The U.S. House of Representatives urgently needs to approve a $95 billion aid bill for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, according to a statement by President Joe Biden.

He notes that the bill is crucial for U.S. national security. The document will allow to continue efforts in defending Ukraine's freedom and will provide Israel with everything necessary to protect against Hamas militants.

"I applaud the bipartisan coalition of Senators who came together to advance this agreement, and I urge the House to move on this with urgency. We cannot afford to wait any longer," Biden emphasizes.

According to him, the U.S. can no longer afford to wait, as the cost of inaction increases every day, especially in Ukraine.

"Already, we are seeing reports of Ukrainian troops running out of ammunition on the front lines as Russian forces continue to attack and Putin continues to dream of subjugating the Ukrainian people," the president adds.

He clarifies that if the U.S. does not stand against tyrants who seek to conquer their neighbors, the consequences for the country's national security will be significant, and allies will take note.

"It is time for the House to take action and send this bipartisan legislation to my desk immediately so that I can sign it into law," Biden says.


Today, February 13, the U.S. Senate approved a bill to support Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan with $95 billion. In particular, over $60 billion is allocated for Ukraine.

To become law, the bill still needs to be approved by the U.S. House of Representatives and signed by President Joe Biden.

House Speaker Mike Johnson has already spoken out against such an initiative. He may not bring the bill to the floor of the lower chamber of Congress for consideration.
