On February 13, it was officially announced that American senators supported the motion to stop the debate on the draft law on allocating large-scale aid to Ukraine and Israel.
The US Senate stopped the debate on the bill on aid to Ukraine
The Ukrainian Ambassador to the USA, Oksana Markarova, officially confirmed this information. Also, a statement on this matter is posted on the Senate website.
What is important to understand is that on February 8, the Upper House of the American Congress — the Senate — voted for a procedural decision for further consideration of the draft law on the allocation of additional aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.
In addition, as is known, on February 11, the US Senate was able to overcome the last procedural obstacle and moved closer to the final vote on the draft law on aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, which will take place in the coming days.
US Republicans are trying to block aid to Ukraine
The Republican Party of the USA is afraid that the adoption of the draft law on military aid to Ukraine will tie the hands of Donald Trump if he is elected president.
Moreover, they are worried that, in the worst case, such a development could lead to his impeachment.
Ohio Republican Sen. James Vance sent a memo to the Senate GOP office arguing that the foreign aid law could tie President Trump's hands if he later wants to cut off funding to Ukraine.
