Biden is now meeting with the European Council on a day focused on allied unity.

Thursday’s meetings will coordinate with NATO allies on military aid to Ukraine, new sanctions on Russia, and strengthening defenses in Eastern Europe. The United States also formally accused Russian forces of committing war crimes in Ukraine.

The United States also announced that it would accept 100,000 refugees displaced by the Russian invasion – one of the largest refugee receptions in the country in years.
