Both houses of U.S. Congress approve bill envisaging $12B in aid for Ukraine

The U.S. House of Representatives – following the Senate - passed a short-term government funding bill to avert a "shutdown" of the government and provide more than $12 billion in security and economic aid for Ukraine.  

The voting took place on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

230 legislators voted in support of the document, while 201 voted against it.

The draft law was not supported mainly by representatives of the Republican Party, whose claims were based on insufficient funding for U.S. border security, restoration of supply chains, and the fight against inflation.

As reported, the U.S. Senate on Thursday passed a short-term government financing bill by an overwhelming majority (72 to 25). Now the document will be submitted to the head of the White House for signature.
