Members of the G7, the European Union and NATO are taking part in the Brussels Conference. The purpose of the conference is to put pressure on Russia to end the war in Ukraine. Joe Biden is attending all three conferences. The new sanctions were announced at a meeting of the G7, an organization of seven major industrialized nations, in Brussels.
