TOKYO -- As Group of 20 finance ministers and central bankers prepare to meet in Washington on Wednesday, members' unity is being further tested by a split over sanctioning Russia for its war in Ukraine.

The gathering is the first cabinet-level meeting for the G-20, whose members account for roughly 80% of the global economy, since the Feb. 24 invasion.
