tv New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar CNN April 14, 2022 4:00am-5:00am PDT
increase. that is sort of the data. that's the data they feel is necessary to submit for this emergency use authorization. 12 and overruled, john, if you are that age group, getting the booster is part of being upto date with convenience. obviously the same with adults. we'll see what the fda says. >> thank you so much for being with us this morning. "new day" continues right now. good morning to viewers in the united states and around the world. it is thursday, april 14th. i'm brianna keilar in lviv, ukraine, with john berman in new york. sit day 50 of russia's war on ukraine. and a large-scale assault on the donbas region could be days or
even hours away, according to french military officials. the kremlin clearly stating the mission in donbas is to conquer it. kyiv could be also targeted they say. there are contradicting reports this morning about a critically important russian warship in the black sea that suffered heavy damage. ukrainians claim they hit the ship with a missile attack. they have released new images reporting to show a special forces group. armored cars and trucks were destroyed. . >> consider the source. it aired on russian state tv claim to go show 1,000 ukrainian marines surrendering in
mariupol. cnn cannot verify the claim. ahead of russia's anticipated attack, president biden just unveiled an 800 million dollar security package. it includes javelins and military helicopters. >> this morning, the u.s. is talking about sending a high-ranking official to ukraine. we're told president biden and vice president harris are unlikely choices but possibly the choice is secretary of state or secretary of defense. >> also this morning, we have new details on the suspect in the new york city subway attack. first, back to brianna in ukraine. >> i want to bring in cnn's matt rivers here with me in lviv. let's talk about this warship. differing stories coming from the russians and the ukrainians. >> we just heard from the russian defense ministry in the last half an hour. they say the fire that was on board has been contained, there are no more explosions.
they say that sit more under control and will be towed to port. what we know from the ukrainian side, they say they started it by firing a shore-based cruise missile that hit the side of the ship that is named after the capital moscow. it does not only significantly affect the technical capabilities in and around this area, but it's also a very symbolic attack. it is the flagship of the black sea fleet, the russian navy. it is named after the capital of russia. it will have a big impact no matter which way you look at it. >> it is also, according to the ukrainians, a ship involved in the snake island incident from which that russian warship go f
yourself rallying cry comes from. >> 100%. one more element of similar bottomism to all of this. our viewers will remember in the beginning of this war, that is one of the things that showed you the ukrainian troops's state of mind. they are saying, we are capable. we can protect and defend our homeland. >> thanks for that. we do appreciate it. john. >> president biden unveiling a new $800 million military assistance package for ukraine. so what exactly is in it? one man has the answer. cnn's tom foreman here to lay it out for us. tom. >> eleven of these helicopters, many came out of afghanistan. they're soviet made.
mainly troop air kwrers. humvees in there. they have how witsers and tens of thousands of artillery round. 300 switchblade drones and 500 javelin missiles. they are hand-carried. they fit with small ukrainian units that have been so successful and a huge number of tanks and large pieces that you have seen knocked out of the russians. they get in close. strike and keep moving. and they have another thing that fits very well into this new theater or focus theater in the
east there is a lot of open ground. russians will tend to want to use artillery to use their tanks in support of ground personnel. it will give them the ability to see attacks. that is more favorable to the russian way of fighting. it is incredibly important. pretty important to what they are doing there. of course there's more protective gear for the troops fort ukrainian side, medical equipment, body armor, helmets, that sort of thing. they really are racing time to try to get all of this to the ukrainians so they can deploy it, get it in position and use it when this attack goes in ernest. there will be additional training needed for the how itsers and the switchblade
drones. >> an aid package tailored for this area of the country. >> next hour we will speak to press secretary john kirby about all of this. brianna. >> let's bring in adviser to president zelenskyy's chief of staff. what can you tell us about this russian warship? did ukraine attack it? >> for russian open source they had a fire on board. some romanian or turkish sources say they're going down.
