To become law, the bill must be approved by both houses of Congress and signed by the President.

As Ukrinform reported, the U.S. House of Representatives on Saturday passed H.R. 8035 Ukraine Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024, which provides more than $60 billion in support for Ukraine.

The vote took place on Saturday as part of a package of four bills that provide foreign aid to U.S. allies and partners.
