US President Biden is prioritising aid to Ukraine.
Biden says he is prepared to accept that bills for aid to Ukraine aid and funding for US COVID-19 move separately in Congress.
He called for Congress to pass Ukraine aid immediately. And then to quickly move on to coronavirus funding.
A bit of US politics housekeeping. Let’s see if Biden is successful.
ADDED – latest appears to be that the Democrats have raised their Ukraine funding request to $39.8 bn. A House vote could take place as soon as Tuesday.