but russian minister of defense today declined this and says they tried to provide security measures on this. i don't have real information about this. i prefer to wait and check quietly what sources say. >> no, no. i understand that. can you tell us about mariupol? russians say marines there surrendered. is that true? does ukraine still hold part of mariupol or is it in russian hands? . >> in mariupol, the brigade was divided, the different regions of defense. some of them tried to escape to the north of the city and was captured.
some of them go to azov. they are united and still keeping their regional defense. that is as of right now. >> some are still, you say, are there -- >> it's about more times less -- >> what is more times less? >> russians say they kept in prison 1,000 marines. it is more times less than 1,000. >> okay. i understand. we are getting word that the biden administration, it looks like they may be sending a high-level official, cabinet-level official to ukraine. who do you want to see come, and is this enough since it isn't president biden?
>> it could be minister of defense, general austin probably. our negotiations right now with united states is to achieve by ukraine. it is most important we need right now. because if we not have them, it will take more and more weeks. if we take heavy weapons, we can take them out. if not, it means more buchas here. >> we see that, it seems, where russian forces are he treat. we see that left in their wake. the weapons that ukraine has gotten tprfpt u.s. and europe, can they get to the ukrainian troops out east in time? it seems to be this impending
assault by the russians. >> i think this will take weeks. but even after weeks, we still need this weapon to slow the russians down. because if russians stay, i repeat again, it's more and more buchas. right now we have three or two little villages where we can proclaim new buchas. >> oleksiy, i thank you for being with us and updating us. good to see you. we appreciate it. >> thank you so much. right after a nearly 30-hour manhunt, a suspect in the new york city subway mass shooting has been arrested. and sources tell us the 62-year-old alleged gunman called a tip line himself, which helped lead to his capture. he will face a judge in federal court today. he is charged with violating a
law that prevents terrorist attacks against a mass transportation system. joining me now is retired officer jillian snyder and attorney at law and "early start" anchor, laura jarrett. look, he called the tip line himself. what does that tell you? >> there's a lot of reasons he may have done that, honestly. maybe he felt there would be vigilanteism. 10 million eyes on him. maybe he was scared for his own safety and thought he would be safer in capture. . >> a short subway ride from where the crime took place. why is it you think he didn't try to flee? . >> miss photo was everywhere. this made international news, honestly. my brother-in-law called me from france to make sure we are okay. people know what happened. people recognize him. and i think he knew we were okay. . >> it sounds like you're saying the way law enforcement went about capturing him had a big
impact in the way this all happened. >> they disseminated information in realtime. they put it out to the public. they wanted them to be involved and on the lookout. and i think the way the nypd and the fbi handled this is outstanding. . >> counselor, explain to me the charges that he faces. this is something we haven't seen that much. >> it's interesting. you'll remember in the beginning investigators said we don't think this is terrorism. i think a lot of people are confused about that. you think of terrorism as an intent to intimidate the public or the government. but a lot of people don't realize there is no stand-alone federal terrorism statute. you have to have some other connection. here authorities have lucked up because he did this on a train, mass transportation, which happens to be one of the ways you get someone with a federal charge like that. it is a significant charge. it carries life in prison if convicted. here he has left such a trail of
evidence online through all of these rants and all of these youtube videos and all the planning that went into this, including all the stuff that he actually left at the scene of the crime. >> what role do you think the videos will play? >> it goes to intent. a lot of questions about motive. it seems a lone wolf mentally ill situation as of right now. but he's talking about doing things on trains. he's talking about there need to be more mass shootings. if you have some of it, maybe we can play it. it's disturbing stuff. it's a lot of rants, racism. it provides a trail and a peek behind the curtain into his intent. >> the colloquial known as the insanity defense. >> with that, you don't walk scot-free. there is a process that goes along with it.
