  • EU leaders and US President Joe Biden called for unity Thursday in the face of Russia's invasion in Ukraine.

  • They are meeting in Brussels to discuss possible new measures against the Kremlin as well as additional support to Ukraine. But the summit's first day was light on concrete action.

  • Sweden said it's important the EU is in firm agreement about any further sanctions since Europeans will likely feel the impact, with higher energy prices.
