A few details of the Senate's Ukrainian aid bill are coming to light, via Foreign Relations chairman Bob Menendez.
The bill mirrors one passed in the House last week by providing $1 billion in U. S. loan guarantees to Ukraine but goes further by containing language allowing a 2010 restructuring of the IMF to go forward.
It also directs the administration to help Ukraine in recovering assets linked to corrupt activities by former President Viktor Yanukovych, provides $50 million in direct aid for “democracy, governance and civil society assistance” and $100 million for military aide.
The committee will do a mark-up of the bill this afternoon; IMF reforms may be the main sticking point for conservatives, since those reforms may weaken United States' influence over the organization.
