Zelensky Planning to Visit D.C. to Address Congress, Meet Biden

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will pay an in-person visit to Congress on Wednesday as lawmakers prepare to pass a budget that includes more than $45 billion in new military and humanitarian aid for his country.

Zelenskyy is set to address Members of Congress on Wednesday. The Ukrainian president is expected to praise lawmakers for their support as his nation fights off an unprovoked invasion by Russia. Zelenskyy is also expected to argue that the war is by no means won and that more help is needed.

The visit comes as the Senate is slated to take up President Biden’s $1.7 trillion spending bill this week. The legislation includes more than $45 billion in additional aid to Ukraine.

A large portion of Republicans in both the House and Senate are expected to join with Democrats to approve the bill.

“Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the No. 1 priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Not everyone is on board, however. Some GOP lawmakers have argued that the additional funding, which would bring the U.S. commitment to war over the $110 billion mark, is improper without greater accountability.

“We should have a separate vote on additional Ukraine funding,” said Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky. “Most of my constituents do not wish to have their money sent to Ukraine, especially not without oversight or an audit.”

    So zelensky going to visit house which looks like a pride flag so fitting.why send him money if he’s spending it on security to take a holiday away from his freezing and starving people. Where’s Putin when you need him

    This whole charade is insane. Putin’s beliefs line up with ours on several counts while this closet communist dictator (who made all his TV stations into one political propaganda machine) is closing down ALL Christian churches and has launched an obvious battle against Christianity in his nation. Why the hell are we supporting him instead of Putin? Do all Americans believe the propaganda about Russia that we have heard over the past several years from the completely incompetent lying democratic party?!?! What about US? America could easily use 47 billion dollars to shore up our crime infested cities and bring our schools back around to teaching what they were built for instead of being indoctrination systems! People here can’t pay our bills, can’t celebrate Christmas, are losing their cars, their homes, their lives because of the incompetence in DC. I for one am sick of it and I thank God I have a hope beyond this miserable country that the deep state has handed over to china.
