US Approves Baltic Nations’ request to supply arms for Ukraine
The US State Department has approved for Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to send US-made anti-armor missiles and other weapons to Ukraine amid rising fears of a Russian invasion of the country.
Under export control regulations, a country obtains US approval to sell American weapons to a third country. The requests were made in recent weeks, and the last of the three was approved on Wednesday, Politico revealed.
The approval will allow Estonia to rush Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and Lithuania to send Stinger ground-to-air missiles, according to Reuters.
