Volodymyr Zelensky wants the United States to provide more funding to help his forces stand up to Russia, and has invited former US President Donald Trump to visit Ukraine to see for himself the scale of the conflict, Reuters reported, citing news. bg
Joe Biden, President of the United States pressed Congress to pass a $106 billion additional spending bill, with most of the money going to bolster Ukraine’s defenses and the rest being split between Israel, the Indo-Pacific region and the border authorities.
The Republican-led US House of Representatives instead presented its own funding plan. Last week, he passed a bill to provide $14.3 billion in aid to Israel, but did not include any increase in aid to Ukraine.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate majority leader, said he would not bring the bill to the House floor for a vote, and Biden vowed to veto it.
