US President Joe Biden has signed a government funding bill that does not include additional aid to Israel and Ukraine.

This is stated on the website of the White House.

As part of a two-step plan, the bill provides funding for congressional priorities including military construction, veterans affairs, transportation, housing and the Department of Energy through Jan. 19. Other agencies will be funded until February 2.

The spending plan does not include additional aid to Israel or Ukraine.

It will be recalled that the White House warned that the USA has exhausted 96% of the funds provided for assistance to Ukraine.

Almost a month ago, Biden sent an official request to Congress to allocate $106 billion for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, as well as to manage the flow of migrants at the border. About 61 billion is provided for the support of Ukraine.

But the speaker of the US House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, said that military aid to Ukraine and Israel will be considered separately.

It was previously reported that the US House of Representatives will still consider Biden’s request for financial assistance to Ukraine, but after Thanksgiving.
