Washington: US lawmakers voted Tuesday to send a $40 billion aid package to Ukraine, after President Joe Biden warned that funds to help Kyiv repel the Russian invasion would likely dry up within days.

The defense, humanitarian and economic funding passed the House of Representatives by 368 votes to 57, with the two parties having already reached an agreement on the details, and it will likely be rubber-stamped by the Senate by the end of the week or next week.
