World Chaos Update – Russia – EU – Ukraine

EU struggles with Russia oil embargo +++ Ukraine wants more heavy weapons.

European leaders are meeting in Brussels today to discuss more sanctions against Russia, including planning to phase out Russian oil imports.  But a full ban is looking unlikely after opposition from Hungary, which depends on oil delivered by a Russian pipeline.  The two-day European Council meeting attempts to avoid a display of disunity over the bloc’s response to the war in Ukraine.  The outcome of this EU leaders’ meeting is being closely observed in Ukraine.
