The State Department has announced the approval of a weapons sale to Ukraine worth around $39 million.
According to The Hill:
The State Department has informally notified Congress that it approved a potential $39 million sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, a congressional aide confirmed to The Hill.
The approval was first reported by Bloomberg, which said a formal announcement could come later Tuesday. The aide told The Hill a formal announcement should come “soon.”
The sale covers 150 Javelin missiles and 10 missile launchers, the aide said.
The approval of the sale comes as House Democrats pursue an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, in part over his handling of U.S. military aid to Ukraine.
The report indicates that the weapons are separate from the aid that was held up earlier this year.
