On April 20, the US Congress voted to aid Ukraine in the war. The package provides for the allocation of approximately 61 billion dollars in appropriations for Ukraine, allies and the replenishment of the arsenals of the American army, as well as the provision of long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine.

The decision of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Republican Mike Johnson, to vote on the draft law on aid to Ukraine was influenced by announced intelligence data, political pressure and a change in personal beliefs. This is stated in the analytical publication of The New York Times.

Despite the fact that for the American Congress, the adoption of bills is a quite ordinary event, but the adoption of aid to Ukraine was special. There were several reasons for this

This was not an ordinary event for the USA. Voting took place on Saturday, it was a conditionally extraordinary meeting, because it had to end on April 19. At most, this package was of great importance even for the domestic policy of the United States, – noted Yaroslav Zheleznyak.

It is interesting that the adoption of draft laws was followed not only by those countries that were directly affected by the aid – Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan – but also many Americans themselves. One of the laws related to the national security of the USA, in particular the ban on Tik Tok, so it caused real interest in the American society.

This was an extraordinary event, it was specifically visible in our draft law. Because when in the second of five minutes of voting it was clear that there was an overwhelming majority of votes, many congressmen took out Ukrainian flags, gathered tentatively near the podium and started chanting “Ukraine”. The chairman hinted at the meeting that it is forbidden to display any flags of other countries in the Congress, but I will not say that this stopped the congressmen, the People's Deputy said. visible elevation of congressmen appeared.
