"Given the situation on Capitol Hill, we cannot guarantee that our aid to Ukraine will continue," said National Security Council spokesman John Kirby. He reiterated, however, that President Joe Biden is willing to reach a compromise with Republicans to break the stalemate over support for Ukraine.

Kirby also confirmed that ongoing assistance to Ukraine is backed by the majority of both Democratic and Republican members of Congress.

"There are only a few Republicans who wish to withhold aid to Ukraine, demanding an extreme border policy with Mexico," declared Kirby.

The day before, Republicans put a stop to further proceedings in the Senate on a bill proposing a $61 billion support package for Ukraine.

Putin seizes opportunity as the White House struggles

Kirby noted that while the president disagrees with extreme solutions, he intends to conduct "good faith negotiations" on changes to immigration policy. However, he declined to engage in "public negotiations" or to share details of a possible compromise.

"This is about compromise; in a compromise, no one gets everything they want. But that's not what we're hearing from the Republicans. They've taken the stance, 'We don't take prisoners, it's all or nothing.' This is not good faith negotiation," Kirby assessed.

When asked about potential negotiations to end the war, Kirby stated that only President Zelenskyy will make that decision.

"Given his position and looking at the front, there are many Russians there and their numbers are growing as Putin continues to enlist additional forces. We want to prepare him not only to defend himself, but also to take the offensive. We wish to provide him with the tools to do this," he replied.
