Republicans vow to continue bipartisan support for Ukraine after the Republican Party takes control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January.
According to CNN, Michael McCall, who may head the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Mike Turner, who is a contender for the position of head of the intelligence committee, expressed confidence that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “will have bipartisan support.”
At the same time, they supported the position of the Republican leader Kevin McCarthy that there would be no “carte blanche” in the issue of financing Ukraine.
Congressmen said that the provision of aid must be “accountable and transparent to the American people.” Greater accountability had also been previously pushed for by McCarthy.
McCall and Turner also expressed support for sending long-range missiles to Ukraine. Separately, Turner emphasized the importance of providing easy-to-use air defense systems.
US elections and support for Ukraine
On November 8, mid-term elections were held for both houses of the US Congress.
According to media reports, the Republicans took the majority in the House of Representatives. The final results of the elections to the Senate will be known only in December.
On the eve of the elections, it was reported that the number of opponents of military support to Ukraine increased in the Republican Party. There were rumors of a split in the party that could potentially prevent the provision of military assistance.
The OPU called statements about a decrease in support for Ukraine after the US elections speculative and such that they play into the hands of only Russia.
