No Ukraine aid yet from US amid Republican split
WASHINGTON - The US Congress will not be able to authorize aid to Ukraine until after March 24 amid disagreements among several Republicans.


The Senate is unlikely to vote before leaving for recess Thursday on a bill approving $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine, sanctions on Russia and International Monetary Fund reforms.


They say it increases US taxpayer exposure; the counterargument is it immediately releases money for Ukraine.Other Republicans oppose paying for the loans with unused military money. (AP)
