Russia withdraws, likely planning a counterattack to prevent Ukraine from reclaiming Kherson:
-Russian soldiers, patrols and checkpoints have suddenly disappeared in the city center for the most part and most Russian civilians have left.

-The Russian flag was taken down from official administrative sites (not clear by who)

-Kremlin-appointed administrators have relocated to a site 50 miles away — after looting anything of value they could take, residents and Ukrainian officials said.

-Russian troops have not decamped from the area

-Ukrainian military intelligence says Russia has deployed some 40,000 soldiers to the western bank of the Dnipro River to stop the Ukrainian military from reclaiming Kherson.

-Vladimir Putin said on Friday that civilians in the Ukrainian region of Kherson must be removed from the conflict zone, state-owned news agency RIA reported.

-Vladimir Putin said “most dangerous actions” are happening in Kherson as he calls for people to leave.

Putin tries to freeze Ukrainians out:

-Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has accused Russia of engaging in “energy terrorism” after Russian strikes on Ukraine’s energy network left millions of residents without power.

-Russian has used drone/missile strikes to target energy infrastructure in recent weeks.

-On Thursday, Zelenskyy said about 4.5 million people were without electricity across the country. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said 450,000 apartments in the capital alone did not have on Friday.

Putin has his bluff called on grain trade deal (shoutout to @just444 for bringing this up in the last post):

Update: He says after the deal expires they could quit again (lol)

-President Vladimir Putin reserved Russia’s right to withdraw again from an international agreement allowing Ukraine to export grain via the Black Sea

-If Russia did so, however, Putin said it would not impede shipments of grain from Ukraine to Turkey.

The official numbers for Putin’s recent draft are in:
