WATCH LIVE: President Biden to announce new sanctions against Russia

The U.S. and its allies prepare to revoke Russia’s favored trading status in a new punishment for the invasion.

New satellite photos appeared to show a massive convoy outside the Ukrainian capital has fanned out into towns and forests near Kyiv with artillery pieces raised for firing in another potentially ominous movement.
