$40 Billion Ukraine Aid Bill Passes Senate

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.8

A bill to approve an additional $40 billion in military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine passed Senate on Thursday. The proposal was delayed by Sen. Rand Paul who called for language appointing a special inspector general to oversee the distribution of the money.  He and 11 Republicans voted against the bill.  Biden said, “These weapons and equipment will go directly to the front lines of freedom in Ukraine, and reiterate our strong support for the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their country against Russia’s ongoing aggression.”
