Ukraine aid bill failed to pass procedural vote in the US Senate

Dec 7, 2023

A bill to allocate a large package of financial assistance to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan failed to pass a procedural vote in the US Senate.

This is reported with reference to the video broadcast of the US Senate meeting.


It is reported that the initiative provided for the allocation of an aid package of $106 billion, including $61 billion to help Ukraine.

The law, which would have guaranteed a large aid package for Ukraine and Israel, was blocked in the Senate as Republicans insisted on stricter measures to control immigration on the US-Mexico border.

The bill received 45 votes in favor and 48 votes against. Thus, it failed to receive the 60 votes needed to be able to start a debate on the bill.

All Republicans and independent Senator Bernie Sanders voted against the bill.

As a reminder, yesterday, December 6, US President Joe Biden addressed Congress. He called for the approval of the request, which includes more than $60 billion in funding to help Ukraine.

However, the Republicans of the upper house of the US Congress refuse to support the initiative. They are demanding that the White House include more radical proposals to protect the US border.
