While Russia is now responding to that incident that happened over the Black Sea earlier today, Russian fighter jets collided with the U.S. drone forcing U.S. officials to crash the drone into the sea. Russia's defense ministry says the jets did not use weapons or impact the drone. The Pentagon's Brigadier general pat Ryder says the Russian pilots did display extremely unprofessional behavior. Fighter aircraft dumping fuel in front of this UAV. And then getting so close to the aircraft that it actually damaged the propeller on the MQ 9. We assessed that it likely caused some damage to the Russian aircraft as well. Rider says, while intercepts are not unusual, what sets this one apart was the extremely unsafe behavior of the pilots.

UK: Russian advance in Bakhmut could come with heavy losses
"Russian forces have made progress in the frontline hotspot of bakhmut in the eastern Ukraine. In muddy fields and dugouts near bakhmut, Ukrainian forces fire a powerful howitzer two S one towards Russian positions, Ukrainian paratrooper Michel tells the AP it's hard to defend the stronghold. Because a lot of enemy forces are concentrated here and also the weather is not allowing us to use vehicles. It's too muddy, Britain's defense ministry has said that units from the Russian controlled Wagner group have captured most of eastern bakhmut, but the UK warns that Russia's assault will be difficult to sustain without further harsh losses. Some of the reasons it gave were destroyed key bridges, and Ukrainian sniper fire that would deter the Russians from pushing ahead. I'm Karen Chammas

That's for all sorts of reasons that we can get into another day. But do expect some kind of disruption, something stopping short of a blockade because of course that's an act of war, but do expect that the PRC and the Communist Party in China are going to make life more difficult in that region. Still worried about Russia? I'm always worried about Russia. Someone was worried about Russia, but I think we're on top. And I think Ukraine means will win. And that was Ed price, he's principle for geopolitical forecasting over at ergo, staying with our coverage of the war, a Bloomberg big take and one of our most read stories on the Bloomberg terminal this past week looks at what is happening on the ground 12 months in. And as Ukrainians continue to fight to defend their country, the war effort is Tapping into a vast donor network. And that network has blossomed over the past 12 months to supply soldiers with everything from boots to battle tanks. We get more from Mark champion, Bloomberg news, senior reporter for international affairs. So I've been going in and out of Ukraine for the last year. And it really struck me every time I went. The amount of just stuff that was getting provided to the front wherever you were and you went into a company. They had a warehouse full of stuff. And it was all donated. And the more I was there, the more it became clear that this isn't just the normal stuff that you would expect about food for refugees and so on, but it was also weapons for the front. Cars for the front. Everything that you can imagine that people just all have relative there. Their sons and brothers and fathers are all at the front and they will try to find the stuff that they said they needed. And so they're filling all the gaps. But the scale has become really enormous. So one fund in particular that I talked to will come back alive. There is a 160 million in the last in the last year. There's others of similar scale. The Central Bank, if you want to just give extra money the defense ministry, Central Bank has raised $650 million. And beyond those funds, which they are funding sort of expensive $1 million drones and mortars and all sorts of things like that. But beyond those funds, you just have the tiniest little operations all over the place. One place I went to was a guy who was a former graffiti artist who decided he was just going to help all his friends who were going to the front and they were taking their cars. He camouflaged them. So he can not know his camouflage. And then also rifles and all sorts of things. That's such an interesting point. I wonder if that means that there's a sense on the ground that the folks who are responsible for the crowd funding understand the needs of civilians in the area in a way that may be the big players like the U.S. funders don't necessarily understand. Was that your impression Mark? Yeah, I think that's true. I mean, it's just a lot of gaps to fill. And the U.S. can't be on top of all of that. The Ukrainian defense ministry for reasons of money of bureaucracy or whatever, it can't do everything. And is this something that Ukraine has become very used to? Because they had very sort of inefficient and corrupt governments. They became over more than a decade. They built up this sort of instinct to crowdfund no matter what it is. A popular uprising like the maidan protests in 2014 or then when the war began in the Donbass in 2014, 15 immediately the first instinct is not to ask the government because you don't think you'll get anything government. If you give anything that government, you think it will disappear. So people have just become used to doing stuff themselves. They just instantly do it. And they just instantly began Facebook groups and so on to say, let's get a car for so and so that you can go to the front. So it's just really ingrained. And I think it is actually more important than the dollar value, simply because it says to every soldier at the front I've got an entire society behind me.

