Nato leaders including US President Joe Biden assembled in Brussels on Thursday for the first of three back-to-back summits aimed at strengthening the West’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Motorcades drew up at Nato headquarters as a day of diplomatic drama dawned on which the leaders of the G7 and the European Union will also discuss the multi-tiered military, humanitarian and economic crisis that the war has produced.

Arriving as the war entered its second month, Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said leaders would agree to a more muscular posture on the alliance’s eastern flank to confront the “most serious security crisis in a generation”.
They were challenged to “keep the flame of freedom alive” by Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he announced that the UK would send 6,000 defensive missiles and £25 million ($33m) in funding for the Ukrainian military.

Mr Johnson also suggested going after Mr Putin’s gold reserves as leaders discuss the possibility of further sanctions, including a potential boycott of Russian energy. Other leaders talked about what was at stake in the progress of the war.

“We must ensure that the decision to invade a sovereign independent country is understood to be a strategic failure that carries with it ruinous costs for Putin and Russia,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.

Mr Biden landed in Belgium on Air Force One late on Wednesday, with a police cordon and barbed-wire fortifications providing the backdrop to his first visit to Europe since Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the attack on Ukraine.

Nato’s 30 heads of government will hear an address from Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as he pleads for more weapons to drive out the Russian invaders.

  1. Brown mascara is ready to take the place of your trusty black, words we never thought we’d write and mean it. It’s true though, suddenly the lash liquid shade is hot property when as recently as the last year you couldn’t give it away. Want to look like you have lash extensions but don\u2019t want to deal with all the hassle and upkeep? Coat your lashes with this brown mascara. The spiky, dome-shaped brush might look like a torture device, but it catches even the shortest of lashes to majorly lift, lengthen, and volumize. A deep black colour of mascara is preferred by most women over brown ones when applying mascara. A fringe in a brown tint, on the other hand, has its advantages! Adding brown mascara to your makeup bag is a great idea because there are a number of looks and trends that benefit greatly from it. Take a stroll down the brown aisle! Designed essentially as the dummy’s guide to applying liquid eyeliner, this triple tipped pen from Clarins was created to help make wonky lines and smudged lids a problem of the past. It works by placing the pen across the lid (depending on how winged you like to look), and then filling in the spaces in a dot-to-dot style fashion, allowing you to create a more smooth and even line. By fully colouring in the space between each lash this liner also helps to give the illusion of a fuller-looking lash line, with more intense (yet still natural-looking eyes). It looks technical but it’s super easy to use, while the felt-tip style nib is neat and hassle free – especially for liquid eyeliner novices. Colorful eyeliners are available in liquid form, gel form, as well in markers. If you are already a pro at using eyeliners, then liquid and gel ones are the best for you. If you are new to the whole eyeliner game, pen or markers are going to help you create precision on that wing. Pick the eyeliner that best suits your expertise.
