Thirteen conservative-leaning groups are urging Congressional leaders not to approve additional aid for Ukraine in the lame duck session, as Axios reported. They wrote in a letter to Congressional leaders that the next Congress should determine how much to send to Ukraine and conduct oversight into how it is spent.

“We understand the desire to help the people of Ukraine,” the letter says. “They are the victims of a brutal and immoral Russian invasion. Our sympathies with the Ukrainian cause, however, do not negate the responsibility of the United States Congress to place American interests first and foremost when shaping U.S. foreign policy.”

Signers include the Heritage Foundation, Concerned Veterans for America, and Defense Priorities Initiative.
