Ukraine will not lose US support after Congress excluded this aid from the temporary budget law, says Ukrainian ambassador Oksana Markarova.
The law was passed the day before to prevent a shutdown of government funding (shutdown). At the same time, the Republicans excluded the funds intended for Ukraine and are going to include them in a separate bill.
“The temporary resolution on the budget was adopted only for 45 days,” reassures Markarová on the social network. . According to her, Congress and the Biden administration ensured that funds from the previous budget for aid programs to Ukraine “were transitory.” “There are funds,” the diplomat emphasized, therefore, in her opinion, “the government will work” and nothing threatens the previously approved supplies of weapons and equipment.
