"the news with shepard smith." good evening what is the point of the united nations if it's powerless to stop russia from slaughtering civilians in ukraine that was the message today from
4:02 am
the ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy. he begged the u.n. security council to do more to end the cruel invasion in graphic detail zelenskyy laid out the atrocities we're seeing in bucha, a recently recaptured suburb of kyiv he said russian troops murdered entire families, including children zelenskyy said they tortured innocent civilians, shot them in the back of the head execution style. some bodies still had their hands tied behind their backs. >> translator: they cut off their limbs, slashed their throats, women were raped and killed in front of their children their tongues were pulled out only because the aggressor did not hear what they wanted to hear from them this is no different than other terrorists such as isis. >> president zelenskyy played a video for the u.n. security council showing some horrors in bucha and other areas. a warning, we're going to show
4:03 am
you what zelenskyy says putin is doing to people. to censor it is wrong. the images are disturbing and hard to process. ♪ ♪ >> the reality in ukraine. the kremlin insists everything you just saw, all of it, was fake and that the ukrainians staged the bodies after the russian troops left but look at these satellite images these show the same bodies on the same streets weeks ago when the russians were still in firm control of that town these are three corpses in that street there's also this drone video from bucha recorded last month it appears to show the moment that russian armored vehicle
4:04 am
opened fire as a civilian comes around the corner with a bicycle. you can see the smoke coming out of the vehicle's gun nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel visited bucha and brings us one family's tragic story. >> reporter: this is just one family's house destroyed russian troops didn't just bomb this house, this is a house where irina lived with her husband and father after they shelled the house, the family came rushing out and they found the russian soldiers here the russians grabbed oleg, started to talk to him, they brought him down this street and they put him on his knees. irina was just coming out of the door and she was able to see the russians executing her husband while he was on his knees and there's still some of the blood here on the pavement >> one of how many stories we can't yet know but what can the world do to
4:05 am
stop putin from doing this again and again and again? we know he will. the white house is preparing to announce tomorrow even more sanctions to punish russia full team coverage on all of this tonight he have lan farkas, everett fishman on what more the west might be able to do and first kayla tausche on the administration's first response. kayla? >> reporter: shep, the administration has been saying for days that the images are horrifying and tomorrow the u.s. with g7 allies will announce yet another coordinated set of sanctions that will block any new investment into russia and widen the net of russian banks, oligarchs and family members whose business with the west is blacklisted. the new actions are the latest in an incremental buildup of sanctions after the first most punishing wave was announced in the immediate daze days following the invasion if member countries sign off it will cease about $22 billion
4:06 am
worth of trade with russia from banning the import of russian cole and the export of semiconductors and computers the u.s. treasury published new rules for banks like jpmorgan and citigroup to stop processing russia's debt payments today the white house was asked whether the goal was to force russia to default on itsdebt >> the biggest part of our objective here is to deplete the resources putin has to continue his war against ukraine and obviously causing more certainty -- uncertainty and challenges to their financial system is a part of that. >> reporter: russia has less than 30 days to make that bond payment totaling about half a billion or risk its first default in more than 20 years. >> kayla tausche, thank you. president zelenskyy gave a second speech today making the case for new powerful sanctions. during the address to spain's government he asked, how can we allow russian banks to generate profits while the russian
4:07 am
military tore tires ordinary citizens to death in ukrainian cities how can the countries of the world freely buy russian oil and allow russian ships into their ports? he went on, everyone in europe must simply stop being afraid. stop being weak. for analysis, edward fishman in the obama state department now a senior fellow at the atlantic council thank you very much, you've written extensively about this we know what they're doing they're murdering children, shooting innocents, carrying groceries on their bicycles. they're paying for blunder as the gas station for the world selling energy we buy that energy what do we do? >> shepherd, i think it's pretty clear. we need to stop buying all russian oil and gas. the biden administration to its credit already has a domestic embargo on russian oil that is just a drop in the bucket russia is still selling 5
4:08 am
million barrels of crude oil a day, 60% of which is going to europe i think the first agenda item, shep, is for the european oil to embargo russian oil itself the move today on coal is feeble as the lithe through waynian foreign minister said. the fact of the matter is when they are selling gas and oil on global markets, there is money flowing into the coiffeurs. >> a billion dollars a day but of course germany relies on that oil and gas and coal the german economic minister said if they were to abruptly cut it off, they would face shortages, mass unemployment and widespread poverty they argue it's just not possible to that, what do you say >> i think that's an exaggeration i want to be clear, there will be costs, right? the best estimate suggests a full oil embargo would cost
4:09 am
germany 1/2 a percent to 1% of a gdp. >> why not the rest of the world pitch in for germany as well suffer one suffer all because the children are dying >> that's exactly right. and, look, i think that there has to be some sacrifice it's not going to be cost free if the goal is to stop putin's war machine. we are going to have to shoulder some of the burden frankly, i think 1 or 2 percentage of gdp for germany is a small price to pay to shorten putin's runway that he has for his military effort in ukraine which is causing unfathomable atrocities. >> i want to get to your argument using iran. if the iranians have still managed to function with all of the sanctions in place against them, so where is the limit to what financial sanctions can realistically do >> i think it's good that you
4:10 am
brought up iran. with iran, they're exporting 2.5 million barrels of oil a day about half the amount of crude oil russia exports a day the united states was able to cut that to under 500,000 barrels a day. very substantial what i want to say here, yes, it will be hard to cut off russian crude oil, but it's definitely possible we have a playbook for it. we did it against iran it may not stop the war effort but it will force putin to make much harder choices to stop the war. when he has to make those types of choices he may change his calculus in ukraine. >> edward fishman, thank you so much. president zelenskyy told the united nations it needs to kick russia off the council or dissolve the council altogether. >> translator: where is the security the security council needs to guarantee it is not there although there is a security council. where is the peace where the guarantees it is obvious that the key
