Trump administration reinstates military aid for Ukraine, senators say

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trumpís administration has released $250 million in military aid for Ukraine, U.S. senators said on Thursday, after lawmakers from both parties expressed anger that the White House had held up money approved by Congress.

Republican and Democratic members of the Senate Appropriations Committee said the White House released the money on Wednesday night, hours before the panel was due to debate an amendment to a defense spending bill that would have prevented Trump from such actions in the future.

It was one of several disputes recently between Trump and members of Congress, some of his fellow Republicans as well as Democrats, over his administrationís decision to sidestep congressional approval to fund its own policy initiatives.

A few Republicans, as well as Democrats, had said they expected Congress would pass legislation to reinstate the aid for Ukraine if the administration had not released the money.
