A The North American House of Representatives approved the sending of 60.8 billion dollars (around 57 billion euros) in aid to Ukraine, as part of the fight against the Russian invasion that began in February 2022.

According to Sky News, Democrats and Republicans joined forces to put an end to the impasse that had lasted for several months.

There were 311 votes in favor of this aid package and 112 votes against.

This military and economic assistance, which is the result of months of tense negotiations, ended up receiving support from both parliamentary groups and must now be approved in the Senate, where a first vote could take place as early as Tuesday.

The aid package for Ukraine is the most significant of a set of three laws being voted on in a rare Saturday session, which includes support for Israel and Taiwan, totaling 95 billion dollars (89 billion euros) .

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked the Americans for their decision. “Democracy and freedom will always have global significance and will never fail as long as the United States helps protect them,” he wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
