Zelensky Visits Capitol HIll for More Funding After Republicans Refuse

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky visited Congress and the White House in a quest to gain more military assistance despite the Republican Party’s refusal to his growing demands. He also met with the US Senate on Tuesday, December 12, 2023. 

Republicans have begun questioning whether Ukraine should even continue fighting against Russia, signaling internal turmoil between the parties.

Over the last two years, the US has been actively involved in providing Ukraine with weapons and ammunition. US president Joe Biden is also a staunch advocate of Ukraine’s actor turned president Zelensky, labeling the war between Russia and Ukraine as part of a global struggle between “democracies and aggressive autocracies.” President Biden said after holding a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that he “will not walk away from Ukraine.”

Last week, Republican senators blocked a White House request for $106 billion in emergency aid meant for Ukraine and the Israeli Regime.

Congressional Republicans have opposed additional aid for Ukraine unless it is combined with funding for strict “U.S.-Mexico border security changes.” These demands are being met with opposition by the Democrats and the White House.
