President Joe Biden on May 21 signed a $40 billion aid package for Ukraine.
Biden signed the bill, H.R. 7691, while traveling in Asia.
The legislation primarily features money for military assistance but also makes available $8 billion for economic support for both Ukraine and countries “impacted by the situation in Ukraine, including for programs to combat human trafficking.”
Another $5 billion is designated for helping ease food shortages in various countries. There’s also about $1.2 billion for assisting refugees.
Russia invaded Ukraine in February. Fighting continues to this day.
The House of Representatives passed the bill 368–57 and the Senate approved it 86–11. You can see how members voted here….
