U.S. Senator Rob Portman said lethal defensive weapons that the United States will soon deliver to Ukraine could help bring peace to the country by deterring future aggression by Russia-backed separatists. Portman made the comments in an interview with RFE/RL's Rostyslav Khotin on April 2 in Prague, a day before heading to Ukraine on a fact-finding tour. The United States has approved the sale of Javelin antitank missiles and launch units to Ukraine in a deal worth about $47 million.
