U.S. Senator organizes poll on another 100 billion in aid for Ukraine
US Senator Eric Schmitt, a representative of the Republican Party, organized an unusual poll. He asked whether his followers wanted the United States to provide another $100 billion in aid to Ukraine.
Schmitt organized the vote on the social network X, formerly known as Twitter. As of 15:30, about 160,000 social media users had already taken part in the poll.
"Do you want Congress to send an additional $100 billion to Ukraine over the next 14 months?" the poll reads.
There are about three hours left in the poll. Any registered user of the social network X can cast their vote by following the link.
It is worth noting that the main Republican in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, welcomed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the US Capitol and defended US aid to Ukraine. He said that supporting Ukraine is not charity, but an investment in American interests.
