EU Leaders Spar Over Russian-Oil Ban
BRUSSELS—European Union leaders gathering here Monday sought to maintain unity against Russia and its invasion of Ukraine despite internal divisions over a proposed oil embargo on Moscow and differences over how much military equipment to provide Kyiv.
EU officials for almost two months have haggled over how to constrict energy imports from Russia, for which the bloc pays tens of billions of dollars monthly. European leaders have declared their eagerness to stop funding the Russian government and its ability to wage war in Ukraine. But reliance on Russian gas and oil in many EU countries has impeded those efforts.
