USA: The Biden administration has increased to $10 billion the amount of money it is seeking immediately from Congress in aid for Ukraine and Eastern European partners, writing that it wants the money along with additional funds to fight Covid-19 wrapped into a fiscal 2022 spending bill that Congress aims to pass by next week.
While there is broad political support for supporting Ukraine against an invasion by Russia, Republicans are balking at providing additional funds for addressing the coronavirus pandemic. The U.S. government is currently funded through March 11.
