Ukraine Aid Funding Receives, Overwhelming Bipartisan Support, in US Senate.

The Senate approved $40 billion in additional aid for Ukraine on May 19.

President Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill into law immediately.

The total amount of U.S. aid supplied to the nation equates to $54 billion.

Ukraine has been battling an invasion of Russian forces since Feb.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that passage of the aid means that more "help is on the way.".

We Americans โ€” all of us, Democrat and Republican โ€” cannot afford to stick our heads in the sand while Vladimir Putin continues his vicious belligerence against the Ukrainian people, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, (D-NY), via 'The New York Times'.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated that passage of the aid is good for American interests.

Aid for Ukraine goes far beyond charity; the future of Americaโ€™s security and core strategic interests will be shaped by the outcome of this fight, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R-KY), via 'The New York Times'.

McConnell accompanied a delegation of Republican senators to Ukraine over the weekend.

The bill passed by the Senate provides significantly more aid than what was asked for by President Biden.

Its focus is almost equally divided on both weapons and humanitarian aid.

The humanitarian aid includes funding to assist the Ukrainian government.
