EU spit on ending energy supplies from Russia

Soldiers advance to war in Ukrane

The European Union (EU) has remained unable to agree on ending supplies of Russian oil and gas, Germany’s economy minister says

Meanwhile ministers are discussing an embargo on Russian oil, though Hungary has so clarified that it will block consensus.

On the side of Germany it says it would not be ready to block Russian gas but could bear a phased-in oil embargo. Revenues from the supplies – millions of euros a day – are used to fund Russia’s war in Ukraine.

On the humanitarian situation reports say, some 100 people evacuated from a besieged steel plant in the southern city of Mariupol are due to arrive in Ukraine-held areas. Hundreds more civilians remain trapped there and President Zelensky has said he hopes further evacuations can take place
