The United States Senate, after months of disagreement between Republicans and Democrats, has announced the approval of a $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

On Tuesday, February 13th, the U.S. Senate stated that American senators, with 70 votes in favor against 29 opposing votes, have agreed to send the financial aid package.

According to reports, this package includes $60 billion in assistance to Ukraine, $14 billion to Israel to bolster its military in the fight against Hamas, and $10 billion for humanitarian aid to civilians in Gaza.

This comes as President Biden has consistently emphasized the importance of aid to Ukraine and Israel despite staunch opposition from Republican hardliners in the House of Representatives.

Previously, Biden had warned that the failure to approve financial assistance to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan would pose a threat to America’s national security and urged the House of Representatives to pass the $95 billion aid bill.

It’s worth mentioning that the financial assistance from the United States has been welcomed by the Ukrainian president, who stated that this aid contributes to “closer peace and global stability.”

It should be noted that the United Nations and many countries worldwide have labeled Israel’s attacks in Gaza as “crimes” and have called for a ceasefire between the conflicting parties.
