Based on army correspondent Alexander Sladkov, over 20 thousand personnel and three.5 thousand items of apparatus have been withdrawn.
▪️The Russian Protection Ministry says that not a single piece of army tools and weapons was left on the fitting financial institution of the Dnieper. Apparently, studies from the sphere have been submitted this manner, as a result of there are sufficient personnel with captured tools. One other query is that this tools may very well be out of order for a very long time, and its evacuation appeared inappropriate…
▪️Russian artillery and air strikes, the usage of mines and explosive boundaries stopped Ukrainian items 30-40 km from the world of crossings throughout the Dnieper. We plotted this radius on the map and famous which settlements are already below the management of Ukrainian troops.
▪️All through the withdrawal operation, a large community of informers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Safety Service of Ukraine, in a rush to get “pardon”, transmitted knowledge on the routes of switch and the placement of Russian army personnel…

Bankrupt FTX Hit by Mysterious Outflow of About $662 Million Bloomberg. Be aware greater # than reported at FT.
Sam Bankman-Fried’s $32bn FTX crypto empire information for chapter Monetary Instances. From feedback:
The egregious a part of this story is that FTX’ meltdown seems fully attributable to 2 issues that any remotely competent government would know are improper: (1) as an change, lending buyer property to, of all issues, an affiliated entity; and (2) as a leveraged hedge fund-market maker, investing closely in a thinly-traded coin issued by an affiliated entity. Keep away from these apparent missteps, and FTX most likely might have had its $32bn slice of cake and eaten it too.
Does Bankman-Fried Deserve A Bail Out? Heisnberg Report (resilc). Scrumptious:
All I’m suggesting is that if, as a substitute of probably mishandling huge sums at a crypto change and buying and selling home, Bankman-Fried allegedly ran a drug change and buying and selling home, and if, as a substitute of being Sam Bankman-Fried, born on Stanford’s campus (actually) to a pair of extremely completed regulation college professors, he have been a hypothetical Terrell “Huge Dolla” Williams, born in a Chicago housing venture to a poor single mom, or Williams’s hypothetical boss, Diego “El Jefe” González, born to no person is aware of who in Sinaloa, and at present dwelling within the Chicago suburbs in a $4 million dwelling bought by his spouse, would he nonetheless have an lively Twitter account? (Possibly, below Elon Musk, however that’s a separate dialogue.) Would his organizations nonetheless be functioning in any respect? Would he be in discussions with an investor group to inject $9 billion into his crumbling empire? Would Bloomberg and Reuters nonetheless be reaching out for quotes? If not, why not? In any case, the situation I’ve simply posited assumes that no guilt has been established for Bankman-Fried, Huge Dolla or El Jefe. They’re all harmless till confirmed in any other case. Or not less than that’s the way in which the authorized system is meant to work….
Lastly, let me pose an much more uncomfortable query to readers: Who’s smarter, extra succesful and deserving our collective adoration: The Stanford-born, all-lanes-open whiz child who made $16 billion by means of authorized items and providers which some consider must be unlawful, or the kid born to nothing, with nothing and with no lanes open, who made $16 million buying and selling illicit items and providers which many individuals consider must be authorized?
