A bill on bipartisan support for Ukraine and Ukrainian people was introduced in U.S. Congress. The relevant resolution was presented by the House of Representatives' support group of Ukraine, Voice of America reports.
The group noted that the move was indicative of the US strategic interest "in strengthening freedom and democracy in Europe". In their view, this achievement cannot be realized without "supporting Ukraine in the fight against Russian aggression".
The resolution was initiated by the co-chair of the support group of Ukraine - Marcy Kaptur, Andy Harris, Mike Quigley, Brian Fitzpatrick.
"Today, GAO issued a legal decision concluding that the Office of Management and Budget violated the law when it withheld approximately $214 million appropriated to DOD for security assistance to Ukraine. The President has narrow, limited authority to withhold appropriations under the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. OMB told GAO that it withheld the funds to ensure that they were not spent “in a manner that could conflict with the President’s foreign policy.” The law does not permit OMB to withhold funds for policy reasons", reads the message on the GAO website.
