Ukraine aid package clears key procedural vote in US Senate


A sweeping US foreign aid package, including $60 billion for Ukraine, passes a key procedural vote in the Senate, although opposition from right-wing Republicans may block it from ultimately becoming law. The upper chamber, which has a very slim Democratic majority, votes 67-27 to break a procedural hold placed on the bill, with its final passage now expected midweek. IMAGES
