DONETSK, May 1. /TASS/. The use of US-made Javelin anti-tank missile systems won’t give advantage to Ukrainian troops in Donbass, a spokesman for the operation command of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Eduard Basurin said on Tuesday.
"Today Ukrainian propagandists in coordination with their American mentors are using another trick - they cry in every corner about the supplies of Javelin anti-tank missile systems for Ukraine’s Armed Forces. These armaments won’t bring any real success on the battle field," Basurin said, according to the Donetsk News Agency.
Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko confirmed on Monday that Ukraine had received a batch of US-made Javelin anti-tank missile systems. He did not say however how many Javelin systems had been delivered.
