On Monday, the US Senate may take the next step toward approving a large package project with aid funds for Ukraine.
As Europeyska Pravda writes, Ukrainian Ambassador to the USA Oksana Markarova told about this.
The ambassador detailed what happened on Sunday procedural voting project HR 815 was supported by 67 votes out of the required 60 – senators supported the decision to stop the debate on replacing the original text of the project with the text previously proposed by Senator P.Murray.
Also before the Feb. 11 vote, the Senate rejected a request by isolationist Republican Sen. Mike Lee to reconsider HR 815, which could have stalled further consideration. 40 senators out of the required 51 voted for it.
“The next procedural step is the vote to approve the replacement of the text (51 votes are needed), which can take place no earlier than 30 hours after the end of the debate, that is, no earlier than Monday, February 12,” the ambassador said.
Oksana Markarova added that the next meeting is scheduled for February 12 at 19:00 Kyiv time.
It will be recalled that the project is being considered without the part that concerns the most painful issue about the southern border, after the initial project was blocked by the Republicans.
However, before voting on Sunday, Donald Trump spoke and against continued US aid to other countriesexcept in the form of a loan.
It is not yet known whether Republicans in the House of Representatives will agree to support the project if it is approved in the Senate.
