9:00 pm
this is cnn breaking news. hello and welcome to our viewers here in the united states and here around the world. live from cnn headquarters in atlanta. now, as the war in ukraine enters a critical phase, the president calling for a new package to support the military people. he's asking congress to approve $33 billion in additional funding. now, if aapproved, this would bring the total u.s. spending on
9:01 pm
ukraine to some $50 billion since the start of the war. joe biden says investing in ukraine's freedom is a small price to pay to punish russian aggression and reduce the risk of future conflict. >> we're not attacking russia. we're helping ukraine defend itself against russian aggression. just as putin close to launch his invasion, he can make the choice to end this brutal invasion. our unity at home and with our allies and partners and sending an unmistakable message to putin. you will never succeed in dominating ukraine. >> now, we'll have a closer look at what the aid package entails in about 30 minutes or so from now. let's go to lviv in ukraine. that's where we're going to pick things up from here. >> reporter: very good morning to you, michael. ukrainian officials this hour
9:02 pm
are condemning russian strikes while he was wrapping up his visit to the capital on thursday. now, ukraine's emergency services one missile hit an apartment building, setting it on fire. as you can see the smoke billowing from those windows. part of the first two floors were destroyed and authorities say ten people were injured. zelenskyy said that attack happened right after he finished meeting with the u.n. chief who wasn't harmed. he spoke of the urgent need for humanitarian corridors to e vacuum weet sids in mariupol. a ukrainian official in the city says the azov still planned hasn't been hit, meanwhile, the russian air strikes yet. hundreds of ukrainian soldiers are held up there along with hundred of civilians.
9:03 pm
he also visited the kyiv suburb of bucha were schools of civilians were found dead. zelenskyy says ten russian servicemen have now been identified as suspects in crimes committed there. meantime, the u.s. says russia isn't making much headway in its renewed offense i in the east with a senior official calling moscow's progress, quote, slow and uneven. with no end in site, the secretary-general says ukraine needs to be supported for as long as it takes. >> we need to be prepared for the long term. it's very unpredictable and fragile situation in ukraine, but there is absolutely the possibility that this war will drag on and last for months and years. >> reporter: jim has more now on where things stand.
9:04 pm
>> reporter: president biden standing firm. >> aggression will not win. threats will not win. we are prepared for whatever they do. >> reporter: as putin warns of retaliation should other nations interfere with the conflict in ukraine and cuts off russian natural gas supplies to neighboring countries. >> we will not let russia intimidate or blackmail out of these situations. >> biden said the russian conflict was becoming a proxy war between -- >> abject failure. no one should be making idle comments about the use of nuclear weapons or the possibility to use that. it's irresponsible. >> u.n. secretary-general on the ground in kyiv today visiting the nearby towns of bucha, and -- >> there is no way a war can be acceptable in the 21st century.
9:05 pm
look at that. >> the bodies of more than a thousand civils have been recovered. >> innocent civilians were living in these buildings. they were paying the highest price. >> he met with the ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy after meeting with putin first in moscow on tuesday. >> this war must end. i am here to say to you, mr. president, and to the people of ukraine, we will not give up. >> russia's assault is now focused on key areas in east ukraine. russian forces are making, quote, slow and uneven progress in the donbass in part because of ukrainian resistance and poor morale. the steel plant in mariupol in the south, the last ukrainian holdout in the city, and shelter for hundreds of civilians, hit by the heaviest russian air
9:06 pm
strikes yet. this video is said to show the aftermath at a medical hospital on the steel plants grounds. the city of hersan rocked by russians as well. russians have now taken the local government, attempting to rad kate its ukrainian identity, and yet video shows protestors claiming glory to ukraine as tear gas is set off. >> michael is an investigative reporter for the new york times. he joins me now from ukraine. michael, great to have you on the show. and we saw there as you heard there from jim, that missile strike in kyiv last night, but we've also seen some of the heaviest shelling in mariupol's steel plant. i know you have been speaking with some of the soldiers inside that plant. give us a sense of what they
9:07 pm
have been telling you. >> the situation continues to be grim. obviously, these rocket attacks and the heavy bombardment that we saw yesterday continues to drive them further and further into a corner. their situation was already becoming untenable. they're running out of ammunition. they're running out of food and water. what i'm told about the bombardment yesterday is it called a cave in in a field hospital that i spoke to one of the commanders last night who told me it's impossible to say how many people might have been killed or injured in that attack. he showed me the video he had taken from inside that field hospital a couple of days ago in which there are dozens of wounded laid out on the floor, some of them with absolutely gruesome injuries. they're running out of an