And the more I was there, the more it became clear that this isn't just the normal stuff you would expect about food for refugees and so on, but it was also weapons for the front cars for the front. Everything that you can imagine that people just will have relative their sons and brothers and fathers are all at the front and they will try to find the stuff that they said they needed. And so they're filling all the gaps. But the scale has become really enormous. So one fund in particular that I talked to will come back alive. They raised a 160 million in the last dollars in the last year. There's others of similar scale. The Central Bank, if you want to just give extra money to defense ministry, Central Bank has raised $650 million. And beyond those funds, which are funding sort of expensive $1 million drones and mortars and all sorts of things like that. But beyond those funds, you just have the tiniest little operations all over the place. One place I went to was a guy as a former graffiti artist who decided he was just going to help all his friends who were going to the front and they were taking their cars. And he camouflaged them. So he can not now camouflage the program vehicles and then also rifles and all sorts of things. That's such an interesting point. I wonder if that means that there's a sense on the ground that the folks who are responsible for the crowd funding understand the needs of civilians in the area in a way that may be the big players like the U.S. funders don't necessarily understand. Was that your impression Mark? Yeah, I think that's true. I mean, there's just a lot of gaps to fill. And the U.S. can't be on top of all of that. The Ukrainian defense ministry for reasons of money of bureaucracy or whatever it can't do everything. And is this something that Ukraine has become very used to? Because they had very sort of inefficient and corrupt governments. They became over more than a decade. They built up this sort of instinct to crowdfund no matter what it is. A popular uprising like the maidan protests in 2014 or then when the war began in the Donbass in 2014, 15 immediately the first instinct is not to ask the government because you don't think you'll get any government. If you give anything that government, you think it will disappear. So people have just become used to doing stuff themselves. They just instantly do it and they just instantly begin Facebook groups and so on to say, let's get a car for so and so that you can go to the front. So it's just really ingrained and I think it is actually more important than the dollar value simply because it says to every soldier at the front. I've got an entire society behind me. Talk to us about some of the people behind some of these crown crowdfunding efforts. We're talking about what Hollywood celebrities were talking about. Oligarchs were talking about everybody. Yeah, absolutely. So fund that was set up by the president president zelensky. He has one called the united 24 and they raised $287 million. And for that fund, he has really reached out and he's persuaded by Australian to be an ambassador to the fund. There's a number of other celebrities that have become attached to the fund in one way or another. And so they raised money. And then you have others who are, as you mentioned, the oligarchs, you know, some of the other guys who are not very popular and we're even seeing some years ago as being kind of pro Russian because they supported the party that former president Yanukovych used to represent. So are you not Ahmad who is the richest man in Ukraine? He has a big steel company called net invest. They owned as a stahl in Mario poder still plant where they were the last stand was made in Europe. They've lost a lot of their assets, but he has actually provided a 150,000 sets of bulletproof vests, which they made in his batteries. And 80,000 tank traps all kinds of stuff, which really does matter. Well, Carol, you bring up a great question about the people who fund this effort and who have kind of been the leaders behind it. I wonder mark if you can talk about the people who are most impacted by it. Is this civilians? Is it folks who are actually fighting? Who is most benefiting from this extra cash? Well, it really is everybody, but the Ukrainians are focused very much on people who remain in areas that are either at the front or they're in areas that were occupied and were then retaken by the Ukrainians. And services there have sort of broken down. Medical services, food is difficult to sort of distribute all