Senate may decide on aid to Ukraine before Christmas: Democratic senator names conditions

Zelenskyi is on an official visit to the United States

US Democratic Senator Chris Murphy said that the Senate could allocate aid to Ukraine and resolve the controversial issue of US border security before Christmas. This is possible if Congress postpones its winter recess to continue working on the agreement.

There are three days left before the US lawmakers' "vacation". This was reported by Reuters.

Murphy is part of a group of senators who are currently negotiating to allocate funds to help Ukraine and Israel and to make the necessary changes to immigration policy required by Republicans. He expressed confidence that the Senate could approve aid to Ukraine before Christmas if Congress postpones the upcoming recess, which is scheduled to begin in three days, to continue working on the agreement.

At the same time, according to Reuters, Republican senators call such a scenario "unlikely."

U.S. President Joe Biden commented on the situation around the aid for Ukraine blocked by the Republicans quite sharply. According to him, "history will harshly judge those who turn away from the cause of freedom." Both the American president and other representatives of the current US government warn that if Ukraine loses the war with Russia, sooner or later the Americans will have to fight the Russians. After all, the Kremlin, inspired by its victory, may decide to attack a European NATO country, and the United States will be forced to fulfill its collective defense obligations.

Earlier, the first details of Zelenskyi's meeting with U.S. senators were revealed. The President of Ukraine said in Congress that if Ukraine receives help from the United States, it will be able to win the war. At the same time, the victory of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin in the war poses a serious danger to the United States.

It was also reported that the United States has expanded sanctions against Russia: businessmen and about 200 companies have been added to the blacklist.
