US Senate advances Ukraine aid, clash with House awaits

People queue to get their Russian passports in the Crimean city of Sevastopol on March 24, 2014The US Senate easily advanced a Ukraine aid package Monday that includes sanctions on Russia, but its controversial inclusion of IMF reforms is likely to stall the legislation in the House. Senators voted 78 to 17 to overcome a procedural hurdle, strongly signalling the bill backed by President Barack Obama could pass later this week. But several Republicans have said reforms to the International Monetary Fund which are included in the bill, and which the White House has said would immediately boost lending capacity to Ukraine, are unnecessary. The House has already passed an aid measure, but with no IMF reforms.
