The DSCA continued, “This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of Ukraine,” adding that “the Javelin system will help Ukraine build its long-term defense capacity to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity in order to meet its national defense requirements. Ukraine will have no difficulty absorbing this system into its armed forces.”
