Washington, DC – Foreign Policy for America commends the bipartisan passage of the Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2022. This important legislation will ensure the United States is able to continue to support the Ukrainian people in defense of their national sovereignty as they oppose Russia’s unjust and illegal invasion. FP4A also notes with strong approval the bill’s inclusion of significant humanitarian and economic assistance, including $5 billion to address the global hunger crisis exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and $10 billion in diplomatic efforts to support the Ukrainian people.
“It is encouraging to see such strong bipartisan support for the administration’s efforts to aid the Ukrainian people,” said Foreign Policy for America Executive Director Andrew Albertson. “FP4A is particularly grateful for the investments in humanitarian and diplomatic support contained in this bill. Robust diplomatic and humanitarian assistance has been a cornerstone of America’s support for Ukraine, and this important work must continue. That said, we also recognize that Congress has yet to pass a COVID supplemental that includes much-needed funding for global vaccination efforts. We cannot take our eye off the ball on this critical issue that impacts all of us, and we urge Congress to quickly pass a COVID supplemental.”
