WASHINGTON, Nov 18 – Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have introduced a bill to audit aid to Ukraine, said Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green, the controversial author of resolutions to impeach incumbent U.S. President Joe Biden.
In addition to her, the bill was supported by ten of her party members.
Legislators also require that all documents and discussions on the allocation of funds to Ukraine, including for military, civil and financial assistance, be sent in advance for approval.
The Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine admitted in early July that it had identified cases of sale of humanitarian aid and military products coming from Western countries. Approximately ten criminal cases have been initiated. Later, Ukrainian-born American Congresswoman Victoria Spartz urged Congress to create a mechanism to control aid to Ukraine.
Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov also said that some of Ukraine’s allies sent military representatives to the country to monitor the flow of weapons provided to Kyiv. Later, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine created a commission to monitor the “material and technical assistance” coming into the country.
Against the background of the Russian military operation, the United States and its allies continue to send weapons to Ukraine. American President Joe Biden signed the lend-lease law, Washington allocates tens of billions of dollars to Kyiv. Moscow has repeatedly emphasized that the supply of Western military equipment only prolongs the conflict, and that vehicles with Western weapons become a legitimate target for the Russian army.
