistan? We both know this entity has no future, because it will never be able to export “its” oil, and between Syria and Turkey they truly are in a very bad shape.
            Let’s wait a couple of years and see final result, ok?

          • Serious

            Syria is in ruins. 1 million dead, everything is destroyed. Half Syria in USA hands. The north-west in Turkey hands.

            And don’t talk me about “defeating ISIS”. ISIS was the proxy for USA to invade Syria. Putin let ISIS grow cause surely Putin works with USA or have “advisers” who works for CIA.

            And for “rojava”, you can say thanks to Erdogan. Otherwise, you will have “rojava” already build.

            So, please, don’t lie to yourself because you will not stop being deceived by the reality.

          • François

            Well, every war causes ruins. Putin is surely not perfect, I admit. But in who else should we better rely on ? …

          • Serious

            Of course, people are worshiping Putin because there is nobody else. So, if it happens that Putin is a big joke, we are all finished and will live under a global dictatorship of mediocrity, lies and manipulation.

            If that happens, I move to Argentina.

          • François

            It’s not a matter of worshiping. It’s just that this guy managed to frustrate Zionist plans in Syria-Lebanon. Second, many people in the world are fed up with US hegemony.
            But at the same time, YES Putin is part of the system, he’s working for the NWO, and his job is to achieve Eurasia project.
            Many videos are available online on that topic.

          • Vince Dhimos

            Part of the final result is that the rest of the MENA countries and the world will note that the US made an alliance with the Kurds and then when the Turks started killing them, the US stood down. They note that Russia does not behave that way, and that will make them trust Russia as the only honest broker. In the long run, the US loses big time.

  • Nosferatu

    With the new russian weapons it is clear the if Ukronazis attack Donbass, Russia can liberate whole of Ukraine and US will not dare to start WW3 because of UA

    • Anti_Globalista

      The problem is you are responsible for what you take over. You need to feed, employ and take care of the population that is indoctrinated to hate you. Russia should leave so called “Ukrainians” (mainly converted Russians) to enjoy “western values” for a while, until they have enough of it, and beg to come back together with their motherland. Russia can’t do what Americans did in Lybia and Iraq – burn it down and leave, because it is on its border, which means you need to maintain some resemblance of stability at least.

      Having said that, i think that at the same time Russian Forces should be merciless towards anybody harassing Donbas population. Destroy them, and if west complains tell them that you are defending civilian population from evil Nazis in Kiev.

      • Nosferatu

        Not even half Ukranians are anti-russian. When in 2004 US did the orange revolution in Kyjev, right the next election the pro-russian Janukovych was elected.

    So Ukraine prefers to spend $47 Million on military equipment from the US over spending the same amount of money on ordinary Ukrainians who simply wish to remain warm in their homes. Easy to understand why a significant majority of the Peoples of Ukraine want Poroshenko and his cronies gone although it’s difficult to see where honest and independent replacement leadership can come from at this moment :( (((((

  • Icarus Tanović

    What a stupid move.

  • Rivman

    “However, it is clear this move will negatively impact the US-Russian relations.” Which means the Ukees are spending 47M for nothing. Trump has his nose up Putin’s arse so far, it’s hard to believe he can breathe.

    • Sinbad2

      Ukraine won’t pay directly, US weapons sales are highly subsidized by US taxpayers.
      The US is a capitalist system for the people, but a socialist system for the MIC.
      90% of US aid is in the form of weapons, the money goes diractly to Lockhead et al.

  • gustavo

    The delivery of these weapons to Ukrania was before Putin speech. So, do not try to make us believe that these delivery now is the answer of USA to Putin. The plan made since some time ago for USA is to create a militar war between Ukrania and Russia, maybe to justify a global attack to Russia.

    • Nexusfast123

      Then Russia and China respond and human civilization is kaput.

    The Ukrainians will sell them on the black market, and the Taliban will be using them against NATO before the year is out.

  • Naija Lolade

    foolish trump and satan yahoo.. This will further divide Ukraine into Western part and eastern. while the western will follow their neo-nazi mentality and the Eastern part remain autonomous . I don’t know why these foolish ppl don’t use common sense. Ukraine is not up to 30 years yet they fall for this.. It’s terrible. Pushing puppets to attack Russia wont work. it only worked during world war 2. The more you push, the more you loss ground.. Aren’t these crooks learning anything from history ?

    Meanwhile TOW missiles have been defeated in Syria. By installing a very cheap light bulb will defeat this javelin.. These guys are living in the past I swear down… handing over javelin is just sending a wrong message to Russia and it will get the right reply.

    The message here is, they are ready to continue pushing puppets until last blood.. Even as it’s they want to remove Poroshenko and install the Obidient Sakaasvili since they know he’s the only one that can do as they say 100%.. Again it means pushing puppets.. For how long ?

    I don’t see how the selling of 200 javelins to ukraine is the response to russia new nuclear weapons. seems somehow an asymmetrical response to say the least.

  • horst

    …like in other cases,…this will for sure open the option for those weapons to come to Syria (regardless of potential other ways) via Ukraine,…because some Ukrainians hate Russians so much,…and in eastern Ukraine is this pesky ceasefire,…if it means stealing it from their soldiers equipment so be it.
