The US Senate also approved an aid package for Ukraine, which is “necessary to restore peace,” according to Zelensky

Zelensky was mainly looking to the United States for this. An aid package worth 57 billion euros had been on the table in the US House of Representatives for months, but this proposal was not approved. A group of Republicans in the House of Representatives sided with former President Donald Trump. He wants to become Republican president again, but he is not a supporter of providing more aid to Ukraine.

For months, the Republican-majority House of Representatives failed to pass aid to Ukraine.

The House of Representatives approved the relief package only last Saturday. The package was expanded to include aid for Israel and Taiwan, and also came with an ultimatum for TikTok to cut ties with China.

The proposal would then have to go to the Senate, where Democrats have the majority. No major problems were expected there. The proposal was finally approved by a large majority of 79 to 18. 15 Republicans and 3 Democrats voted against.

Before the vote, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell stressed the importance of aid. According to Schumer, there has rarely been a vote on something this important. McConnell called it “one of the biggest days” in his long history in the Senate.
