David Guttenfelder for The New York TimesZAPORIZHZHIA, Ukraine — Increasingly frequent explosions near a vast nuclear complex in southern Ukraine and the shelling of a nearby town where many of the complex’s workers reside have accelerated a civilian exodus from the area.

While Russia controls the nuclear complex, Ukrainian technicians continue to operate it under increasingly difficult circumstances. The shift boss intended to drive his family out of the area and was considering not returning, Mr. Orlov said. “Nobody knows what’s going on in their heads,” he said of the Russian soldiers stationed at the nuclear plant.

Sources told NBC News that in the last days of Trump's presidency aides rushed to pack up documents.

Trump's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. During his four years in office, Trump developed a reputation for being flippant with presidential records, which are required by law to be preserved.

Worse, Ms. Kraemer noticed that the software did not come close to capturing her labor. Each morning, Ms. Richardson and her colleagues had to project how many “productivity points” they would accumulate during the day’s work. Ms. Kraemer, the executive, said she sometimes resorted to doing “busywork that is mindless” to accumulate clicks. Though WorkSmart allowed payment requests for offline work, employees said managers did not always encourage them. Soon the company began gauging its workers’ productivity using a program called Monitask, according to Mr. Baratta and several former colleagues.

Trump’s style of handling White House documents has been described by people who worked for him as slapdash and ad hoc, contributing to the debacle he now faces. The source said that it was only after Jan. 6 — two weeks before Biden’s swearing-in — that he began to make serious preparations to vacate the White House. But the FBI collected subsequent information that indicated there were more sensitive documents, leading it to get a warrant to search Mar-a-Lago Monday. At least two dozen FBI agents executed the search warrant and carted off more boxes and records, according to the search warrant’s property receipt. But when media organizations tried to gain access to the records, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows argued in court that the records were not instantly declassified.

Not everyone can access classified documents, but the President can grant access through executive order. Trump could theoretically give Russian President Vladimir Putin a security clearance, a lawyer speculated in 2019. Most officials working with the government must have security clearances as well as a reason to access documents restricted by the government. However, a Top Secret clearance does not mean an official has access to all of the government's highest classified information. Trump could have theoretically given Russian President Vladimir Putin a security clearance during his time as president, Mark Zaid, a national security lawyer, told NPR in 2019.

The courts smacked them down for that, and a hurried and confusing race to represent 20 million New Yorkers is now the result. The races are important because they could help determine whether Democrats or Republicans win control of the House in November. More competition is good in politics, and the shapes of some of the new districts are more rational than before. But candidates were given little time to learn districts and voters to learn candidates. The editorial board’s choices for the best candidates to represent these districts are Dan Goldman, Jerrold Nadler and Sean Maloney.
