Ukraine attacks targets in Russia, awaits US aid vote | DW News

US lawmakers are preparing to hold a crucial vote on support for Ukraine. The US has been Ukraine’s biggest supplier of military aid in its war against Russia. But Congress hasn’t approved any major funding since last year.
In Europe, other NATO members have agreed to strengthen Ukraine’s air defenses, including sending more Patriot missile systems. It follows President Zelenskyy’s pleas for more help with fending off Russian airstrikes.
Separately, Ukraine says it has shot down a long-range Russian bomber for the first time. But officials in Moscow say the plane crashed because of a malfunction. Meanwhile, Russia’s weapons advantage has allowed it to make gains in eastern Ukraine.
