Hard Numbers: Sudanese state loses aid amid fighting, mass shooting in the Czech Republic, Giuliani files for bankruptcy, EU aid to Ukraine dries up
800,000: The UN World Food Programme has paused aid to the Al-Jazira region of Sudan, where it had formerly supported over 800,000 people. The paramilitary Rapid Support Forces overran the capital of the province, a former safe haven, and sent at least 300,000 civilians fleeing towards areas where the UN says it does not have enough resources.
14: At least 14 people were killed and more than two dozen wounded in a mass shooting perpetrated by a student at Charles University in Prague on Thursday. The shooter reportedly took his own life in what has been described as the Czech Republic’s worst fatal shooting since independence in 1993.
$148 million: “America’s mayor” is officially broke. Rudy Giuliani, the ex-mayor of NYC who also served as former President Donald Trump’s lawyer, filed for bankruptcy on Thursday. This came a day after a federal judge ordered Giuliani to pay $148 million for defaming two Georgia election workers he falsely accused of attempting to steal the 2020 election.$1.65 billion: Ukraine said Thursday that it has received the last portion of an 18 billion euro aid package from the EU, amounting to roughly $1.65 billion. The country has relied heavily on foreign support amid its war against Russian invaders, but political divisions in both the US and the EU have stalled additional aid packages. Ukraine has implored Western partners to send more assistance – and fast.