9:08 pm
medicine to carry out surgeries. they are working with injured soldiers, but the situation is becoming critically dire. >> it is dire, and it does seem like it's gotten worse in the last few days of course given those strikes we saw. we also heard them, though, michael, making a fresh appeal to the world yesterday hoping perhaps the secretary-general would help in creating some sort of evacuation. the trip it seems with the u.n. secretary-general hasn't quite gotten the success people were asking for. why do you think that is? >> it certainly wasn't a success when a missile strike hit kyiv at the time the secretary-general was standing there. i think the kremlin under putin has its own agenda, and it's going to follow that agenda. there's going to be very little brought by the u.n., which the russian government has basically
9:09 pm
accused of being in cahoots with the west on this. so i don't know that gu ter res' visit from the outset was set to achieve much success. the soldier in the azov steel plants in mariupol have said that they're ready to leave. this is the last holdout in that city. should they leave, russian forces would control it in full. but rather than give some kind of corner out, which would allow these fighters to get back on the battlefield, russia has continued to bomb this factory into olive on. there are civilians looking for a way out as well. >> just explain to our viewers because i think this is really important -- why they simply just don't walk out. what are their fears here? >> one of the fears is they don't trust the russian government to honor the rules of war. many of them that i've spoken to
9:10 pm
feel that if they were to hand themselves over to russian forces and just surrender, they will be killed or executed. russia has in the past offered terms of surrender to ukrainian troops only to turn around and kill them later. so there's no faith in any kind of russian deal at this point. the soldiers are willing to negotiate some kind of a deal that allow the civilians at least to get out, but so far any sort of green corridor that they've attempted to negotiate hasn't been brought to fruition. the russian government hasn't permitted it. >> and there's another element to this too, michael, and i'm sure you have heard being ither that some people are being sent, forcibly sent, to russian he will territory, and that is a huge concern no doubt for any of those civilians wanting to come
9:11 pm
out, seeking a place of safety. >> right. there have been a number of people who have been directed. people who have surrendered or have south a way out of these regions that are under heavy fire who have been directed to russia. though there's a bit of nuance in this story because some who get to russia are processed through filtration camps and end up making their way west any way back to ukraine or back to european countries. so it's not as if the russian government is forcibly holding them in russia. but you're right, many of them would prefer to make their way through russian territory, which is becoming increasingly vast and make it back to ukrainian held territory, and the russian forces for reasons of propaganda are not willing necessarily to let them do that. >> yeah. very important context there. michael, always great to have
9:12 pm
you on the show. thank you very much for all your great work. appreciate it, michael. >> thaiks for having me. a former u.s. marine is one of the latest victims on the battlefield in ukraine. his family says he was killed fighting alongside ukrainian forces on monday. the 22-year-old was sent to ukraine by a private military contracting company that he worked for. his mother says he went to ukraine because he believed in its cause. she also says her son's remains have not been recovered yet. he leaves behind a wife and a 7 month old baby. we now want to take you to a town in southern ukraine whose residents say russian tanks are positioned just a few kilometers away from their home. they have been testing ukrainian defenders who still control the town. nick walsh was there for you. >> reporter: if russia had any
9:13 pm
surprises left in this war, it is along here. here, the western side is caught in the fast-changing landscape of this week's push. that's the prize over there, the river up past which on the left side bank here, the russians are trying to push, wanting control of both sides of that vital part of ukraine. here, we are told there are a handful of russian tanks just over a kilometer away on its outskirts, pushing, but ultimately kept at baby ukrainian forces that still hold the town. resilience here embodied under the threat of rocket fire. i'm here until victory, she said. it's just her and her mother.
9:14 pm
okay. her mother and her are staying here. her mother says she's not going anywhere, and she's not going to leave her alone. all her windows are blown out, she says. ukrainian forces who don't want their positions filmed are dotted around the town. as to the signs of innocent lives lost here. rockets peeking out from under the water, and this boat in which 14 civilians tried to flee russian occupation on april 7th. four of them died when moscow troops opened fire when it was 70 meters out. yet, still, the desperate keep fleeing. this morning, these women left behind their men to defend their homes. we ran, ran early in the morning.
