Ukrainian officials make plea to Congress for more funding 

(Washington, DC)  --  Top Ukrainian officials are making their case to Congress to secure more U.S. funding.  

Ukrainian President Zelensky spoke to senators remotely during a classified briefing this afternoon, while the speaker of Ukraine's parliament met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.  

This comes as the White House warns Ukraine's military will suffer losses to Russia if new aid isn't approved before the end of December.  

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday will bring President Biden's 106-billion dollar supplemental package to the floor for a procedural vote.

The bill includes funding for Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and the southern border.  

Republicans are expected to block the legislation because it lacks border policy measures the party has demanded.
