U.S. Congress committee approves increased security assistance to Ukraine

The Rules Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives has approved amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022, the Voice of America has reported.

According to the report, the proposals include sanctions against Nord Stream 2, the use of titanium from Ukraine instead of the resources from China and Russia on which the United States now depends, and fresh sanctions against Russia and Russian oligarchs, high-ranking officials, and media persons.

In addition, the bill provides for $300 million in security assistance to Ukraine and proposes increasing U.S. military presence on NATO's eastern flank - in Poland, Romania, and the Baltic countries.

The approval of the amendments means they were added to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022.

The NDAA should now be approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. Final approval requires the NDAA with the same content to be adopted by the Senate. The Act will come into force after being signed by the President of the United States.

Earlier reports said that the U.S. Congress was discussing increasing military aid to Ukraine to $300 million.
