The US Senate must approve another $40 billion by May 19.
If the Senate does not approve the project to provide assistance to Kyiv, the Pentagon may suspend arms supplies to Ukraine.
About it declared US State Department spokesman John Kirby during a briefing.
Kirby said the US Senate must approve another $40 billion by May 19. In this case, military assistance from the United States will flow uninterruptedly.
“If we don’t get powers soon, there will probably be a bubble, a period of time in which nothing will be transferred. And we would like to be sure that this can be avoided,” Kirby said.
