Hranchak Quoted in Newsweek Article on House Speaker Mike Johnson’s US aid Package for Ukraine

April 22, 2024


Ukraine's supporters are anxiously awaiting to see if House Speaker Mike Johnson's plans for a new U.S. aid package for Ukraine can succeed and help Kyiv fight Vladimir Putin's aggression.

On April 16, Johnson said he planned to advance an aid deal for Kyiv next to separate packages for Taiwan, Israel and other U.S. allies, following months of deadlock on assistance for Ukraine due to opposition from some Republicans.

"I hope that the change in the rhetoric of Speaker Mike Johnson will become the first step in a rethinking of the Russian threat by American politicians," says Tetiana Hranchak, visiting assistant teaching professor in the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs.

"The current decision regarding aid to Ukraine, if it is adopted, is important, although it does not allow to solve the problem of Russian aggression and terror systematically," she says.
