GOP Lawmakers Express Skepticism of Biden Administration’s Support for Ukraine Ahead of President Zelensky’s Visit to Washington

President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine is visiting Washington, D.C. to seek additional military aid to help fend off Russia’s invasion, but a key bloc of Republicans in the GOP-controlled lower chamber have expressed skepticism and sent a letter to the White House expressing their opposition to the request for $24 billion in additional funding. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans have voiced their support for the Biden administration’s efforts, but the letter from the GOP lawmakers expresses their concern that the Biden administration has not provided sufficient answers to their questions. The letter states that the lawmakers will not support additional funding for Ukraine until they receive answers to their questions.
