LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — The Group of Seven economic powers have told Russia  to “de-escalate” its military buildup near the Ukrainian border, warning that an invasion would have “massive consequences” and inflict severe economic pain on Moscow. Russia’s military escalation has dominated talks among Group of Seven foreign ministers in the English city of Liverpool.

Truss said Sunday that the group is “considering all options.”
