Glasnost Gone

May 22nd, President Poroshenko of Ukraine, watched the Ukrainian army training with the American Javelin – anti-tank missile. All went well. More pics & info.

“Finally this day has come! Today, on May 22, for the first time in Ukraine, the trial of Javelin anti-tank complexes of the third generation took place. I am convinced that today, combat capabilities of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, missile troops and artillery have grown significantly,” said the President.

Poroshenko said that “it is defensive weaponry that will be used only in case of the offensive on the positions of Ukrainian troops by the Russian Federation.”

Part of the deal with the US supplying the weapons, was for the launchers to only be used, should Russian led forces in Ukraine, launch a major offensive, or try to advance further into Ukraine. Meaning, they are to be used as defensive weapons.
