President Biden Seeks $33 Billion in Aid for Ukraine

President Biden Seeks $33 Billion, in Aid for Ukraine.

Reuters reports President Biden has asked Congress for $33 billion to help Ukraine amid Russia's invasion.

Reuters reports President Biden has asked Congress for $33 billion to help Ukraine amid Russia's invasion.

He's also requesting new tools to acquire assets from Russian oligarchs.

The $33 billion request includes over $20 billion for weapons and military assistance.

$8.5 billion in government assistance... ... and $3 billion for humanitarian aid.

We need this bill to support Ukraine in its fight for freedom.

The cost of this fight - it's not cheap - but caving to aggression is going to be more costly, President Biden, via statement, as reported by Reuters.

Biden says seizing assets from Russian oligarchs will also help to pay for the war effort.

However, Biden also asked for $22.5 billion in March for his administration's COVID response.

Democrats may push for that funding to be passed at the same time as the Ukraine funding.

Reuters reports that Republican congressional aides said combining war funding with the COVID response request may make it difficult to pass.

I don't care how they do it.

They can do it separately or together, but we need them both, President Biden, via statement, as reported by Reuters
