10:01 pm
spread. welcome to the show, everyone. it is 8:00 a.m. here in ukraine. we'll begin with a glimmer of hope for people trapped in the ukrainian city of mariupol after weeks under siege by russian forces and several failed evacuation attempts. a handful of civilians managed to leave on saturday. ukrainian commander at the steel plant, the last bastion of ukraine's defense of mariupol, says 20 women as well as children got out after a cease-fire r. but that is really a tiny fraction of the hundreds still trapped inside the plant and the thousands, of course, believed to be sheltering in other parts of the city, 100,000 or so. meanwhile, missile strikes hammered southern as well as eastern ukraine on saturday. in the southern port city of od odesa, you can see on your map, witnesses reported hearing several explosions.
10:02 pm
ukraine's military also confirmed that the runway at odesa's airport had been destroyed. in his nightly address, ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy vowed to rebuild, have a listen. >> translator: the runway of the odesa airport was destroyed. we will, of course, rebuild it. but odesa will never forget such a russian attitude towards it. >> we also have new video from the russian defense ministry confirming what ukraine's military really has been saying for almost a week that russia is using submarines in the black sea to launch missile attacks on ukrainian targets. cnn's matt rivers has a closer look at efforts to get civilians out of mariupol and the growing concerns about ukrainian soldiers who could be left behind, of course. >> reporter: out of mariupol today, the first bit of good news in terms of evacuations that we've had in some time now,
10:03 pm
with word coming from a ukrainian commander inside the steel plant complex that some civilians have managed to be evacuated. that complex the last remaining pocket of ukrainian resistance in a city that russia has otherwise completely controlled. inside that complex, hundreds of civilians alongside ukrainian fighters. this commander saying about 20 people managed to be evacuated during a cease-fire agreed to between russia and the ukrainian side with the red cross, according to this commander, involved. the plan, according to that commander, get those civilians to the city of zapuresha, currently in ukrainian hands. the fate of those civilians cnn cannot independently verify at this time. we can say conditions inside this complex are horrific and the people in there desperately need to be evacuated with a tweet coming from ukraine's official parliament account earlier on saturday saying, quote, powerful and deadly
10:04 pm
epidemics could soon break out in the city due to the lack of centralized water supply and sanitation, the decomposition of thousands of corpses under the rubble, and a catastrophic shortage of water and food. so a horrific situation that people desperately need to escape from. meanwhile, i did manage to have a conversation with a commander in the azov regiment which is one of the units that has been fighting for weeks and months in mariupol. he was injured during the fighting in that city. he managed to get smuggled out to get treatment. but he told us from the treatment facility that he is at right now that the president of ukraine, volodymyr zelenskyy, should not forget about the soldiers if these civilians can get evacuated, he should try and do the same for the military. >> it's not only civilian that's the president's responsibility, say. the president's responsibility as well to save their military. no man stays behind. it's his responsibility to do as well. i would say, we need third
10:05 pm
country, third side, need to be involved as a guarantee with the international nongovernment organizations or government organizations who will provide guarantee for a safe evacuation for civilians or military. >> i asked that commander several times, we've asked people inside the steel plant complex, why don't the soldiers just surrender to the russians? the answer is the same every time, these soldiers who are fighting in that complex do not believe that they can safely surrender to the russians. in fact, many believe that they would be summarily executed. they've told me that personally. they think they would be killed by the russian forces if they were, in fact, to surrender. that's why they're calling on this third party country to get involved with these evacuations to guarantee their safety. but as far as we can tell, at least publicly no substantial progress made on that front as of yet. matt rivers, cnn, kyiv. >> important context from matt rivers on the situation in
10:06 pm
mariupol. meantime, russian missiles have again struck ukraine's third most popular city. residents of the southern port city of odesa on the black sea fear it's about to welcome a primary target of the invaders. our nick payton walsh has the latest for you. >> reporter: strikes on odessa have been intermittent since the war began, targeting often military structure. the one we've just seen, no exception, hitting the airport. ar parentally its runway. it's unclear where they originated from. there have been images of russia putting submarines and launching missiles in the black sea. we've seen russian ships off the coast, one key, one hit and destroyed recently. a lot of russian activity to try and pressure odesa. the brought issue, many people in that russian-speaking city of over a million will be asking, this is the prelude to some wider assault on that city? or lake we've seen the past weeks a bid to try to pressure and it keep ukrainian military officials guessing as to what
10:07 pm
russia's goal along that black sea coast actually is? they did say a couple of weeks ago the move towards the black sea coast would be part of a wider bid to control that area. but they've been trying that for months and they've failed. they failed to get past the first city of mikalaev toward the last months. is it west toward odesa like advertised? or is that a distraction? are they coming for here, the economic hub that's the hometown of the president of volodymyr zelenskyy of ukraine? or headed east to join up with the offensive russia has been pushing hard there as well? you are hearing air raid sirens behind me. not uncommon, no explosions tonight. but a broader sense of concern here in this quiet but well-populated central city that something is brewing to their south. we're seeing villages change
10:08 pm
hands fast, ukraine pushback at times too. certainly concerns that russia's goals are in this direction. >> that's nick payton walsh. joining me from kyiv is david guttenfeld, working on assignment from the new york time records a very good morning to you. let me start with what you've been seeing. you've been focusing on kyiv as well as the surrounding areas, of course. the battle for kyiv was, of course, won a few weeks ago. what have you been able to document in terms of the aftermath? >> yeah, really my task has been here in the kyiv region where we've had just recently, since the pushback of the russians, an opportunity to go into these communities all across the region, in the suburbs of kyiv, and really witness the
10:09 pm
astonishing scale of the destruction and up close, personal look at the impact on people's lives, people who are returning, and those who have lost loved ones and those who have survived up until now. and just really been trying to show that scale and that sort of deep dive of the struggle that's going on here. and to maybe humanize and explain something that's i think, you know, a war that's really incomprehensible to most of us, including myself. >> yeah, including myself, it's fair to say, to many of our viewers. i want to share some of the work you've used in the photos. irpin, a photo you shared of a cemetery in irpin. it's a sprawling sea of graves. you can see four freshly dug ones. tell me about what you saw in
10:10 pm
this town just outside of kyiv? >> this is the civilian side of the cemetery in irpin, a northern suburb of kyiv. only the firsthandful of rows are the graves that hold those who have died since the war began in late february. but as you said, the focus of this picture really is these four freshly dug graves, which i know were filled in funerals the next morning and the following day. and so we've reported that there's 900 or more people, civilians, have been found in the communities that the russians occupied before their purchaseback from this area. so i think that this photograph really is kind of looking at these four graves, it feels haunting to me and it's sort of emblematic of the scale of destruction and loss that's happened here.
10:11 pm
>> and of course, you are -- this is just in irpin, but you are now in kyiv. we saw, i think on thursday, a missile attack in central kyiv when u.n. secretary-general was visiting. i think it's important to say that this happened, of course, after weeks of relative calm in the city. given a sense of what you saw and what you heard from residents that day, as we look at one of your photos, david? >> yeah, as you said, i've been going around photographing what i felt like was just very surprising resilience of people rebuilding. rebuilding while the country is still very much at war. especially in the east. but kyiv is very much still in the -- a target. and that was -- that played out two nights ago. i rushed down to the scene, we heard the two explosions and
10:12 pm
could see the smoke on the horizon from where i'm staying. and when i arrived i just saw the immediate response by ukrainian military and paramedics, police. and this very dramatic scene of buildings on fire, a factory that was struck. but also an apartment building that was adjacent to it which was hit. absolutely devastating. the thing that was most surprising to me or the thing that i noticed was family meant standing at the top of the street, unable to go down. they were on their phones, crying, they looked terrorized. they were trying to find out the fate of their relatives, including a woman who said she heard from a neighbor that her grandmother had been wounded. >> has this attack that we saw in kyiv, has that shattered the kind of sense of security, relative sense of security, david? >> i feel like people are just -- there's a fear, of
10:13 pm
course. and this part of the country has been -- people have endured atrocities that we can't imagine. and yet there's this kind of sense of pride as well. resilience and tenacity. people are going forward. going back into their homes. trying to rebuild. this is all happening with a very, very uncertain near-future across the country, even here in kyiv. >> their defiance is truly inspirational, i think, something that you have been able to capture. but there's, among so much destruction, something that really stuck out to me in one of your photos is love. and i want to show you, this photo, there's a couple. a beautiful photo of them together. just embracing. tell me their story, david. >> i was just walking in central kyiv. i noticed this couple embracing
10:14 pm
next to the security sandbagged entrance of an underpass. and i stopped and crouched and very discreetly made this candid photo of them embracing. i had the chance to speak to them afterwards, and they told me their story. this is maxim. he's a soldier. and his girlfriend yana. they hadn't seen each other since the end of february when maxim was sent off to fight as a soldier. this was the first day that they'd been reunited. and they were holding one another. it was a very sweet, moving moment to me. but it was also a very sbiter sweet -- what i found out is he was also preparing to leave to go back to the front that day. and so this was just a very brief moment. when i got home and i looked at the picture, i blew it up and i could see their faces. it was really moving to me
10:15 pm
because of their youth and their obvious love for one another and this really heartbreaking look on their faces. >> yeah, you really captured that very brief moment, that embrace between them. and our viewers, as we look at your photos, our viewers no doubt will be thinking, why does he do it? why do you put yourself in this situation? i know you've covered other wars, david. why do you do this? what does this mean to you? >> i have been a news photographer my whole career and have been ite to many historic events. i was home in the united states, i was watching in the beginning. if i'm honest, i felt -- i felt ashamed to not be here, to try to contribute something meaningful to this.
10:16 pm
because it's really -- the whole world has focused on what's happening here in ukraine. and i feel that we all need to come and try to contribute something to the understanding of this. >> david gutenfeld, thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us. thanks for the incredible work, beautiful images. follow david on instagram, as i do, beautiful images. stay safe, appreciate it, thank you. when we come back, more deadly violence in the middle east. clashes we've seen between israeli forces and palestinians are breaking out as two separate shootings kill people on both sides of the conflict. a bit later, shanghai in lockdown. and one of china's biggest theme parks closes due to covid.

