U.S. Congressional Democrats agreed on a proposal to provide $39.7 billion in additional aid for Ukraine, a source familiar with the proposal said on Monday, exceeding Joe Biden’s request last month for $33 billion.
BIDEN’S “AMERICA LAST” POLICY IN FULL SWING
Joe Biden said on Monday he was willing to accept Congress passing separate bills to aid Ukraine and to provide funding for the nation’s COVID-19 response.
Biden, in a statement, called on Congress to move the Ukraine aid first, then move promptly to pass additional funding for the U.S. response to COVID. Biden had originally asked Congress to pass Ukraine aid and COVID funding in one bill.
