This was stated by the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Senate, Chuck Schumer, Forbes Breaking News reports.
“This will be an insult to our Ukrainian friends who are fighting with their lives against Russian autocracy, which could be a turning point for them if the West does not live up to its commitments. Ronald Reagan would be turning over in his grave if he saw that his own party allowed Vladimir Putin to roll across Europe,” the congressman said.
Thus, Schumer criticized the Republicans in the US Senate blocking the allocation of a new package of financial assistance to Ukraine. Despite the fact that the Republican minority leader in the House of Congress, Mitch McConnell, previously advocated support for Kyiv, he changed his position due to the lack of plans in the bill to change border security policy.
Earlier, US Presidential National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan called USA congress support assistance to Kyiv. “The stakes are too high and the consequences too serious to allow a minority in Congress to hold Ukraine’s funding hostage,” a White House official said.