we will see if he tries to mount that. he has a history, obviously, of criminality. he's never been charged with a felony before, which is why he was able to get a tkpwub. >> eric adams, the mayor there, told me he wish social media had done more to monitor this to prevent this. how possible is it? . >> it's so hard. so many people put so many different things. again, freedom of speech. people can kind of say what they want on social media. of course we should be looking for any threats. and the fbi does that. the new york city police department does that. they will flag anything that's suspicious. they will let the precinct know there might be a threat imminent. we will get what level of threat it is and what we can do to intervene. >> are you surprised? >> 30 hours is very impressive. . >> they did incredible work there. thank you for being with us this
morning >> sure. soon we will hear from one of the heroes who spotted the suspect in the subway shooting and helped get him off the streets. this just in, new york attorney general is watching a price-gouging situation in the oil and gas chain. in ukraine, a more in consolable after finding her son's lifeless body in a well. , but he was busy working from home.e... .....so he scheduled with safelite in just a few clicks. we came to his house... ...then we got to work. we replaced hihis windshield and ininstalled new wipers to protect his new glass, while he finished his meeting. let safelite come to you. >> man: looks great. thank you. >> tech: my pleasure. that's service on your time. schedule now. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ for people who are a little intense about hydration. neutrogena® hydro boost lightweight.

investigation by the ag into whether or not the oil industry has engaged in price gouging. it is believed to be the first in the nation in response to this current period of high gas prices and reflection of anger in washington and main street about the high prices and the fact that oil companies are making a lot of money. although i would point out in 2020, all these companies lost a lot of money when prices crashed. prices go up, they go down. the other thing here is that this is a big deal because of how broad it is. new york law gives authorities wide-ranging power to investigate the entire supply chain. not just the super major companies but the refiners, independent operators of terminals and pipelines. again, looking at gas prices, 4.07 a gallon is high. it is down significantly from a missouri. new york was looking at 4:50 a
month ago. it's come down but not as fast as they have come down. stay tuned for what this turns out. >> matt, thank you very much. >> thanks, john. >> brianna. all across ukraine, mothers are grieving for children who have been killed in this war. almost 200, according to the ukrainian government. what you're about to see is heartbreaking. it is difficult to watch. a mother in a village near kyiv discovering her son's body dumped in a shallow war after russian forces retreated .
>> we are told she recognized her son by his shoes. that is the pain, the pain of one family, berman. >> as the russians have pulled out of so many towns in the north there, the things that people are finding are horrifying. just horrifying. more on our breaking news. a key warship severely damaged. it hit the ship, but russia denies that. the pentagon joins us live. plus, the man who captured this video of the accused subway shooter being hauled away in handcuffs joins us now with his story. tastes great in our iced coffees too. which h makes waking up at 5 a.m. to milk the cows a little easier.

hours from now, the man suspected of shooting 10 people on a crowded subway train in brooklyn will face a federal judge in court. francisco puebla captured this video of the arrest. he recognized the suspect walking down the street and flagged police. and francisco joins me now. thank you so much for being with us this morning. why don't you just tell us what you saw. >> yeah. so basically we were three guys outside the store where i work. and so basically we were installing new cameras outside. that's when this person walked by. when i saw his face, i recognized him right away. at the same time i feel kind of panicked because he was carrying
a backpack on his right-hand side. it was heavy. he was talking to himself. i asked the gentleman next to me, muhammad, tell me if i'm right or wrong, i think this is the guy that did the shooting in brooklyn. and he just said, yeah, i think he is. he pulled out his phone and looked at the picture and said, yes, man, this is the guy. after that he told me to call 911. i said no. i'm not 100% sure if it's him. and i don't want to put someone in trouble if i'm not 100% sure. so i wouldn't do that. but in that moment, sadly in that moment, it was a red light right on the road. and then police car, i saw right on the road.
