Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other European leaders have applauded the US for passing a vital €89 billion aid bill which has been struggling to make it through the House of Representatives for months.

The House swiftly approved roughly €89 billion in foreign aid for Ukraine, Israel and other US allies in a rare Saturday session as Democrats and Republicans banded together after months of hard-right resistance over renewed American support for repelling Russia’s invasion.

With an overwhelming vote, €57 billion in aid for Ukraine passed in a matter of minutes, a strong showing as American lawmakers race to deliver a fresh round of US support to the war-torn ally. Many Democrats cheered on the House floor and waved blue-and-yellow flags of Ukraine.

    Hey, Republicans, do y’all remember Red Dawn? Those two movies you made about The USSR and Russia being the ultimate evil enemy that was going to invade and must be stopped? You do? Good.

    My real question is, why in the name of all that is Murican, ARE YOU ACTIVELY HELPING RUSSIA WITH THEIR ILLEGAL AND UNPROVOKED INVASION‽‽‽

      “Red Dawn” is the most compelling reminder here…?

        I know several conservatives that swore that movie was a very probable scenario in the 80s-00s. AFAIK they’ve all left the party.

          I just figured instead of a mildly popular cold war era fictional book/movie, a better reminder would be the, you know, cold war.

      Republicans are not helping anyone, you’re spending too much time on here buddy. Republicans simply want accountability for the aid. They ask questions, because if it was up to the Democrats, they’d just send, send, send…

          They’re helping me. I’ve worked my ass off for what I have in life…it seems to me that the only party that continues to have their hands out are Democrats.

        Nice try comrade. There are so many Republicans bought and paid for by Russian oligarchy dirty money it’s hard to tell the difference now. How does it feel to be a traitor to the United States for your butt buddies in Moscow? Confederates, all of you.

        Sounds like you, who rolled all up and down this thread and c&ped this same bullshit and hit “send send send”.

        want accountability for the aid.

        The accountability is that Ukraine will lose their country and their lives to Putin’s Evil Empire if they don’t win the war. Why do you hate freedom and the Free World?
