The US Senate Approves Ukraine Aid Package

The United States Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of approving a huge foreign aid package on Sunday that would send tens of billions of dollars to Ukraine. However, it is still unclear whether the package will even advance to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Out of a total package of 95 billion dollars, up to 60 billion dollars would go to Ukraine. The rest would be shared between Israel and Taiwan.

The Senate will vote on the final approval of the package in the middle of the week, when it will require a simple majority to pass. The votes were divided 67–27, making it easily arranged for approval. However, the package is unlikely to make it into law, as the Republican-majority House of Representatives is unlikely to pass it. The Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, hasn’t said if he even plans to let the package go to a House vote.

Therefore, the future of the aid package for Ukraine remains uncertain as it moves through the legislative process.
