On Sunday, the United States Senate overwhelmingly approved a large foreign aid package, with tens of billions of dollars from the package intended for Ukraine. Out of a total package of 95 billion dollars (about 88 billion euros), approximately 60 billion dollars (about 55.6 billion euros) would go to Ukraine, while the remainder would be shared between Israel and Taiwan.
However, despite Senate approval, the package is unlikely to become law as it must first pass through the Republican-controlled House of Representatives for further consideration. The final approval vote in the House is set to take place in the middle of the week and will require a simple majority to pass.
Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, has not indicated whether he plans to let the package go to a House vote. Additionally, it is important to note that this aid package has not yet passed through Congress as previously stated.
