Bipartisan Senate Delegation to Kyiv Urges $21 Billion in New U.S. Aid to Ukraine

HeadlineAug 24, 2023

Three U.S. senators have pledged additional military support to Ukraine during a visit to Kyiv. On Wednesday, Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal and Elizabeth Warren and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, voicing their support for President Biden’s request this month that Congress approve an additional $13 billion in military aid and $8 billion in humanitarian aid to Ukraine this year.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: “To the media reports saying this is a stalemate, you’re wrong. They breached a major line of defense yesterday.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: “We’re here to say, in a bipartisan way, we want to help them. We want to make sure they have the resources they need to be able to fight back against Vladimir Putin.”
