The U.S. may run out of aid for Ukraine in a matter of weeks. Politico reports that the U.S. only has about $6 billion left from the $48 billion aid package that was passed last December. This is only expected to last until mid-Summer.
Congress is panicking that this could slow down Ukraine’s progress on the battle field. What progress? The counteroffensive that has been promised since last fall?
The White House is said to be discussing a new package even though they are also supposed to be discussing raising the looming debt ceiling. Politicians have hinted that they could shove small packages for aid here and there, even if a government shut-down looms due to the debt ceiling.
