Wall Street Journal: Plan "Representatives" American to provide aid to Ukraine and Israel is on the verge of collapse


The American newspaper (Wall Street Journal) reported on Wednesday that US House Speaker Mike Johnson’s plan to provide aid to Ukraine and Israel is on the verge of collapse; Amid the rebellion of members of his Republican Party and the demands of conservatives for border conditions in exchange for their support, while Democrats developed an alternative plan for that aid.

The American newspaper explained on its website that Johnson met with Republicans until late Tuesday night, trying to develop a way to move forward with the legislation. The talks continued until this morning in an attempt to publish the final text of the proposal, give members 72 hours to read it and then hold a vote by the end of this week, but this goal seemed to be fading.

The American newspaper added that approving military aid to Kiev represents a risky bet for Johnson and his political fate, as the right wing had previously threatened to seek to isolate him if the US House of Representatives approved the promised military aid to Kiev. Ukraine’s frustration has increased in recent months due to the US Congress’ delay in approving this aid package.
