The U.S. and allies are coordinating on a new round of sanctions, including a bar on all new investments in Russia, to punish the Kremlin for the alleged murders of civilians by its forces in Ukraine. 

The Biden administration is sending another $100 million in military equipment to Ukraine, which is expected to include Javelin anti-tank missiles. China’s envoy to the United Nations expressed dismay at the killing of unarmed civilians but stopped short of condemning Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whom President Xi Jinping has close ties, for the violence.
