European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen unveiled a proposal for new sanctions against Russia that will be discussed over the next few days, including phasing out the European Union’s dependency on Russian oil and refined products.

The plan also aims to disconnect Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank, from the SWIFT bank transfer system. More civilians are being evacuated from Mariupol on Wednesday, according to the regional governor.

Russian missiles struck electrical substations around the western city of Lviv, close to the Polish border, causing blackouts on Tuesday, the mayor said.
