US Senate Passes Military Aid Package for Ukraine

The US Senate voted in favor of sending $95 billion in military aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

On Tuesday evening, April 23, the US Senate passed the $95 billion military aid package to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan on a 79-18 bipartisan vote, with almost $61 billion going to Ukraine.

The bill must yet be signed by US President Joe Biden.

President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, expressed his gratitude to the United States Senate, on both sides of the aisle, for approving the vital aid to Ukraine, adding: “This vote reinforces America’s role as a beacon of democracy and the leader of the free world.

I am also grateful to all Americans who continue to support Ukraine and recognize that the historical significance of this bill extends beyond politics.”

The Mayor of Kyiv, Vitaliy Klychko, commented on this aid decision: “Important news. The process of approval by the US Congress of new aid to Ukraine has been completed. It is vitally necessary at the front, necessary to protect our cities and infrastructure from the attacks of Russian barbarians. The partnership between the USA and Ukraine is very important and should really work!”.

The bill was passed on April 20 by the US House of Representatives and was waiting to be passed by the Senate and signed by President Joe Biden.
