A bloc of 10 northern European defense allies, which includes the Baltic states, agreed on a call today that further sanctions were needed on Russia after its invasion of Ukraine, the UK says.

“The leaders agreed that more sanctions were needed, including focusing on (Russian) President (Vladimir) Putin’s inner circle, building on the measures that had already been agreed,” a spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office says following the call.
