LIVE UPDATES: US Inflation 'Global Phenomenon', Can't Be Taken Under Control 'Overnight' - Treasury

Russia launched its special military operation in Ukraine in February, after the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) appealed for help in defending themselves against Ukrainian provocations.
Russian armed forces and Donbass troops continue to advance amid the special operation, as they have liberated multiple towns in the region over the past weeks.
At the same time, Ukrainian forces are still targeting the Donbass cities with artillery fire.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Kiev's actions in the region amount to genocide and stressed that Ukraine should be demilitarised and de-Nazified.

Lavrov Expects US Attempts to Deprive Russia of Voice in International Affairs to Fail
Washington will not be able to deprive Moscow of a voice in international affairs or force it to comply with US-invented rules, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Sunday.

"They are seeking what they announced a long time ago, that Russia should know its place, Russia has no right to its own voice in international affairs, Russia must comply with the rules that the US has made up. I think, they understand perfectly well that they will not succeed," Lavrov told the Rossiya 1 broadcaster.

Relations between Russia and the US have deteriorated in recent months, with Washington and its allies waging a massive sanctions campaign against Moscow over its military operation in Ukraine.

US Urges All Oil and Gas Producers, Including OPEC, to Increase Production, US Secretary of Energy Says
The United States is calling on all oil and gas producers, including the OPEC club of the largest oil exporters, to increase their output to rein in soaring gasoline prices, the US secretary of energy said on Sunday.

"[President Joe Biden] has asked for all suppliers around the globe to increase production. That includes OPEC, that includes our domestic oil and gas producers," Jennifer Granholm told CNN's State of the Union show.

Granholm said she understood that Biden would also meet one-on-one with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, even though the Saudi royal family is accused of a role in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Granholm also said she would be meeting with chief executives of oil and gas companies in the coming week to discuss the lack of processing capacities at US oil refineries.

US Inflation is 'Global Phenomenon' That Can't Be Taken Under Control 'Overnight', Treasury Says
US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen admitted on Sunday that the national economy was expected to slow down because of "unacceptably high" inflation, but she argued that recession was not at all inevitable.

"I expect the economy to slow," she told ABC News' This Week show, "but I don't think a recession is at all inevitable."

"Clearly, inflation is unacceptably high," Yellen continued. "It's President [Joe] Biden's top priority to bring it down," she added.

Yellen explained that the reasons behind the recent inflation hike were global rather than local, and that they would not disappear overnight.
