Watch as the US House of Representatives votes to pass a bill which provides $95bn in aid to Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific region, including Taiwan.

After months of delay from vocal opponents on the Republican right, the House passed the bill.

Ukraine has long been warning of an urgent need for support from its allies, of which the US is one.

The bill was held up for months because a growing number of Republicans are indicating opposition to providing aid to Ukraine.

At the same time, some liberals in Congress oppose providing military support for Israel in its war against Hamas.

The bill passed through the Senate but had been held up by factions in the House, in part due to the Republicans' slim majority.
