Senator Dick Durbin Meets in Ukraine

Durbin Retains Title of Assistant Majority Leader in Senate_-4763020976241094727
Eight senators are in Ukraine meeting with leaders of the country’s interim government.

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin is part of that delegation. The team spent time this morning paying respect to those who died in the Independence Square clashes in Kiev.

Congress has been split over a proposed aid package for Ukraine that could provide a billion dollars in loan guarantees.

The senate will head into a week-long recess without a compromise on that relief package.
