Sen. Mitch McConnell and GOP Lawmakers Meet Ukraine’s President in Kyiv

HeadlineMay 16, 2022

In news from Ukraine, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made a secret trip with other Republican lawmakers to meet Ukraine’s President Zelensky in Kyiv on Saturday. The trip comes as the Senate is preparing to vote as soon as Wednesday on a $40 billion military and economic aid package for Ukraine. Arms control experts are expressing concern that the massive military package could lead to a surge in arms smuggling because the U.S. has few systems in place to track the arms pouring into Ukraine.
