MOSCOW — Moscow on Saturday slammed the approval by the US House of Representatives for an aid package to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.

“The allocation of US military aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan will exacerbate global crises,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Telegram.

She called aid for Kyiv “direct support for terrorist activities” and said aid to Taiwan represented “interference in China’s internal affairs”.

Support for Israel represents “a direct path to an unprecedented worsening of the situation in the region,” Zakharova added.

Lawmakers in the US House of Representatives passed legislation in a rare Saturday session that provides aid to Ukraine and Israel, bolsters Taiwan while also threatening a ban on TikTok if it fails to divest from Beijing.