and so what happened, i went straight up to the police car and told the officer i just saw the man that -- the one that did the shooting in brooklyn. and he just told me, okay, what is he wearing, what is he carrying? i told him he is wearing a cap and carrying a backpack on his right-hand side and he's right in the middle of the block. i can still see him from here. he's right there. the police arrived slowly one more block. they stop and get out, both police officers. and that's how they get him. >> did you see the arrest itself? was there any resistance? >> yes. first of all, when the police was there, i didn't go in right
away because i was afraid and because of the backpack on his hand. who knows what he carries in the backpack. so i stayed back. but eventually when i saw that they had already arrested, that's when i went there and then i see that it was him. >> what a moment that must have been. you told me about the backpack. you were concerned because he was wearing a backpack. what else was he doing or saying? what was his behavior like when you first observed him? . >> well, when he passed by right next to us, he was just talking bad words, talking to himself and continually walking right on the street. . >> just walking by. did it look like he was trying to hide? >> yeah. >> did it look like he was trying to get away from the police when they arrested him? . >> not really. he was just walking right in between the whole bunch of
people, you know, like a regular person. yes, it was a scary scene. >> what was the scene like in the village after the arrest? were people relieved? how did you feel? >> well, i feel better. i work almost all my life in the east village. when i see something like this, it's just like -- i was worried. but since they caught him, i feel a little safe. but, yes, it's very -- you know, hard what i left yesterday >> did you ride the subway yesterday before he was caught? >> yes. yes, i take the subway every day, every morning. . >> and how do you feel about taking the subway now after all of this happened? >> well, i kind of worry.
every time you see some people inside the train talking to themselves i feel worried. this is like every day you see inside the train. so it's also kind of sad how we are living in these days. >> yeah, it is. one last question. given that law enforcement put this guy's picture everywhere, do you think them doing that helped to identify him? how important was it, all the focus that was out there over the few hours before? >> no. i think that was the smartest part the police did. they put the face and the description. basically what i -- i recognized him because his body, a big man. and i recognized his face. yes, it was very helpful, actually
>> francisco puebla, thank you for being so alert there in the east village. we wish you the best going forward. . >> thank you very much, guys. all right. we do have breaking news out of ukraine. new intelligence shows the russian assault on the eastern part of the country is set to happen within days. will american weapons get there fast enough? the pentagon joins us live. elon musk offering to outright buy twitter. a take it or leave it offer for all of twitter. what's going on here? breaking news on that coming up.

>> reporter: i'm barbara starr at the pentagon. biden administration officials say they see recent evidence of continuing poor morale problems inside the russian military that the troops inside ukraine are disillusions. they feel they were not prepared for what they are facing in this invasion. but also that the russia officer corps is frustrated with the performance of the troops and the performance of their own colleagues. we will have to see how this all plays out as thousands of troops are expected to move into the donbas in eastern ukraine for continued fighting. i'm kylie atwood at the state department. with the biden administration announcing $800 million in new security assistance for ukraine, the pentagon says they are looking at options to train more ukrainian troops to be able to use switchblade drones that the united states is providing them with. now, they are small portable
drones that have war heads that detonate on impact. according a senior defense official, they could occur with u.s. troops that are based in the eastern flank in recent months of course to bolster their defenses. and john kirby said these could be put together very quickly. >> reporter: russia has blacklisted 398 members of the u.s. house of representatives in direct retaliation for the u.s. move last night to sanction 328 members of russia's lower house of parliament. given that several members of congress, including speaker phroes pelosi were sanctioned and more measures will be coming in the future in response to
u.s. sapnctions. >> reporter: u.s. officials on wednesday warned hackers developed tools capable of being used to disrupt energy facilities. while there isn't even evidence the tools have been used in actual cyber attacks, it's a series in warnings that hackers have taken an increasing interest in these type of facilities. multiple agencies encouraged u.s. critical infrastructure operators to be vigilant for this new threat. while it is unclear who is responsible for the new hacking tools, u.s. cybersecurity firm said there is circumstantial evidence pointing to russia. >> as russia's attacks in ukraine intensify, more than 4 million ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries. just over 30,000 refugees are seeking safety in estonia. scott mclean has more on this. scott. >> reporter: hey, brianna. estonia got 116 refugees a
couple of years ago, mostly from the middle east, syria and afghanistan. for this small country, that was a lot of people. now they suddenly have 30,000 ukrainian refugees. almost all of them women and children. the last two months, this has been a mad scramble for the government to find plates for them to stay. hotels are quite expensive. instead, the government came one this. this is the top deck of a cruise ship. normally this would be shuttling people back and forth from latvia to sweden. now it is parked here in talinn. this is the 11th floor. there are seven other floors that look a lot like this with a lot more space, actually, where people can gather, mill about. the kids can run around and be kids here. they have all the space in the world. the rooms are extremely small here.
