The United States Senate has overwhelmingly passed a $95 billion (€88 billion) foreign aid package with allocations for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. The bill, approved with a vote of 79-18, was previously passed by the House of Representatives. This significant development follows months of deliberation and discussion on the US’s role in international conflicts.

President Joe Biden has expressed his intention to sign the bill into law on Wednesday, immediately initiating the process of providing military support to Ukraine, which is facing challenges on its frontlines against Russia. The aid package also includes $26 billion (€24 billion) designated for Israel’s wartime assistance and humanitarian aid for Palestinians in Gaza.

Furthermore, $8 billion (€7 billion) has been earmarked to address Chinese threats in Taiwan and the broader Indo-Pacific region. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell collaborated to prioritize the passage of this legislation, consolidating support for aid to Ukraine and Israel to ensure its approval by the Senate.
