In a blitzkrieg vote on December 11, both chambers of the US Congress passed a landmark bill known as the Ukraine Freedom Support Act 2014 that offers Kyiv defence weapons worth $350 million and the status of a US non-NATO ally.
Now it’s up to the US President Barack Obama to enact this bill by signing. In the next few days, Obama will get it on his table. But if he fails to sign by the end of the year, the bill will have to go through a new cycle in the U.S. Congress.
“Now we are rallying to ask Obama to sign the bill,” said Constantin Kostenko, one of the leaders of the Pass2828 campaign that was launched by the Ukrainian diaspora.
