WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the U.S. Senate would vote on Wednesday on a $95.34 billion spending bill including security assistance for Ukraine and Israel, international humanitarian aid and resources to help allies in the Indo-Pacific, but without changes in border security opposed by Republicans.

Senate aides said they thought the package had a good chance of advancing in the chamber after a few influential Republicans said they would support it.

Here is some of what is in the bill they released:

UKRAINE AID

The bill includes $60.06 billion in additional aid to Ukraine. Much of that would come in the form of weapons and military equipment purchased from by U.S. defense companies and to restore U.S. stockpiles after two years of transfers for Ukraine's battle against Russian invaders.

ISRAEL AID

The Senate plan directs $14.1 billion to Israel to support its war against Hamas.

It also strips U.S. funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. Israel has accused 12 of UNRWA's Palestinian employees of being involved in Hamas' Oct. 7 attack.

RED SEA SUPPORT

The bill gives the Pentagon $2.44 billion for operations around the Red Sea, where U.S. forces have sought to combat attacks on shipping by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

INDO-PACIFIC FUNDING

The bill would spend almost $4.83 billion to support partners in the Indo-Pacific, including Taiwan, and deter aggression by China.

HUMANITARIAN AID

The bill would provide $9.15 billion in humanitarian assistance to provide food, water, shelter, medical care and other services to civilians in Gaza and the West Bank, Ukraine and other populations in conflict zones around the globe.
