The Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives

overwhelmingly

rejected a bill by the Trumpist wing of the Republican Party, which proposed to introduce an audit of the aid provided to Ukraine by the Joe Biden administration.

This is reported

by The Washington Post

.

Democratic congressmen urged not to support the bill, which could send a mixed signal about the US role in helping Ukraine.

However, even moderate Republicans supported him.

However, the majority of congressmen voted against the bill and the committee rejected it.

"This is all about accountability. It's about transparency. What are we afraid of? We have billions and billions of dollars going to another country," said Republican Tim Burchett.

He added that no one is going to cut aid to Ukraine.

In turn, representatives of the Democratic Party stated that the issue of accountability does not correspond to interests at a time when Russian troops are trying to destroy the civilian infrastructure of Ukraine.

The main author of the bill was the Trumpist and supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory Marjorie Taylor Green, who even before the election promised to completely cut off aid to Ukraine.

After the vote failed, she said she would bring it up again in January, when Republicans hold a majority in the House of Representatives.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that Russia launched a

powerful disinformation campaign against Ukraine

in the USA .

In addition, we previously informed that American senators

will gather for closed discussions on the situation in Ukraine.
