Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked the U.S. House of Representatives and House Speaker Mike Johnson for approving billions in military aid for Ukraine’s defence against Russia’s war.

“I am grateful to the United States House of Representatives, both parties, and personally the Speaker for the decision that keeps history on the right track,” Zelensky wrote on X platform on Saturday shortly after the historic vote.

“Democracy and freedom will always have global significance and will never fail as long as America helps to protect it,” Zelensky wrote.

After months of obstruction, the U.S. House of Representatives had approved nearly $61 billion aid package for Ukraine. The measure is expected to be approved soon in the Senate and sent to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature.

“Thank you, America!” Zelensky said.
