U.S. Congress discussing yearlong Ukraine aid package of up to $100B – WSJ

Pro-Ukraine supporters from both parties in the U.S. Senate want to pass a much bigger yearlong aid package for Ukraine in the coming weeks, with a price tag between $50 billion and $100 billion.

That's according to The Wall Street Journal, Ukrinform reports.

Senators from both parties told the media outlet that they see more sense in one large package than in several smaller ones. Such a package could be passed between October 16, when the Senate returns from recess, and November 17, when the current temporary spending law expires.
