The two first ladies met at a school in the border town of Uzhhorod. It was Mrs Zelenska's first appearance in public since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on 24 February. The US imposed new sanctions - including visa curbs on 2,600 Russian and Belarusian individuals - in response to the Russian invasion. Three Russian TV stations and executives from Gazprombank were also sanctioned by Washington. Meanwhile, G7 leaders said they were committed to phasing out or banning Russian oil.
