the ukrainian. so that older a package is nearly complete. the new one to 33 billion dollar one includes not only. a military equipment, also a good deal of humanitarian aid and financial support for the ukrainian government. all of that is in that package. we have to pass it. there's some not members of the senate. they want to play some games getting their much to wanted. you should probably be into the legislation. so we'll see what happens. but i would expect this will be done probably towards the end of may. >> do you think our response so far to the invasion has been appropriate? >> well, it's certainly been from the very outset. the very first thing the biden administration yet was to rally the support of europe, european union and nato actually got a little ahead of the united states, which was

exactly what biden wanted. he wanted really to be a on a on nato as well as european union prior to the biden administration, nato was almost defunct. but now with this work going on, nato is strong and a dull is so all of the nato countries are providing assistance. in fact, just 2 nights ago i had dinner with the swedish and finnish ambassador. they were making a very strong pitch at that dinner to get the congress. basically the senate to immediately allow a modification of the nato treaty to at finland and sweden. this was precisely but couldn't did not want to happen. >> congress understand that is expecting things to move a little bit faster here in terms of this takeover of this invasion. so how important is this speed of the the things that we're looking at getting
8:44 pm
involved with with passing this this bill and getting this funding and equipment to the ukrainians in this effort. >> well, first of all, the existing appropriations and the it the equipment, that's all that they've been authorized is flowing. if we can do this. and now the month of may, there will be a continuation. there will be no no interruption will be additional and significant equipment. the eastern european nato countries are actually supplying their own artillery as well tanks and other armored equipment. in addition to i would expect that we will see increased activity. i know united kingdom is sending some 8,000 into the eastern nato countries to bolster the defenses there. sweden and finland actually do join, i expect that they will within the next 3 months. no be even greater strength. all of this
8:45 pm
is a message to russia that they are not going to be able to win this easily. at the very outset of this, i said that the russian bear better be very careful because he's about to try to swallow a porcupine. that never works out well for the bear. that's been the case. i put thought he could to cap it. take. ukrainian government turned out he couldn't take the capital. they certainly didn't reckon the president. so his skate and incredible letter dealership that here show. >> definitely. i know here at home that is one of the the most inspiring things for a lot of us here at home to see how the ukrainian people are fighting and with our help and 33 billion more dollars to go towards that hopefully will continue to help them fight that invasion. and congressman germany, thank you so much for joining us this evening. >> thank you, carrie. not. >> the stockton police department has selected a new chief of police stanley make that work.
