Biden’s diplomacy

President Biden’s trip to Poland will come a day after he meets in Brussels with Nato allies, leaders of G7 and the European Union to discuss international efforts to support allies in war-ravaged Ukraine.

Further tightening

President Biden’s plan envisages a ban on US investment in Russia beyond the energy sector. Furthermore, G7 will block Russia's access to funds from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. “But these are not the last steps we are taking,” he warned. The economic blight is bound to hit Russia hard.
