Final congressional approval of a $40 billion Ukraine aid bill seems certain within days. The Senate's top Republicans said Wednesday they expect strong GOP backing for the House-passed measure. That will signal a bipartisan, heightened commitment to helping thwart the bloody Russian invasion. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told The Associated Press that he expected “substantial support” for the measure and expected Senate consideration "as soon as possible." No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Thune predicted “a big vote over here” for the bill, perhaps as soon as Thursday. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says lawmakers have a moral obligation to back Ukraine.
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul is defying leaders of both parties and has single-handedly delayed until next week Senate approval of an additional $40 billion to help Ukraine and its allies withstand Russia’s three-month old invasion. The Senate was poised to debate and vote on a package of military and economic aid that underscores U.S. determination to reinforce its support for Ukraine’s outnumbered forces. Paul denied leaders the unanimous agreement they needed to proceed. He said he wanted language included that would have an inspector general scrutinize the new spending. Approval still seems certain.
