The United States Senate Passes Aid Package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan

The United States Senate has passed a long-delayed multibillion-dollar aid package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, paving the way for new weapons deliveries to Kyiv as soon as this week.

The Democratic-controlled Senate passed the measure, held up for months by right-wing Republicans and part of a four-bill package, by 79 votes to 18 late on Tuesday night in the US.

“I will sign this bill into law and address the American people as soon as it reaches my desk tomorrow so we can begin sending weapons and equipment to Ukraine this week,” President Joe Biden said in a statement shortly afterward.