4:11 am
institution of the world which much assure the coercion of any aggressor simply cannot work. >> russia is a permanent member of the u.n. security council that means moscow can all by itself veto another decision any other member including the united states wants to make. president zelenskyy pointed out the key absurdity that the russians can easily block any move to block them evelyn farkas. evelyn, it is insanity that he sends his troops to murder children and he gets to make decisions about what happens to him in the world body. i mean, what can be done >> yeah, i mean, shep, it's a real weakness of the u.n. system that any country on the security council really almost can operate with immunity or at least without major consequences having said that, there are ad hoc coalitions of the willing,
4:12 am
as we know, that can take military action. there are other organizations that operate under the u.n. umbrella like nato that can take operational action that don't necessarily need a security council agreement or declaration by the security council, and more importantly, the security council itself has a lot of -- i mean, it has agencies, u.n. high commissioner for refugees, various agencies that help with humanitarian issues. what's really getting under my skin right now is the fact that unlike in other situations where we've had a hard time bringing a conflict to an end let's say in bosnia, for example, we did see the united nations and multi-lateral organizations actively trying to alleviate suffering on the part of the civilians. >> sure. but the -- >> go ahead. >> but the security council at this moment. who in the world can look at the security council with any sort
4:13 am
of reverence of any kind i mean, it is feckless at very best people have been trying to reform it for years. here we are in the middle of a conundrum that is embarrassing to hear from zelenskyy >> yeah, it is embarrassing. we let down rwanda we let down the rohynga. no one has done anything to stop russia in that context either. again, i think that that means -- that just means that the international community needs to look for other mechanisms >> yeah. >> i would like some of these organizations to adopt a little bit more risk. take on some kind of armed escort and try to go in and provide the civilians with some kind of relief, humanitarian relief i don't think we should be taking things off the table and we should be thinking creatively
4:14 am
and challenging vladimir zelenskyy. >> today mark milligave lawmakers a stark warning. listen. >> we are witness to the greatest threat to peace and security of europe in my 42 years. the russian forces are threatening to undermine european peace and stability and global peace and stability that my parents and -- >> not normally a man of hyperbole. is anybody getting it? >> i think people understand what's at risk and they understand the russians have used chemical weapons, threatened to use nuclear weapons. there's a real danger this war will spread. those of us who have focused on looking at vladimir putin and his calculus want this war to
4:15 am
end here in ukraine and want ukraine to prevail the sanctions aren't going to solve the problem as you and edward already mentioned it's really what happens on the battlefield that will determine this >> evelyn farkas, again, thank you. president obama made a return to the white house today. his message to democrats as new signs emerge of just how hard it's going to be for them to keep control of congress people dealing with long haul covid symptoms that just will not go away today the biden administration responds with a plan and twitter, twitter announces it's working on a new feature. and while its newest board member elon musk is a huge fan, the company insists, ahhhh, the two are not related.
4:16 am
4:17 am
former president obama back at the white house for a pep talk peter alexander asked him what he'd say to party ahead of this year's elections. >> what do you tell democrats worried about the mid terms. >> if you've got a story to tell, you've got to tell it. >> the former president was there to celebrate the 12th anniversary of obamacare the visit happening as president biden's approval ratings are in the tank just 40% of americans approve of the job he's doing compare that to president obama who left office with nearly 60% approval nbc's senior national political correspondent sawhil kapur is here. >> yes, they did president obama back five years after he left giving democrats a pep talk celebrating the
4:18 am
affordable care act, obamacare that was one issue he was willing to go to the mat for, willing to lose re-election for and said for a little while it looked like that might happen. that sound bite you played, he said democrats have a story to tell, they need to tell it this is something president biden has talked about as a lament from the obama administration they did not talk enough about their accomplishments and biden is determined not to repeat that mistake. president obama hinted at one of the big domestic pieces of legislation that president biden is trying to achieve and drew upon some lessons that he learned from the aca let's hear what he had to say. >> forget the bill passed. we had to make compromises we didn't get everything we wanted that wasn't a reason not to do it >> reporter: now the headwinds are fierce, shep president biden's ratings are down to 40% and the republicans have a 2-point advantage which puts them in very good shape to
4:19 am
take back the house of representatives if the landscape does not change. in addition, house minority leader kevin mccarthy announced he has raised $31 million and expects to use that to try to help flip the house of representatives this fall. >> huge sum of money sahil, if the republicans take it back, they'll do it without the michigan house fred upton. >> four of them, including upton, calling it quits. trump himself for his part celebrated that move in a statement saying upton quits, four down, six to go others losing badly. who is next? keep in mind, fred upton has served in congress for a long time, about 35 years now due to the quirks of redistricting he was pitted in a
4:20 am
primary for another congressman trump had endorsed if he runs and wins, it would be a sign that trump is not as politically strong as he seems the fact that upton is stepping down appears to be somewhat of a harbinger of republican politics for some time to come, shep. >> sahil, thank you. ivanka trump took calls from lawmakers behind closed doors. the ones investigating the january 6th insurrection at the capitol. she appeared virtually for about eight hours. democratic chairman ben nie thompson said she was answering their questions but not being chatty she is the former president's daughter she was at the white house and in the oval office during much of january 6th lawmakers asked her to testify on a range of critical topics including a january 6th phone call that her father made to then vice president mike pence jared kushner, also a white house official, he testified
