It is expected that on Thursday, August 10, the US presidential administration Joe Biden releases its request for billions of dollars in additional funding for arms and other aid to Ukraine. This publication reports Politico citing two informed sources.
This request is expected to include aid to Taiwan and money to replenish disaster relief funds.
Sources of the publication did not provide additional details regarding the amount of the request or specific purposes.
Politico writes that the request will “heat up” an already ongoing public funding battle in the U.S. Congress, where many conservatives remain “deeply skeptical” about giving Ukraine more money without a fuller consideration of how aid is being spent to date.
Public funding expires September 30th.
Representatives of the House and Senate expect that funds for Ukraine, Taiwan and disaster relief can be accepted with additional costs that will prevent a shutdown, writes Politico.
The publication notes that overcoming this time period is likely to be difficult, requiring a large bipartisan rise.
