US to Accept 100K Refugees, Expand Russia Sanctions

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The White House announced Thursday that the U.S. would accept up to 100,000 Ukraine refugees through the refugee admissions program and immigrant and non-immigrant visas. 

The U.S. will also expand sanctions targeting Russian parliament members and the central bank's gold reserves, while also providing an additional $1 billion in food, water, and medicine to Ukraine. The announcement was made as President Joe Biden and world leaders meet for summits in Brussels to address Russia's invasion of Ukraine as the Ukraine war stretches into its second month.  Western nations are reportedly discussing the possibility of sending anti-ship weapons amid fears that Russia might engage in amphibious assaults along the Black Sea coast.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the emergency NATO summit and called for both anti-ship weapons and anti-aircraft weapons.
