Congress approved a new $40 billion aid package for Ukraine Thursday, the latest tranche of US assistance for Kyiv in its fight against Russia's military operation.

The aid package was roundly approved by the Senate after being adopted by the House of Representatives last week. It now heads to President Joe Biden's desk for his signature.
