House passes .6 billion for Ukraine and nothing for Covid-19

Washington, March 15 (Prensa Latina) The House has approved a massive spending bill that would rush .6 billion in U.S. aid to battered Ukraine and its European allies, after top democrats were forced to abruptly drop their plan to include fresh funds to fight off Covid-19.

The US President Joe Biden signed the new bill on Tuesday at the White House, stating it is a sign that GOPers can join Democrats to work together, but he did not mention anything concerning the rejection of the Blue Party’s request to also include a figure to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The $1.5 trillion government-wide legislation will be in function through September 30, yet due to disagreements between both parties, what was requested for coronavirus vaccines and treatments was dismissed.

The Ukraine aid includes $6.5 billion for the U.S. costs of sending troops and weapons to eastern Europe and equipping allied forces there in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin´s military operation.

Russia’s special operation in Ukraine shifts the attention of US politicians from domestic plights to focus on the approval of this provision goal-oriented to covering armament, intelligence and cybersecurity expenses.

As part of his support for Ukraine, lawmakers from both parties pushed for Joe Biden to ban imports of Russian oil, natural gas and coal, an action implemented despite its impact on fuel prices.
