A draft bill on aid to Israel without mentioning Ukraine was approved by a vote in the US House of Representatives.
226 members of the House voted in support of the bill, while 196 congressmen opposed it. Two Republicans opposed the bill, while 12 Democrats supported it.
On October 26, the newly elected Speaker of the US House of Representatives said he believed it was necessary to separate the issues of support for Ukraine and Israel.
Later, the leader of the Republicans in the US Senate, Mitch McConnell, spoke in support of providing aid to Ukraine and Israel as part of a single package, despite the fact that the Speaker of the House of Representatives insisted on separate bills.
