Russia-Ukraine Crisis Latest Updates: US Congress Passes Budget Including $14 Billion For Ukraine

The US Congress passed a budget that includes $14 billion for Ukraine.

When the government ran out of money at midnight on Friday, thousands of workers would have been sent home without pay. Lawmakers had to come up with a way to keep the government open.

After three weeks of fighting, the US Congress passed a huge spending plan for 2022 on Thursday. It included almost $14 billion in humanitarian and military aid to war-torn Ukraine.

When the government ran out of money at midnight on Friday, thousands of workers would have been sent home without pay. Lawmakers had to come up with a way to keep the government open.

Toward the end of the week, senators in the legislative body’s upper chamber agreed with their House of Representative counterparts, who approved the $1.5 trillion package on Wednesday.

In a statement, Chuck Schumer, the leader of the Senate Democrats, said that “we’re keeping our promise to help Ukraine as they fight for their lives against the evil Vladimir Putin.”

“With nearly $14 billion in emergency aid, Congress will approve more than twice as much money as the administration had asked for.”

Ukraine is going to try to get aid again.

Ukrainian authorities said Friday that the Red Cross would help them set up several evacuation and humanitarian aid routes.

The top priority was still getting people out of Mariupol and getting help for its hungry, thirsty, freezing, and scared people.

On Friday, Ukraine is trying again to get aid into Mariupol and bring people out to Zaporizhzhia. As aid and rescue convoys were hit by Russian shelling, many previous attempts have failed.

Vihrenchuk said buses would go to several suburbs of Kyiv on Friday. They would bring people into the city and bring aid to those who were left behind.

She also said that new humanitarian corridors would be set up around the cities of Kherson in the south, Chernihiv in the north, and Kharkiv in the east. These cities are all cities that have been occupied or are under attack by Russia.

Russia has been warned by the United States not to get its hands on foreign company assets.

In response to Vladimir Putin’s attack on Ukraine, many US and international businesses have said they will stop working in Russia or leave the Russian market. The White House is urging Russia not to take steps to seize the assets of these businesses.

Jen Psaki, the press secretary, was responding to reports in Russian and other media about a plan to nationalise the property of big foreign companies that are leaving Russia. She said that this plan would be bad for the businesses.

A move like this would be a throwback to 1917, says Psaki on Twitter Thursday. She says that Russia will have to deal with investor distrust for years. She says that Russia could also be sued by businesses that have their property taken away by the government.

Psaki says the White House stands with American businesses that are making “tough decisions” about the future of their businesses in Russia, and that the White House stands behind them.

If foreign companies that have said they’re leaving Russia because of Ukraine’s crisis want to leave, the government and the general prosecutor’s office are considering a plan to nationalise them. This is what the Russian newspaper Izvestia said Thursday. The newspaper said it had a list of more than 60 companies, including IKEA, McDonald’s, Apple, Microsoft, IBM, and Porsche, as well as many other companies.
