U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Intelligence and Budget Committees, issued the following statement after the Senate passed a stand-alone $40 billion aid package for Ukraine.
“Ukrainians are still fighting and Americans want to help them win. I’m glad that Washington is dropping the politics and passed a stand-alone aid bill. Zelensky needs to defeat Putin and to do that his men need all the weapons, ammo, and intel they can get. The U.S. needs to keep Zelensky’s men well-supplied for as long as it takes. Our policy still needs to be ‘if they can shoot it, we can ship it.’”
