Texas school shooting: Biden to console grieving families

The first family will meet with community and religious leaders, as well as those who lost their loved ones to the violence that left 21 people — including 19 children — dead at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
US President Joe Biden on Tuesday announced sanctions against Russian banks and the country's wealthy elite after what he said was Moscow's launching of an invasion against Ukraine.
As he began his annual State of the Union address, US President Joe Biden asked lawmakers to stand and salute ordinary Ukrainians amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Biden also warned Russian leader Vladimir Putin that dictators have to pay a price for their aggression. We spoke to Martin Quencez, a research fellow and deputy director of the Paris office of the German Marshall Fund of the United States. He told us how Biden's speech was still very much addressed to a US audience, eight months ahead of the US midterm elections.
The US president's State of the Union address comes amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine. He said "freedom will always overcome tyranny" and that Vladimir Putin's attack was "premeditated and unprovoked."
With the city of Kharkiv devastated and Kyiv braced for attack by an approaching Russian convoy, we are asking whether the US has made the right calls on Ukraine. The message of Biden's State of the Union address was one of solidarity with President Volodymyr Zelensky. But seen from Kyiv, will this feel like enough?
The US will stop importing oil and natural gas from Russia, US President Joe Biden has said as the West escalates sanctions against Moscow over the Ukraine invasion.
During a nearly two-hour call, the US president called on his Chinese counterpart to rule out military and economic support to Moscow, to ensure Western sanctions are effective.
The US president met American troops stationed in Poland, before being briefed on aid efforts for Ukrainian refugees. Warsaw is hoping for a bigger NATO commitment in the wake of Russia's invasion of its neighbor.
US President Joe Biden's speech in Warsaw had strong words for Vladimir Putin, but even stronger words in support of a free world. DW's Bartosz Dudek writes that Biden may just have made history.
US President Joe Biden said Russian President Vladimir Putin "cannot remain in power" after the invasion of Ukraine. He also warned Russian forces against moving onto "one single inch" of NATO territory.
President Joe Biden has at last made lynchings in the United States a federal hate crime after more than a hundred years of delays.
As the war in Ukraine continues, US President Joe Biden is heading to Europe to meet EU leaders and attend an emergency NATO summit. His trip will also take him to Poland, which has taken in a vast majority of the 3.6 million Ukrainians who have escaped the conflict.
Did he go off script or was he on message? The Biden administration is partially rolling back what the US president said about Vladimir Putin at the conclusion of his Saturday speech in Warsaw. Washington insists it is not plotting or espousing regime change in Moscow, instead describing an "unworkable relationship" with the current master of the Kremlin.