slightly over the last two days. at least 27 chinese cities are under full or partial lack down, affecting some 180 million residents. cnn correspondent selena wang recently moved from tokyo to beijing. she chronicled her travel and subsequent quarantine in china as she experienced the nation's strict zero covid policy firsthand. >> reporter: traveling into china is like entering a fortress. the country has been virtually sealed off since the start of the pandemic, guarded by strict border controls and the world's harshest quarantine. my journey to get in start with three pcr tests in tokyo san days out from my flight, first daily covid test. i'm preparing for 21 days in quarantine. within 48 hours of boarding, china requires pcr tests at two different government-approved
10:22 pm
clinics. this is possibly the most paperwork i've ever needed to board an airplane. i say good-bye to tokyo, my home for the past 1 1/2 years. checking in at the airport, relatively smooth. still checking my documents. finally have my boarding pass. i'm at the gate, i'm going to china. most people on my flight are chinese citizens. foreigners can only enter under very limited conditions. it's even harder for american journalists because of u.s./china tensions. all the flight attendants in full protective gear. getting ready for takeoff, here we go. nights into china, especially beijing, are extremely limited. even though i'll be based in the capital, first i'm flying to hunan province. after landing, another covid test. a bus eventually takes us to the quarantine location. no one can choose where they'll be locked in for the next 21 days. hours later we arrive. i count myself lucky.
10:23 pm
it's a hot spring resort converted into a quarantine site. it's my first time here, but i'll have to enjoy the view from the window. i can't step out onto the balcony or open my door, except for health checkups and food pickup. two temperature checks a day. regular covid tests. sometimes even twice a day. food delivery isn't allowed, but breakfast, lunch, and dinner are part of the quarantine fees. these restrictions are all part of china's zero covid policy. across china, tens of millions are sealed inside their homes. since mid-december, china's average new daily case count has surged from double-digits to more than 20,000. any positive case and close contact has to go to government quarantine. entire metropolises brought to a standstill. most of shanghai's 25 million residents have been locked in for weeks. many struggling to get enough food and medical care. in year three of the pandemic,

