EU agrees to move ahead on using Russian assets for Ukraine

BRUSSELS, Belgium: EU leaders on Thursday agreed to “take work forward” on a plan to use the profits from frozen Russian central bank assets to arm Ukraine, as Kyiv pleaded for more ammunition for its outgunned forces.
More than two years into Moscow’s war against its neighbor, Kyiv’s troops are struggling to hold back the Russian army as Western deliveries of weapons have faltered.
Meanwhile, Putin has tightened his iron grip over his country by winning a new six-year term at elections after opposition was crushed.
