Supporters of Ukraine want this to be a one-and-done big bill, and then not have to deal with it until after the next election,” one of the sources told the newspaper. The newspaper cited sources as saying that the single aid package may provide the Biden administration with the best chance of securing funding for Ukraine until after next November’s election.
