Ukraine has “chance of victory” with multi-billion dollar aid package | BBC News

Ukraine’s President Zelensky said his country had a “chance of victory” after the US House of Representatives finally approved billions of dollars in new US military aid to help combat Russia’s invasion.

The much-delayed measure had vocal opponents in Congress and it took a fragile bipartisan deal to get the £49bn package through.

Republicans said more than a third would be dedicated to replenishing weapons and ammunition. It’s likely to include air defence systems, mid to long-range missiles and artillery shells.
It is unclear when it will arrive.

The package will now go to the Senate, which is expected to pass it within the next few days before President Joe Biden signs it into law.

Ukraine, which relies on Western weapons, desperately needs the aid as it struggles to contain Russian troops, who have been making steady advances in recent weeks.
