CBS News reports Paul has stalled an additional $40 billion in U.S. aid for Ukraine to assist in the fight against Russian invaders.

The Republican KY senator was the lone holdout in the Senate vote to approve the aid, which requires unanimous consensus.

No matter how sympathetic the cause, my oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America, Sen.

Rand Paul, (R-KY), via CBS News.

We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy, Sen.

Rand Paul, (R-KY), via CBS News.

Though Paul is calling for an inspector general to analyze the spending, passage of the bill is expected.

Senate leaders on both sides of the aisle criticized Paul's move.

It's clear from the junior senator from Kentucky's remarks, he doesn't want to aid Ukraine, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, (D-NY), via CBS News.

All he will accomplish with his actions here today is to delay that aid, not to stop it, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, (D-NY), via CBS News.

They're only asking for the resources they need to defend themselves against this deranged invasion.

And they need this help right now, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R-KY), via CBS News.

It bears directly on America's national security and vital interests that Russia's naked aggression not succeed and carries significant costs, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R-KY), via CBS News.

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated in an interview that oversight of the bill "is critical" and is already included in its language.

That's why the package already includes millions of dollars to support additional oversight measures, Jen Psaki, Former White House Press Secretary, via CBS News.

... including additional funding for existing inspectors general and we encourage all senators to promptly pass the bill as it stands, we feel what's in there [is] sufficient, Jen Psaki, Former White House Press Secretary, via CBS News