those sorts of things. So as I say, the great strength of this is that it's incredibly flexible. It just kind of responds because everybody knows somebody. And they then move into these areas and provide services that the government is just incapable or too slow or doesn't have the resources to do. And it really is a kind of lifesaver in these areas. It is for civilians. But a lot of it is for the front for the soldiers. What's interesting too, and it's funny, you know, mark as we were getting ready and talking about your story in the newsroom. One of the things that came up from one of our producers, Ari gami. He said, you know, wait a minute. I don't understand. U.S. is sending billions of dollars in equipment and providing support. We know other nations and allies of the U.S. are certainly and of Ukraine are providing support, why is this ultimately necessary? Because nothing is enough. I mean, this is a big war. We haven't seen a war like this since World War II in terms of pure intensity. I mean, I've been other very intense wars, but not like this. And the Russian side in particular is very well armed. It has the entire, not the in times of the predominant part of the starts of the former Soviet Union that it built up for the Cold War. And in many ways, this is that they're running down through the Cold War stocks of the former Soviet Union. The Ukrainians, on the other side, they started this war with around 1600 tanks. Germany has 300 Britain has 226. So it's not like they had nothing, but you need so much in order to pursue a war like this. It just eats resources at an incredible rate. And you need a lot of everything because it gets destroyed. 90% of drones get destroyed. Pickup trucks that people bring, they get destroyed either because they get hit or they're just in an accident or they just get stuck in mud or whatever. It just eats through resources at an incredible rate. And to be fair, we've talked about the new double issue of Bloomberg business week that's out, cover story is, of course, marking the one year Russian invasion into Ukraine, but talks about specifically Maddie, the shortage of ammunition on both sides. I mean, both sides are going through a lot when it comes to any kind of defense equipment. And they're just kind of running through it. Yeah, and it's so critical. I wonder mark in our final kind of 30 seconds with you here if you can talk about you mentioned the intensity of the war. What is something that you understand about the situation on the
Taiwan reports Chinese balloon found on northern island
"Taiwan's defense ministry says a Chinese weather balloon has landed on one of its Outlying Islands amid U.S. accusations that such craft had been dispatched to worldwide to spy on Washington and its allies. A ministry statement on Thursday explained the balloon carried equipment registered to a state owned electronics company in other northern city of Tai yuan, which is part of the matsu island, just off the coast of China's Fujian province, reached by phone, a publicity officer at the company identified in the report as taiyuan wireless radio first factory, said it had provided electronics but had not built the balloon, adding the balloon was likely among those launched daily to monitor weather and was probably set off from the coastal city of Chi men with no fixed course.
Ukraine says Russia turns to decoy missiles, intel balloons
"A top 8 to Ukraine's president says Russia has altered its aerial strike tactics to fool Ukraine's air defenses. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. It's the war in Ukraine approaches its one year anniversary, McCulloch tells the AP the Russians are definitely changing tactics, firing decoy missiles without explosive warheads and deploying balloons in an effort to overwhelm Ukraine's anti aircraft systems into a bit of spying by offering too many targets as Russia hopes to increase its chances of hitting infrastructure facilities inside Ukraine. Maintains Ukraine's air defenses are adapting, and he says Russia is facing missile exhaustion, the waves of missiles expired since October depleting supplies. Moscow is not acknowledged such problems, but Britain's defense ministry backs up the assessment. Also renewed Ukraine's appeal for long-range missiles to strike Russian troop concentrations far behind the front lines. And he reiterated Ukraine's need for ammunition, saying we just don't have enough shells. As a drawn out war, favors Russia, not least because its population is more than three times that if Ukraine.