9:15 pm
they didn't let us out. we're shields for them. they don't let us out, and by foot and buy sickle we go. in the fields, we ran. our soldiers were two kilometers away, and we ran to them. well, they need the russian tanks, she said. they draw seds on everything. as their new unwanted guests demanded food at gun point, they had a glimpse of their mind set. they say they've come to liberate us. they say america is fighting here but using the hands of ukrainians to do it. that's what they say. another claim to be fueled by the violence of the long war with separatists in the east. in general, the donetsk militants say, she said, you have been bombing us for eight years. now we bomb you. across the fields, loathing and
9:16 pm
artillery swallow whole once happy worlds. nick payton walsh, cnn, ukraine. >> incredible bravery as well as defines that we are seeing across this country. i'll be back at the top of the hour. but for now, i'm going to send it back to my colleague michael in atlanta. >> appreciate that. well, the american trevor reed is back in the u.s. after being released by russia in a prisoner swap. he arrived at the air force base in texas early on thursday morning. his mother confirming that he had returned almost three years after being detained in moscow. here, you can see the former american marine with family members and their u.s. congressman. his parents say he'll be taken to a military hospital for monitoring. his mother tweeted it had been a day of joy for their family. she also pleaded for the release

9:22 pm
the u.s. markets reacting to quterly reports from amazon and applin afterhour trading. the in stock affecting the rkets, amazon. after the closing bell, the giant plunged when it reported a nearly $1 million loss. amazon stock plunged more than 10% in afterhours trading. partly blaming -- in a statement, amazon ceo said, quote, the pandemic and subsequent war in ukraine have brought unusual growth and challenges. he added, our teams are squarely focused on improving productivity throughout our fulfillment network. a cn nrk global economic analyst and editor for the financial times. it's good to see you.
9:23 pm
we have seen the market's reaction. what do we like to see when the markets open? just how big of a deal is this? >> well, it is a big deal. you think about amazon as being one of the richest -- certainly one of the strongest companies in america. and this is coming off the back of some wobbles that we've already seen with other earnings reports, other tech companies in particular. so it's going to have an impact. i would not be surprised if this led the market lower for some time, and it's a correction that a lot of us have been expecting. you have seen the war interrupting all kinds of things, supply chain, inflation, consumers start to feel that. anecdotally, i'm hearing and seeing a lot of people saying, anything that's not necessary, i'm not going to spend money on right now. discretionary purposes. netflix streaming, you're seeing
9:24 pm
those numbers go down. electronic gadgets, vacations. so i think you're starting to see a trend here where consumers are worried. they feel the tremors around the world, and they're concerned. >> also, amazon benefitted greatly from the pandemic shutdown as people jumped into online buying. not much else to do. so what then would be the outlook for amazon in the postpandemic environment, especially with those inflation worries, fears even of a recession? >> i think in some ways amazon is kind of a very big canary in a coal mine of the economy. if this company is starting to feel the bite from the war and from inflation and from other troubles. there was some investments that perhaps didn't pan out. but if they're starting to feel the pain, you can bet other
9:25 pm
companies will too. in the very beginning, a lot of tech firms did well because everyone went online. the big got bigger. nobody is immune from a cut in consumer spending from supply chain fiascos and certainly from rising inflation. this is going to bite. and we're feeling it. i think that this could be the beginning of some real jitters in the market for the next -- the rest of the year. >> that was my next question. can you see a correction coming across the whole market? >> i could. i definitely could. in fact, it's something i have been expecting for some time. you can look back in history and draw some parallels with the 70s, even the 30s when you saw a very similar geopolitical issues. a lot of strife, a pandemic leading into a recession, lot of monetary stimulus, but then propped marks up, then you had
9:26 pm
rising wages. we're in the middle of some of these similar dynamics, as i wrote in my past monday column for the financial times. we could be seeing that kind of a correction at some point. one question i have is is that going to derail the u.s. consumer? the u.s. consumer has still, in the midst of pandemic and in the midst of war played this role of the buyer of last report. we've started to see that change a little bit. are we going to see that consumer pull back and say, no, i want to see more cash on hand. >> when it comes to amazon specifically, i mean, the loss of, what was it, 3.8 billion compared to the same period last year, it made 8.1 billion. how could projections to wall street have been so wrong?
