U.S. President Joe Biden has applauded Congress for passing a nearly $40bn military and humanitarian assistance package for Kyiv, saying it sends “a clear bipartisan message to the world that the US stands with Ukraine”.
The bill, previously passed by the House of Representatives, passed in the Senate by an overwhelming 86-to-11 vote.
“This package will allow us to send even more weapons and ammunition to Ukraine as they defend their democracy and freedom.”
However, eleven Republican senators led voted against the package.
These include the following:
Republican Sens. Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), John Boozman (Ark.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Bill Hagerty (Tenn.), Josh Hawley (Mo.), Mike Lee (Utah), Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.), and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
