Group of Seven leaders in their Monday meeting in the German Alps were finalizing plans to pursue a price cap on Russian oil, raise tariffs on Russian goods and impose other new sanctions.

The U.S. was also preparing to announce the purchase of an advanced surface-to-air missile system for Kyiv to help Ukraine fight back against Vladimir Putin’s aggression. That’s according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity before the formal announcement.
