Policy: The aid packages come as part of four different proposals to be tabled, and one of them will also include additional sanctions against Russia and Iran.

Johnson himself states this in an interview with Fox News.

The proposals, which will also include aid to Taiwan and America’s allies in the Indo-Pacific, may be voted on as early as Friday. It is more than two months after the Senate passed a proposal providing additional aid to Ukraine and Israel.

The package, which has already been adopted in the Senate, has a total framework of 95 billion dollars, in excess of 1,000 billion kroner.

– We are not going to vote on the Senate’s aid package in its current form, but we will vote separately on each of these purposes in four different parts, Johnson said on Tuesday night.

According to what Johnson told Fox News on Tuesday, the proposals also include seizing the assets of what he calls corrupt Russian oligarchs.

How much money will be granted has not been determined, according to Johnson.