some will only hold about a bed and maybe a tiny little bathroom. so there's not a whole lot of room. that is a lot better than a school gymnasium or sheltering in a bomb shelter in ukraine. the government tells me that by and large estonians want to help ukrainians which is why they are being so generous in taking so many. it is obviously a big financial burden. but estonians understand the constant threat of russian aggression. they have a lot of empathy for ukrainians. everyone here has a story. we met people from all over the country. some fled ukraine when bombs got too close. some in irpin. one said her son was having panic attacks from the constant sirens. kids are doing online schooling back in ukraine. one woman i was speaking to her son was doing school and he had the class canceled because there were sirens back in ukraine where the teacher was located.
so there are all kinds of challenges. the one constant that you find with almost everyone is everyone wants to go home at the first possible opportunity. though the government says for a small country that desperately needs more people, especially younger people given they have an aging population here, estonia would like to see a lot of people stick around for the long run. brianna. >> it is really sweet to see those kids just being kids, scott. thank you so much for that report. this war in ukraine is stolen childhood on an unimaginable scale. you saw the stroller in the aftermath of the kramatorsk train station. we have seen parents writing personal and contact information on their children's bodies in case they are orphaned, according to the "new york times". and unicef says two-thirds of the kids have been displaced in
their homes, fleeing cities for safer part of ukraine, for safer parts of the world. but some never made it. 12-year-old veronica died in chernihiv as her family tried to escape shelling. russian forces hit their car. as she tried to run for safety, her mother told her she was killed as a shell came down near their car. in carson, 5-week-old and his sister died when their family car was riddled with bullets. itv told their story. >> reporter: there were no survivors. the family's golden tpweurl. mother anna, a teacher. oleg, a dedicated grandfather. they all perished. >> their uncle listened to it on speaker phone. he said he heard the soldiers shoot the car to pieces. he told itv her heard the
5-week-old crying. he was clearly injured. he said he cried for two minutes, and then he went silent. 10-year-old anastasia died in a town north of kyiv. her cousin told "the times" of london, they shot their weapons at random. she was struck and killed. "new york times" capturing the moment a russian mortar struck a known evacuation route for those fleeing the suburb of kyiv. >> he said he learned of their death after seeing a total of their bodies on twitter because he recognized the luggage lying
next to them. he spoke to cnn's erin burnett. >> translator: they are normal cheerful children. my son was older. he was 18. and he was in second year of university. he studied and wants to become an i.t. professional. he studied programming. and my daughter was 9 years old. and what she liked, dancing, painting. she studies english. they were normal cheerful children. >> a cluster bomb killed another girl names elisa near sumy after it fell on her school, according to to an instagram post from the first lady of ukraine. she died with her grandfather as he used his body to try to shield her, according to the
post. russian forces shot and killed a 10-year-old and her parents as they tried to escape kyiv in a car. they injured her 13-year-old sister, sophia, and 5-year-old brother simeon as well. he died a few days later at a children's hospital, according to the the "telegraph." his sister in critical condition, unaware that she was the only member of her family left. in kyiv, russian forces shelled the home of a 2-year-old, killing the little boy as he slept in his body. his father oleg burying him in a small coffin. >> translator: i don't know if there is a god. what is all this for? for what? a 2-year-old child who hasn't experienced life yet. a 2-year-old child who died for nothing. >> 4-year-old sasha was fleeing with his grandmother near kyiv when the boat they were trying
to cross the dnipro river capsized. they were under heavy artillery fire. his grandmother drowned. his body was found last week, his mother said on facebook. 200 children have been killed in this war so far. but that is the official count, though it is likely a gross underestimate that doesn't include those in places where active fighting is under way, where officials are still working to confirm deaths. in mariupol, the mayor says 210 children died in his city as russians laid siege to it. a protest, 210 little pairs of shoes symbolizing their lives. russian forces bombed the drama theater in mid-march as more than 1,000 sheltered. "children" clearly written in russian on the building outside. and an 18-month-old in mariupol
