The U.S. Senate has voted to advance a $40 billion military and economic aid package for Ukraine. By a vote of 81 to 11, the Senate agreed to limit debate on the bill, setting up its passage, which is expected on Wednesday. The entire Democratic Caucus supported the measure. The 11 “no” votes came from Republicans including Senator Rand Paul, who temporarily stalled passage of the $40 billion package last week. Paul accused Senate leaders of trying to ram through the spending bill without any oversight on how the money is being spent.
