German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has welcomed the decision by the US House of Representatives to greenlight a major aid package for Ukraine.

Scholz said it was a “strong signal in these times.”

US lawmakers on Saturday voted to pass the $61 billion (€57 billion) package, which had been stalled by political infighting for months.

Meanwhile, US think tank the Institute for the Study of War said that, in the wake of the vote, Russian forces would likely intensify attacks and strikes “to exploit the closing window of Ukrainian materiel constraints.”
