As reported by Rubryka, Biden asked Congress in late April to allocate an additional $33 billion to help Ukraine.
However, lawmakers have increased the president's previous request.
Today, the aid package is nearly $40 billion. In particular, it includes more than $18.7 billion in military and security aid.
The document also provides nearly $8.8 billion for Ukraine's economic support fund
In addition, $5 billion will be spent solving the world's food shortages caused by the war.
