US House passes Ukraine aid bill

Demonstrators hold placards during a rally in front of the White House on March 6, 2014 in Washington, DCThe House of Representatives on Thursday overwhelmingly approved US financial aid to crisis-plagued Ukraine, but the Senate is unlikely to take up the measure until at least next week. The lower chamber of Congress voted 385 to 23 in favor of the loan guarantees, the first tangible congressional response to Russia’s incursion into its neighbor and former Soviet satellite. The White House and State Department have said the aid will include some $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine’s government as Kiev grapples with military and political interference by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
