Ukraine, the US approves a new aid package. Zelensky: “Important”

Green light from the US House of Representatives for mainly military aid to Ukraine worth $61 billion, Israel worth $26 billion and Taiwan and the Indo-Pacific region worth eight. Approval came with 311 votes in favor and 112 against, therefore with a large majority, after months of political conflict between Democrats and Republicans, particularly regarding support for Kiev. Ukraine is involved in a conflict with Russia, while Israel conducts military operations in the Gaza Strip and is also experiencing a phase of high tension in relations with Iran. Taiwan, de facto independent, is considered a separatist province by China. The measures approved by the Chamber should be submitted to the Senate in the coming days. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he was “grateful” for Washington’s vote and added: “Democracy and freedom will always have global significance and will never be lost as long as America helps us protect them.” The interpretation given by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marija Zakharova is the opposite. According to the manager, US military aid constitutes “direct support for terrorist activities”.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba thanked the United States for the aid to Kiev approved yesterday by the House of Representatives. “A bad day for Putin,” Kuleba wrote in X, adding that “everyone who made this decision a reality made the right choice.” Now, the minister continued, Ukraine is waiting for the bill to also be approved by the US Senate. The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, also thanked the United States for the aid to Kiev approved yesterday by the House of Representatives. «We achieved the decision we expected, regarding the US aid package that we fought so hard for. It is a very important package, the effects of which will be felt by our frontline soldiers and our cities,” Zelensky said in a video message.
