The US pledged an additional $1 billion in military assistance to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s government that includes artillery and advanced rocket systems, as Russia pushes to capture Ukraine’s last major foothold in the eastern region of Luhansk. 

Germany’s Olaf Scholz, France’s Emmanuel Macron and Italy’s Mario Draghi are planning to visit Ukraine on Thursday to meet Zelenskiy, even as the Kremlin further tightens its grip on European energy markets by curbing gas shipments.
