Kiev: Ukraine at risk to lose war if US aid debate delayed

Head of the Ukrainian presidential office Andriy Yermak pointed out on Tuesday that Kiev is at risk of losing the war against Russia if the United States Congress debate on financial support for Ukraine is postponed.

"Without this direct budget support, it will be difficult...for people to really survive," Yermak said in an interview with the US Institute of Peace. "It is why it is critically important that this support will be voted as soon as possible," he stressed.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is expected to address US lawmakers later today ahead of the scheduled Senate vote on the financial package for Kiev, set to take place tomorrow. The White House previously warned that the funding for Ukraine could run out before the end of the year.
