The U.S. Congress on Friday approved $12.3 billion in aid to Ukraine, AFP reported.
The package includes $3 billion for arms, supplies and salaries for the Ukrainian military and authorizes U.S. President Joe Biden to direct the Pentagon to transfer $3.7 billion worth of weapons and other equipment to Ukraine.
The so-called "continuing resolution," passed by 230 votes to 201, also provides $4.5 billion to Kiev to keep the country's finances stable and the government running.
This allocation increases the U.S. contribution to the war effort to $65 billion.
Earlier, the U.S. announced $1.1 billion in military aid to Ukraine.
Since the Biden administration took office, total U.S. aid to Ukraine has reached nearly $17 billion.
