US seeks to club Ukraine and Israel aid newsbhunt


The Biden administration is pushing for Congress to take up an emergency assistance package that would pair support for Ukraine and Israel, according to a White House official.
“The president has made clear that he is going to go to Congress with a package of funding for Ukraine as well as continued support for Israel,” Jake Sullivan, the NSA, said. Last month, Congress let lapse the emergency funds it had been sending to Ukraine for its war with Russia.
The decision to tie aid for Ukraine to aid for Israel reflects the urgency of both conflicts – and a calculation that Republicans who would otherwise be loath to send more money to Ukraine may feel bound to approve such a package to support Israel.
