Offering assistance to Ukraine, as well as pushing back against other Russian moves in eastern Europe, is in line with President Donald Trump's National Security Strategy, which was released in December. The fighting has continued in the eastern part of Ukraine. "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", agency officials wrote in their congressional notification statement on the Javelin deal.

The Verkhovna Rada also called on the parliaments of foreign states and the parliamentary assemblies of global organizations to condemn Russia's actions against the territorial integrity of Ukraine, to condemn the violation by the Russian occupation administration of fundamental human rights and freedoms in occupied territories and to assist in the liberation of Ukrainian citizens, who are illegally held by Russia on groundless and politically motivated charges.
