McConnell expects Senate to pass aid to Ukraine

United States Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated on Monday he is confident that the US Senate will pass the aid to Ukraine.

"The world is watching what we do in Congress these coming weeks. You can bet Vladimir Putin is watching, Hamas is watching, Iran, President Xi, North Korea, all our adversaries, they're watching closely," McConnell said from the floor of the Senate. According to Schumer, the international aid package has been on hold for a week not because Republicans oppose it but because they "injected extreme security measures into the debate."

Although McConnell recently said now is not the time to "wobble" on aid to Ukraine, House and Senate Republicans have insisted that changes to border security policy must accompany further funding for Ukraine.
