Kean’s Ukraine funding and accountability legislation passes House

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Tom Kean’s legislation (H.R.5692) to provide critical military assistance to Ukraine has passed the US House with an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote, 311-117.

The Ukraine Security Assistance and Oversight Supplemental Appropriations Act will provide $300 million for the Department of Defense’s Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. This legislation also includes key transparency and accountability requirements to ensure taxpayer dollars are being best utilized in the fight against Putin.

“It is in the U.S. interest for Ukraine to win as soon as possible,” Kean said. “The Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative has been funded by Congress for years to support Ukraine against Putin’s illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and subsequent war in the Donbas. Now more than ever, Ukraine needs our help and I’m pleased that my colleagues agree with me.”
