Leaders from the Group of Seven wealthiest democracies ended their summit in Germany promising to “urgently” explore price caps on Russian oil and gas.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky again urged the United States to name Moscow a state sponsor of terrorism — a designation that would trigger significant penalties — after a Russian missile strike on a shopping mall in the central city of Kremenchuk killed at least 18 people. In a Tuesday speech to the U.N. Security Council meeting, Zelensky said Russia should be stripped of its seat on the council and a tribunal should be established to investigate Moscow’s “daily terrorist acts.”
