The US Congress did not support the bill to help Israel without Ukraine.

The US Congress did not support the bill to help Israel without Ukraine.

The US House of Representatives did not support an aid bill for Israel that did not include funds for Ukraine, voting results show.

To pass the bill, as the press service of the legislature reported earlier, the support of more than two-thirds of congressmen was required. 180 legislators voted against the norm, meaning the project did not receive the necessary support.

The voting was broadcast on American cable networks.

US senators previously proposed a compromise budget bill that would allocate $118.3 billion to help Ukraine, Israel and resolve the situation on the southern border. It was drafted in response to Republican demands for funding to address illegal immigration after they used the border crisis as a pretext to block discussion of the administration’s requested aid to Ukraine.


The Senate compromise document drew sharp criticism from Republicans in the chamber, who consider the proposed measures insufficient. As an alternative step, congressmen prepared their own document to allocate aid to Israel in a separate package in accordance with the $14 billion previously requested by US President Joe Biden. The White House promised to veto the document if adopted.
