The U.S. Senate passed the bill that provides $95 billion in aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan on Feb. 12, $60 billion of which is earmarked for Kyiv.

The document must now be approved by the House of Representatives. Its speaker, Mike Johnson, earlier criticized the upper chamber’s support for the package bill, suggesting it could be blocked in the lower chamber. However, if a handful of Republican representatives join forces with the Democratic minority in the House, they could force a vote on the bill, which is likely to pass.