Ukraine: Russian forces pushing their advance on eastern city Bakhmut
"Ukraine's presidential office says fierce battles are raging outside back mud as Russian forces push their advance on the eastern city with heavy shelling and infantry attacks. The presidential office says at least 5 civilians and as many were wounded in action across the war torn country over the last 24 hour period, meanwhile, Britain's defense ministry says in a briefing, Russian forces are bolstering defensive fortifications along southern Ukraine, appearing concerned about protecting the southern fringes of the 800 mile battlefront. The U.S. embassy in Moscow has issued another warning for its citizens to depart immediately from Russia. I'm Charles De Ledesma
Joe Biden's 'F' For Failure
"When I say the president deserves an F if there were an F minus, I think I'd give him that. I mean, hey, look, we haven't wound up in World War three just yet, so I guess we got that going for us. But hey, he's got two years left on the clock, so anything is possible. And when you consider what has happened just in the last few days and the whole Chinese spy balloon, there's still another balloon floating over our western hemisphere when you consider the magnitude of that situation and the reality that we didn't do anything for 8 days. It traveled 4000 miles across our country. You really got to question his judgment. China says it reserves the right to respond. In kind. Except we don't really have any of these balloons that we know of for that the Chinese know of over their airspace. So if you take that a step further if you look into what they're actually saying here in the global times, tried in its own peculiar way to make this clear that they reserve the right to shoot down a civilian aircraft. Wow. Talking about an escalation. It's as though China really wants to escalate. Because now they're getting all full of bravado and thrown around rhetoric that's entirely inappropriate. Tonight, he's going to try and tell us, yeah, yeah, all under control, but let me share with you what the Chinese defense ministry spokesperson actually said and I quote the U.S. attack on Chinese civilian unmanned airship by force is an obvious overreaction. He added China reserves the right to use necessary means to deal with similar situations. Now you want to talk about overreacting. Meanwhile, what kind of idiot is going to believe that this was just a weather civilian operation. And by the way, how do you have two of them? Because another one was just found. I told you about it, I was in Venezuela, Colombia, Costa Rica, says the Chinese have apologized for it, but guess what it's still there?

missiles while invading Ukraine That's according to CNN who noted this is the first time this type of missile has been knowingly used in combat This comes after the Kremlin claimed one of its new hypersonic missiles destroyed a Ukrainian weapon storage facility Video posted by the Russian defense ministry shows a missile slamming into a building followed by a massive explosion Moscow said the strike was carried out Friday and destroyed a large underground weapons storage site And the prime minister of Norway says four U.S. service members have been killed during a NATO training exercise Norwegian armed forces said the soldiers were aboard an Osprey aircraft assigned to a marine expeditionary force and were on a training mission in northern Norway on Friday There's no word yet on the identity of the four service members I'm Jim Forbes I'm Barry Rudolph your listening to masters and business on Bloomberg radio are extra special guests today is Darren Palmer He is the general manager of battery electric vehicles at Ford Let's talk a little bit about some of the things that we're looking at in the future You mentioned how proud you are of the price points that you've introduced cars like the Mach-E or the E transit or the one 50 lightning what do you think is going to happen going forward in terms of pricing Not a battery hybrid but a regenerative I guess P HEV hybrid the maverick was priced at pretty inexpensive $22,000 for a compact four door pickup truck How cheap can battery EVs get in the future Well today so the F one 50 lightning was being included incentive that's available is really in the range right now of gas from 50 Right in the heartland of where we sell most of them So I could argue that today we have one of the first vehicles that has reached parity with an equivalent truck And I'd say equivalent yet the electrics faster than any F one 50 we ever made more talk than any F one 50 ever made Quieter handles better et cetera et cetera than any F one 50 ever And it starts at the price of the gap So there's one segment where we've managed to achieve it That one is with the incentive So that's helped us helps it bring to bring it to more people We are working on other vehicles not announced yet to bring the vehicles to more people a lower cost vehicle I can't say anything more about it at the moment but that's one of our missions and part of this huge investments we're making in batteries is obviously supporting that because the biggest component by far is the battery And already I can say that a Mac E is a similar cost to run over 5 years as a Ford escape The total cost spent is the same as a Ford escape already So that is also supported by an incentive at the moment but that's amazing for those that wake up to see that now They're getting a huge bargain and the charging networks already reached 90,000 plus So they're available everywhere And there's hardly anyone there yet So you also have the network to yourself So AV ownership at the moment is just fantastic You'll also find the parking spot for many places right next to the entrance because that's where the electric spot is And they're half empty as well So when you drive