  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the United Nations Security Council Tuesday to penalize Russia for its invasion of Ukraine and limit Russia’s influence on the important UN body, Politico reported. He chided the organization for its inability to hold Russia responsible, adding that if the UN is unable to address the Russian threat, it should disband.
  • The United States, the European Union, and the Group of Seven are planning a fresh set of sanctions on Russia to punish the Kremlin for crimes in Ukraine, including a ban on all new US investments in the country, Bloomberg noted. Meanwhile, a number of European nations have announced the expulsion of dozens of Russian diplomats in response to allegations of war crimes committed by Russian soldiers in Ukraine, especially in Bucha, where many residents are believed to have been slaughtered, Radio Free Europe wrote.
  • Russia’s invasion has risked the lives of many medics and other healthcare workers treating HIV-positive and AIDS patients in Ukraine, a country that has one of the highest rates of HIV in Europe, according to the Independent.
