The U.S. House of Representatives will hold a public hearing on “Oversight, Transparency, and Accountability of Ukraine Assistance” on March 29, House Foreign Affairs Committee announced via a message on its website on March 22.
The hearing will feature current inspectors-general from the U.S. State Department, the Department of Defense, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
The Republican party, which won a majority in the house in 2022 midterm elections, is in favor of establishing mechanisms for more thorough scrutiny of the financial and military assistance Washington provides to Kyiv.
On Feb. 23, White House Press Secertary Karine Jean-Pierre said that both chambers of U.S. Congress support Ukraine. According to her, only a small number of Republican lawmakers favor curtailing aid to Ukraine.
On March 9, U.S. President Joe Biden sent his 2024 budget proposal to the congress, which includes more than $6 billion in additional Ukraine aid.
