"We're always open to additional sanctions," Biden said shortly after the European Union announced plans for banning Russian oil imports and other new measures punishing Moscow for its bloody invasion of Ukraine.

"I'll be speaking to members of the G7 this week about what we're going to do or not," Biden told reporters.
