The Fed hiked 25bps as fully expected and the statement had 3 key highlights:
Hawkish - keeps "ongoing increases" (plural) language signaling no pause in March.
Small Dovish - adds inflation "has eased somewhat" but notes "remains elevated."
Dovish - Changes "pace" of future increases with "extent", as it transitions from the rate of hikes to the duration of higher rates before any pivot.
As Inflation Insights suggests:
"The one word change from the �pace� of future rate hikes to the �extent� of future hikes tells you that when the Minutes come out, we�ll likely read that officials have begun to debate when to pause."

Ukraine corruption scandal: Police raid oligarch, officials and tax authorities
Ukraine's security services (SBU) released footage of their raid on oligarch Kolomoiski's home. He is implicated in a one billion euro embezzlement case involving the country's oil companies.
The US-sanctioned billionaire supported Zelenskyy during his 2019 election campaign. They remained close for a time, though the Ukrainian president has since distanced himself.
Tax authorities were searched, according to the State Investigation Bureau, which accused the leader of the official body of enriching themselves "to the tune of several millions of dollars".
Investigators gave senior Ministry of Defence officials notices, officially declaring them suspects.