9:27 pm
what happens to make it so wrong? >> well, there's a lot in play right now. i have been doing this for 30 year. i can't remember a period when the amount that could change at any given moment in the economy was as much as it is now. it's incredibly volatile, and you know, even a company like this is feeling it. consumer sentiment could turn on a dime. the war is changing in real time. china is still locked down, yet again, because of the pandemic. so there's just a lot influx right now. i think it's really difficult for anyone to predict really on a week by week basis what's going to happen. >> always terrific analysis. great to see you. thank you. >> thank you so much. the u.s. president wants to spend an enormous amount of money for aid to ukraine. ahead, what this proposed

the u.s. president is asking congress to approve more than $30 billion in new aid for ukraine. joe biden admits, his words, the cost of the fight is n cheap. but he says, quote, caving to ssian aggression is going to be more stly. mj lee elains what the package entails. >> reporter: president biden is asking congress to approve $33 billion in supplemental funding for ukraine. here's how that price tag breaks down. some $20 billion in military and
9:33 pm
security assistance. another 8.5 in economic assistance, and another 3 billion in humanitarian assistance. in terms of what this money would translate to, a lot of it would be weapons and equipment that the ukrainians said they need so badly of like artillery, armored vehicles and antiarmor systems. then we're also talking about food, money, and medicine, the day to day things the ukrainian people need as they try to survive this war. this is money that should last ukrainians around five months. just another stark reminder both this price tag as well as the five-month time frame that u.s. officials are currently planning for this conflict to be a long-term conflict. >> now, if approved by congress, this huge aid package won't just be helping ukraine. it's also going to mean lucrative new deals for u.s.
9:34 pm
defense con tack tors. we look at who's going to be getting rich. >> reporter: as russian troops poured across ukraine's border, kicking off the russian invasion in late february, something else was happening at the same time in new york. the stock prices of the biggest u.s. weapons manufacturers spiked. many eventually climbing to their highest point in year. >> war is good business for parts of the economy. historically. it doesn't mean the contractors want it. i know a lot of people in these companies, and they're heart broken, but yes, war is good business for certain parts of the economy. >> the latest shipments include systems like scores of howitzers that haven't been sent before. hundreds of armored personnel carriers joining the now brutally effective javelins and stingers on ukraine's
9:35 pm
battlefields. >> sometimes we will speak softly and carry a large javelin because we're sending a lot of those as well. >> javelins are made in part by eighth on. they do plan to benefit from u.s. stocks. >> we don't apologize for making these systems, making these weapons. the fact is they are incredibly effective in deterring and dealing with the threat the ukrainians are seeing today. eventually, we'll have to replenish it. >> eighth on, along with seven other weapons companies, including bow wing -- met earlier this month in a classified meeting about not just supplying ukraine but replenishing u.s. and allied inventories. >> i'm not going to deny that these kind of conflicts can help certain companies. it's the reality of situation, but we should be glad we have this industrial base that's
9:36 pm
capable of producing this stuff on such short notice with such high quality. >> the biden administration alone has contributed $3.5 billion in aid to ukraine in the two months of russia's war compared to the pentagon's 2023 budget of weapons, that's just 1.2%. pentagon says the contractors could use the conflict the justify bigger budgets. >> my concern is when those weapons are replenished, will it be at a reasonable cost and also will there be ancillary changes in our military spending that don't really relate to ukraine but are used because of the fear related to the russian invasion to spend on things that really don't have to deal with the defense of europe. >> there are also concerns about wr the billions of dollars of weapons are going. once they cross the border into
9:37 pm
ukraine, officials say the u.s. has no way to track the weapons, nor, of course, where they end up in the long run. >> once they get in ukrainian hands, it's up to them to decide what unit gets it, when, if it's stored at all or temporarily. that's up to the ukrainians to decide, not the united states. >> if n the $33 billion that biden requested, more than 4 billion would be for ukraine to buy more weapons. that's where wr the new business for these weapons companies will come from, and there will be more. so a major concern mow is making sure weapons companies don't take advantage of this to raise prices. >> a new report from the pentagon says u.s. forces left the behind $7 billion in military equipment after pulling out of afghanistan last year. they abandoned equipment of more
9:38 pm
than 300,000 weapons and 78 aircraft. although the u.s. defense department says the aircraft had been rendered inoperable. much of the equipment left behind neetds specialized maintenance previously supplied by u.s. contractors. the u.s. gave $18 billion of equipment to the afghan forces from 2005 to 2021 before the taliban takeover. covid cases in china are rising, and safety regulations in some places getting tougher. we'll have a look at what it looks like traveling to and from the country comingng up.
