Republican Senator Mitch McConnell is in no doubt about whether the U.S. should give Ukraine its fullest support.
Many members of his party have questioned whether the U.S. should be doling out so much financial support to Ukraine, given the needs of the American people.
“It’s important for the United States to help; it’s important for the free world to help,” Mr. McConnell, the minority leader, told reporters. “It’s important for the Ukrainians to win, and hopefully not many members of my party will choose to politicize this issue,” said McConnel after meeting in Kyiv with President Volodymyr.
Senator Roger Marshall, Republican of Kansas, had said earlier in a report that he had voted against the aid package because $40 billion on top of the $13 billion “we already spent is just too much right now, too much all at one time.”
“This is not some handout,” said Mr. McConnell. He had earlier argued that President Vladimir V. Putin’s campaign in Ukraine would upend the international security order and pose a grave threat to the United States’ security.
“This is not charity we’re involved in here,” he said in a report. “This is our interest — to help Ukrainians. Just like it is in the interest of NATO countries. This is not some handout. This is to prevent this ruthless thug from beginning a march through Europe.”
