WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department has approved a possible military sale of 150 Raytheon Co <RTN.N> Javelin missiles and related equipment worth up to $39.2 million to Ukraine, the Defense Department said in a statement on Thursday.

The missiles were mentioned in a July 25 call between U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that has prompted congressional impeachment inquiry into Trump.