most of the world is learning to live with covid. but in china, no case is tolerated no matter the emotional and economic cost. selena wang, cnn, china. israeli forces have arrested two palestinians suspected of killing an israeli guard late friday night. that makes four palestinians detained in connection with the attack. the militant group al asqa brigades claimed responsibility. the shooting comes amid rising violence in the region. the palestinian ministry of health said saturday israeli forces shot and killed a palestinian man in the west bank. the israeli military says it was conducting counterterrorism activity when a number of people threw molotov cocktails at the soldiers. hundreds attended the palestinian man's funeral. clashes broke out after the funeral. the palestinian red crescent says at least three people suffered moderate injuries. u.s. marine veteran trevor

this is cnn breaking news. >> welcome back, i'm isa soares live in lviv, ukraine. let me bring you up to date. there is some hope on the horizon for hundreds of people believed to be trapped in the besieged steel plant in mariupol, you can see there. a ukrainian commander says 20 civilians were evacuated on sunday. he's hoping evacuations will continue and include not only civilians but also wounded ukrainian troops, about 600 or so wounded. in the south, president zelenskyy is pledging to rebuild a destroyed airport runway in the city of odesa. he says the airport was struck by russian missiles on saturday. witnesses reported seeing military planes in the sky and hearing multiple explosions in the area. >> a russian military unit accused of atrocities in the

10:32 pm
>> reporter: meanwhile, russia released this footage of a ballistic missile launch. as it concentrates its offensive on the east of ukraine. "they have enough artillery and aircraft to destroy the entire donbas," says ukraine's president, "just as they destroyed mariupol." the city now a russian concentration camp, he said, in the middle of ruins. this is what he's talking about. a seaside city now apocalyptic. >> every day, people are dying. every day, they have less food, water, medicine. >> reporter: the wives of ukrainian troops trapped there are calling for international help to evacuate both civilians and soldiers.
10:33 pm
>> mariupol have to have a chance. not only civilians. we come here to rescue alive soldiers too. because -- sorry. >> reporter: yulia, like so many ukrainians, wants the world to listen and take action. the number of ukrainians who have fled their country because of the war continues to grow. it now stands at more than 5.4 million people. that is according to a u.n. estimate. that is roughly the same as the entire populations of slovakia or norway. the u.n. also says far more ukrainians are stranded near the battle lines because of security and concerns, as well as damages as we have been reporting to roads and bridges. meanwhile, actress angelina jolie is special enjvoy for the

