The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine continues to grow, with 1.7 million refugees seeking safety across the border while civilians in Ukrainian cities under Russian artillery and missile attacks remain trapped. Meanwhile, Russian forces continue to push forward with only modest gains, and Ukrainian defenders continue their success in reaching far into Russian supply convoys.
International support for even more stringent sanctions against Russia continues to grow as well, with the Biden administration reportedly working with European nations in contemplation of a possible ban on imports of Russian oil and gas. While such a ban would likely have modest effects in the United States, it would roil European markets—but it would also serve to cut off the largest remaining source of funds for Putin’s regime.
