US $95.3 billion in aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan

After months of debate within the Republican Party about the country’s role abroad, the US Senate approved a $95.3 billion aid package, including aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.

Ahead of the vote, a group of Republican senators opposed $60 billion in aid to Ukraine, saying the United States should deal with its own problems instead of sending money abroad.

In the vote, 70 senators voted “yes” and 29 voted “no”.

Almost all Democratic senators and 22 Republican senators voted “yes” on the aid package.

14 billion dollars to Israel

“Yes” voters argued that leaving Ukraine alone would “embolden Russian President Vladimir Putin” and threaten national security worldwide.

The aid package includes $60 billion to Ukraine “to support its fight against Russia,” $14 billion to Israel “to provide security assistance,” and $8 billion to Taiwan and other US allies in the Indo-Pacific region.

The package approved by the Senate will be submitted to the House of Representatives for approval.

In order for US President Joe Biden to sign the package into law, the package must also be approved in the House of Representatives.
