Ukrainian soldiers fired from Javelin anti-tank missile systems in the area of the Joint Forces operation as the HQ of the JFO reported.


"Shooting from the anti-tank complex was conducted at a conditional target - a tank in a trench located at a distance of about 1.5 km. Moreover, the effectiveness of firing with the Javelin ATGM was determined in winter weather conditions - strong winds and low air temperatures,” the message says.

It is noted that this was the first shooting from the Javelin for the Ukrainian military.

"The task was completed successfully - the target of the mock enemy was hit," the headquarters said.

As it was reported in early December, 30 Javelin anti-tank missile launchers and 180 missiles arrived in Ukraine from the United States. The Ukrainian army will deploy Javelin missile systems in dangerous directions.

It is worth noting that the draft US defense budget for 2022 fiscal year provides for the allocation of $300 million for military assistance to Ukraine.
