Yes, both Senate & House voted to help Russia. Obama changed to send MRE & blankets. Remember, ‘hot mike’ incident President Obama — ‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’?
The exchange:

President Obama: ON ALL THESE ISSUES,but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

I beleive Ukraine was ONE of those issues!
