In the United States, there is full support for approving funding assistance to Ukraine, and there is belief that the Senate will ultimately pass the decision, states Republican Congressman Mike Turner at a press conference in Kyiv on February 9.

According to him, the United States fully supports funding assistance to Ukraine.

"The United States fully supports this funding. We support it and we believe that there is overwhelming support in the House and the Senate, and it will get done," said the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

U.S. assistance to Ukraine

The U.S. Congress has blocked over $60 billion in funding for Ukraine requested by President Joe Biden, most of which is intended for arms supplies.

U..S assistance to Ukraine may be included in a package of money for Israel and Taiwan.

Yesterday, February 8, the U.S. Senate took a step towards considering such a package. Amendments are expected to be considered in the upper chamber of Congress today.

To approve new assistance to Ukraine, support from the House of Representatives is also needed.

It should be noted that in 2023, the United States provided Ukraine with 34 packages of military assistance. Their total value exceeded $24 billion. In particular, at the end of December, the United States allocated a new package of military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $250 million.
