LIVE UPDATES: US Senate to Hold Classified Briefing on Ukraine on Wednesday - Majority Leader

Russia launched its special military operation in Ukraine in February, after Ukraine increased its attacks against the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics.
Russia began striking Ukrainian infrastructure on October 10, two days after the terrorist attack on the Crimean Bridge, which Moscow believes was plotted and carried out by Kiev.
The strikes are carried out on power, defense industry, military command and communications facilities across Ukraine. Since then, air raid warnings have been issued in Ukrainian regions every day, sometimes throughout the country.
After the strikes on November 15, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal said that almost half of the country's energy grid had been put out of service.

US Senate to Hold Classified Briefing on Ukraine Tomorrow - Majority Leader
The US Senate will hold a classified briefing to update lawmakers on the conflict in Ukraine as Congress attempts to pass a government funding bill and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) before the end of the year, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Tuesday.
"Tomorrow, we’ll have an all-Senators classified briefing on the latest developments in Ukraine. I’m confident Senators will leave that briefing with a stronger understanding about how critical an omnibus is, not just to fund the government and keep our country moving and innovating, but to ensure we’re providing our troops, our veterans and our allies with what they need," Schumer said during a conference.
Republicans and Democrats will continue negotiations to fund the government through an omnibus bill or continuing resolution, as well as to pass the NDAA, before the new Congress takes office in January, Schumer said.
Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed to work together on government funding legislation, for which both sides will "have to give" to send a bill to President Joe Biden’s desk, Schumer said.

Ukrainian Ambassador Says Germany Mulling Sending Heavy Weapons to Ukraine
Germany is considering providing Kiev with heavy weapons, with negotiations on timing and supply logistics conducted in the "triangle" format, Ukrainian Ambassador to Berlin Oleksiy Makeev said on Tuesday.
Makeev said previously that Ukraine needed weapons such as Leopard tanks, Marder infantry fighting vehicles, Fuchs and Dingo armored personnel carriers.
"The President, the Minister of Defense, the Minister of Foreign Affairs constantly say that we [Ukraine] need serious armored vehicles...
