"The situation is extremely complicated": Markarova urges not to look for "betrayal" in US actions
The issue of the United States' assistance to Ukraine is moving in the right direction. This is a complicated process in an election year.
This was stated by Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Oksana Markarova during a national telethon. The diplomat emphasized that there is no reason to talk about "betrayal".
"The situation is extremely complicated, but there are no grounds to talk about 'betrayal'. Everything is moving in the right direction, but it is a complicated process in an election year. We are doing everything to ensure that the draft law on assistance to Ukraine is approved. And the chances are extremely high," Markarova said.
She reminded that the media recently reported that the House of Representatives had registered a bill on aid to Israel only. However, in order for the bill to become law, both houses of Congress must vote for it, and then it must be signed by the president.
"Therefore, we expect a bipartisan bill to be published, which will include Ukraine, Israel, border issues, and other issues. We hope that the next day after the publication, the consideration of the bill will begin," Markarova said.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the US Congress is in dispute, which is delaying the approval of the aid package for Ukraine. The head of the House Democratic Caucus, Pete Aguilar, said that Republicans are refusing a bipartisan agreement that would strengthen the protection of the southern border of the United States, support Israel and help Ukraine.
The White House expressed confidence that the decision-making process on additional aid for Ukraine had not failed and that the decision would ultimately be positive, as bipartisan support for Ukraine remained in Congress.
