17:30ET/22:30 BST: Senate Vote On Ukraine Package Expected

US

The United States Senate will convene today at 15:00 ET 20:00 BST to resume consideration on the ~USD40 billion package of military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine.

  • According to the schedule of Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) the Senate will vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the bill at 17:30 ET 22:30 BST. If this passes then a final vote on the bill is likely to take place on Wednesday.
  • Last week Schumer tried to fast-track a vote but was blocked by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who wanted an inspector general to oversee Ukraine funds.
  • Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell assured reporters on Sunday that the package would be passed with strong bipartisan support this week.