10:39 pm
families there who are being forced out of their homes. >> less and less and less. >> reporter: mora and daughter carson have 30 days to find a new home. >> how many properties do you think you've explored? >> thousands. thousands. >> reporter: for three years, she's been paying $2,100 a month for this three bedroom in palm beach gardens, florida. last month she got a letter from her landlord. >> due to unforeseen circumstances -- >> reporter: her new represent, $3,200 a month. an attorney for her landlord tells cnn, rising property taxes and mortgage rates are to blame. >> i freaked out. we can't afford. can't do it. >> reporter: there's a housing affordability crisis. home prices are sky high, forcing more americans into a competitive rental market. she's a single mom and disabled veteran, relying on rental assistance from housing and urban development, hud. she already had fewer options,
10:40 pm
but now landlords looking to capitalize on rising rents are less willing to accept the strict guidelines of her rental voucher. how critical is the hud voucher to your existence? >> that is our existence. without it, we would be homeless. >> reporter: rents are rising across the country. up a record nearly 20% on average in two years. double that in cities like memphis, tampa, and riverside, california. but the miami-palm beach area tops them all at 58%, nearly three times the national average. >> when there's a hurricane, it's illegal for gas stations to jack up the prices. why is there not a cap in the state of florida? why am i looking at a 43% increase? >> reporter: in fact, it's illegal in florida to impose rent controls. sarah espinoza is facing a 106%

>> reporter: vanessa yo, cnn, miami, florida. cleanup in kansas after at least seven tornados swept through the state friday night. on saturday, crews worked to get power back up in the area. city officials say several people had minor injuries but no deaths were reported. dozens of homes were hit and the extent of the damage is still being assessed. experts warn a new storm threat is evolving which could impact the state again. cnn meteorologist derek van dam joins me now. so what's the latest on this storm? >> i've been replaying that video from andover, kansas, looking at that tornado, incredible, the damage there. national weather service is on the ground, they've had boots on the ground the past 12 hours to indicate how strong that tornado was. they've determined ef-3, enhanced fujita 3, the rating system we have for the strength of the winds. that is a 218 to 265
10:43 pm
kilometer-per-hour wind speed clocked with this incredible tornado that moved through the area. that's 158 to 206 miles per hour. it caused severe damage. we saw over 1,000 structures damaged from just that one tornado alone late friday evening. and you fast forward to saturday, we had more tornados. in fact, there was a tornado confirmed by radar in the western suburbs of chicago. all in all on saturday, quieter but six tornado reports. 18 reports of wind damage. 35 reports of hail. as you saw, as mentioned, we have another round of severe weather today. first things first, what's happening right now. severe thunderstorms associated with this cold front, dying down. we lose the daytime heating from the sunshine, we no longer have that energy necessary to sustain supercells like we see during the peak heating hours of the day. nonetheless, a few thunderstorms firing off across northern sections of louisiana. currently only two severe thunderstorm warnings in effect for that area and in pretty
10:44 pm
rural portions of northern louisiana. today, later on sunday, things are going to fire up across the nation's midsection. this time the texas panhandle into the oklahoma panhandle, that's the area we're concerned about. this is the overnight period. then we'll see these storms advance east through the course of the day and fire off a new round of storms with this low pressure system that's going to eject just east of the colorado rockies. then as we go into monday to start off the workweek, the areas hit hardest by the tornado, andover, kansas. you have yet another chance of severe weather again. so this is a multi-day severe weather setup. you can see sunday's forecast. amarillo to lubbock to midland, texas, keep an eye to the sky. we have a moderate risk of severe storms. then the moderate risk into kansas and oklahoma city on monday to start off the week. we're used to tornados and strong storms, but no one can prepare themselves for the damage and destruction that comes with an ef-3 tornado like we saw in kansas.

millions of people in the southwestern u.s. are bracing for water shortages as reservoirs continue to dry up. the climate change-induced water crisis is now also triggering a potential energy crisis. cnn's camila bernal has details. >> reporter: evidence of this mega drought is becoming easier to see, and in particular in lake mead which provides drinking water for more than 25 million people. if you look at these images you're going to see that original valve put in in 1971, it sits above the water. officials realized this was going to be a problem in 2015. they started building a new valve that goes deeper into lake mead. that's being used right now. it went into operation this week. it appears to be running smoothly. people are still getting their drinking water. it goes to show how big of a problem this is. because water levels are just
10:46 pm
