NBC: US ​​congressmen did not support combining aid to Ukraine and Israel

Many Republicans in the US Congress were skeptical about combining aid to Ukraine and Israel. This was reported by NBC.

According to media reports, skepticism arose against the background of the fading desire of the Republican Party to help Ukraine. Last July, 70 Republicans in the House of Representatives supported an amendment to end military aid to Kyiv. In September, that number rose to 93 lawmakers.

Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, said Congress should first help Israel after the Hamas attack. He opposed pooling aid, citing Tel Aviv's dire need.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., said Ukraine and Israel cannot be lumped together. According to the politician, the American government allocates money to Kyiv for a proxy war with Russia, and Israel defends itself.

“They should not be connected with each other. I will not vote to fund Ukraine. Absolutely not,” she added.
