US Senate forges ahead on Ukraine, Israel aid as 'Putin is watching'

The US Senate is pushing forward with a $95.34 billion aid package for Ukraine and Israel despite uncertainty over support from the House of Representatives. The bill received a boost when the Senate voted 67-27 to move it past a procedural hurdle. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer aims to pass the bill by Wednesday. The Senate is expected to cast a procedural vote on Monday to keep the bill moving forward. The aid package includes funds for Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, and Taiwan. Some Republicans oppose the bill and want to cut off aid to Ukraine while focusing on border security.
