“It is important that Congress act as quickly as possible in the new year on the President’s supplemental national security request to ensure our continued support for Ukraine and Ukraine’s ability to defend itself against Russia’s ongoing attacks,” it said.
The US Congress was unable to pass a law providing for the allocation of funds for Ukraine before the New Year holidays. Consideration of this issue may return in January.
Previously, the administration of US President Joe Biden initiated a new overall aid package for Ukraine and Israel totaling $106 billion.
Of the total amount of about $61, 4 billion were proposed to be allocated for assistance to Ukraine, including $46.1 billion for defense. However, this bill has not yet been adopted.