the feel like a VIP So it's a really good time to get into them now But we do have plans to bring vehicles that are even lower cost And we are moving to more segments So the three rows are next one along where it will family car sides that is so popular in America So currently the Ford explorer which I think comes with a third row is available hybrid You mentioned you're looking to do a three row SUV Can we assume we're going to see an E explorer sometimes soon So yes we've announced that we're working on that one It's a three row in the explorer is indeed three row So we're working on that now But I would say it's the same segment as a three row explorer I wouldn't call it any explorer We intend to reinvent what these vehicles can be And again it will not be an explorer of an electric motor in it It will be a new vehicle that offers new experiences that are game changing and spi directional power and mega power for the F one 50 But something things that are designed to delight the customers in this segment with things they want in their daily lives I won't say more about it yet but it continues to be an incredible vehicle again So previously you said EV adoption is similar to the process that the iPhone had to go through any groundbreaking product requires a readjustment into your life Is that what you're seeing with EV adoption once people make it part of their routine it's no longer the electric car it just becomes the car Oh yes I mean universally when people make the switch no one goes back It's the only analogy and when I try to get across to people to use the whole moving to iPhone or smartphone from flip phone No one goes back And before people moved they didn't know that They thought they understood what an iPhone was and because it looks similar to similar to a phone But they don't realize what it really is And once they owned it then they suddenly switched they'll never go back and they told everyone they know Exactly the same The most misleading thing about EVs is they look like a car And therefore you think it's like the cars you've known all your life and it's nothing like that So you're more people we can get in there to feel it the more people it will convert quickly So let's talk about that You know a lot of people a few years ago were projecting 2040 20 35 It doesn't feel like it's going to take that long Where do you think the EV market is as percentage of new vehicle sales in 2025 or 2030 Yeah So if you think a free person who gets one will never go back that's pretty much the role Right Maybe you start thinking about how fast is that going to take Now it took ten years for the iPhone to get everywhere Right Now similar phones right So it took time for.

time to check in with Bloomberg opinion But joined by our opinion columnist Adrian baldridge Now age is written a great piece on the terminal today about how to be a bad boss Yes a bad boss 40 tips on how to amirate your employees destabilize your organization and generally make the world a worse place Now Adrian thanks for joining us today You start off with the dangers of running your organization like a court Just tell us more Yeah I'm sure the bad really truly bad boss is probably the only tips for me and I had to do it themselves But my first principle is run your organization like a quarter and I'm indebted to this principle by Boris Johnson really I think it's created a pretty dire situation in Downing Street by running Downing Street like a court He has favorites he points people on the base of whether he likes the more agrees with them rather than competence And of course his wife is quite often called Carrie Antoinette For obvious reasons The thing I found fascinating about this as well is you really talk about some of the Silicon Valley leaders Many of whom have managed to build quite successful companies Amazon of course apple and Steve Jobs is there a sense that you can be a bad boss but still have a successful company the difficulty is that people try to imitate your approach Absolutely I think the Silicon Valley is now the world's leading center of manufacturing bad bosses not because people are bad bosses but because people who imitate them think that all they need to do is imitate the peccadillos of those bosses grow in enormous beards or spend your days surfing or roader skating or the rest of it And you will yourself then be a good boss Or a great leader And of course in most cases you're not a great leader Also it must be said that Silicon Valley is quite famous now for producing people who you think are going to revolutionize industries like Adam Neumann WeWork who looked talked the talk and raised an enormous amount of money then turned out to be a bit of a duffer as a boss So the actual record of Silicon Valley leaders is very mixed these days And just a quick one on management fads I like your fund manager quote mocking the idea that hellmann's mayonnaise should have a purpose other than just garnishing salad Yeah absolutely This was new to lever now Once everything to have a purpose everything must have a social purpose and one fund manager got so sick of listening to all this social purpose What is the social purpose of mayonnaise This is a social purpose of mayonnaise is to garnish my salad It doesn't have any other purpose than that There's a lot of management standards And Unilever which is one of the great centers of fascism has been really hit recently for not focusing on its core business and talking constantly about social purpose or sustainability even when it's not relevant The deep irony of course being that advertised at the Super Bowl and the whole hook of their ad was that you shouldn't waste food you should use it to with helmets mayonnaise to make something new They had an NFL player called with the surname Mayo running it Anyway thank you so much to.
