Ukraine will not be deprived of U.S. military aid, but amounts may grow smaller – Fedir Venislavskyi

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a bill on emergency aid to Israel, which does not include aid to Ukraine, despite the earlier plans. However, when this bill gets to the Senate, there are good chances that Ukraine will receive the promised aid, but it may not be in the amounts announced by the U.S. president.

Fedir Venislavskyi, People’s Deputy of Ukraine, Member of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence, Representative of the President of Ukraine to Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine made this statement during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

“We hope that when this bill reaches the Senate, we have a chance that Ukraine will receive this aid. But even if we consider a negative option, the bill on the aid to Ukraine will still be adopted. Today, we have the support of both Republicans and Democrats, so I personally do not expect any extremely negative results to come out during the consideration of the issue of providing financial, military and technical assistance to Ukraine. Perhaps this issue will be a little more protracted, perhaps the amounts will not be the same as those announced by U.S. President Biden. But the fact that Ukraine will not be deprived of military aid from our largest and most powerful ally, leaves no room for doubt in anyone’s mind,” explained the MP.

Fedir Venislavskyi noted that due to the upcoming U.S. elections that will be held next year, the issue of aid is taking on a political color. However, the Ukrainian politician expressed hope that in the very short term there are chances for Ukraine, together with Israel, to receive the aid declared by the U.S. President.
