11:00 pm
>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. hello and a very warm welcome to our viewers joining us in the united states and right around the world. i'm isa soares live in ukraine. ahead on "cnn newsroom," a small but significant sign of progress. the successful evacuation in mariupol for the very lucky, very few. our talk with a ukrainian lawmaker about whether there will be more. >> reporter: and i'm allison kosik in new york following our other top stories. deadly attacks on mosques in afghanistan during the first
11:01 pm
ramadan since the taliban took control. that report ahead. welcome to the show, everyone. it's 9:00 a.m. here in ukraine, and a glimmer of hope is emerging for people trapped in the port city of mariupol. after weeks under siege and numerous failed evacuation attempts around 20 civilians managed to leave on saturday. but that, of course, is just a tiny fraction of the thousands still stuck in the city. and conditions are only growing more desperate. ukraine's president says the eyes of the world are watching. have a listen. >> translator: all the leaders of the free world know what russia has done to mariupol, and russia will not go unpunished for this. >> cnn's scott mcclain has a closer look now at the devastation in mariupol and what comes next for the civilians as
11:02 pm
well as the soldiers still trapped there. >> reporter: from a distance smoke rises above mariupol's sprawling steel plant, but only from above is the true scale of the damage apparent. new satellite images show nearly every building on the sprawling industrial site has been damaged. some roofs have caved, some entire buildings are a pile of rubble. what cannot be seen from above is the damage from days of russian bombing in the network of tunnels and bunkers below the surface. >> translator: all last night barrel artillery worked on the tower of the plant which caused new obstructions and blockages. as of now the special rescue operation is being carried out by the regiment. we get civilians out of the rubble with ropes. it's the elderly, women and children. we thoep that this process will continue and we'll be able to evacuate all the civilians. >> reporter: the ukrainian assov
11:03 pm
regiment deputy commander now says about 20 women and children rescued under that rubble have also been taken out of the plant made possible by a cease-fire the commander says and an evacuation convoy which arrived in the city in the early evening. russian media reported there were 25 civilians evacuated including six kids. after back-to-back meetings in moskow and kyiv by the u.n. secretary-general the united nations stepped up negotiations to evacuate the civilians trapped under the steel plant. >> translator: we are doing everything to ensure the evacuation mission from mariupol is carried out. >> reporter: by saturday afternoon the mariupol mayor's office reported the russians were allowing civilians to leave neighborhoods east of the river and cross to the west side to potentially meet up on an evacuation corridor on the mall at the edge of the city.
11:04 pm
their journey in a wasteland of obliterated housing in the weeks around the steel plant. it's not clear how many people from under the plant were able to escape the desperate conditions. the plant ceo says the underground bunkers were stocked with enough food or water to last two or three weeks. it's now been two months. >> it's a humanitarian disaster there. the city is being destroyed. basically a beautiful, thriving city was turned into a concentration camp by the russians in less than two months. you can say it's genocide which is happening there. >> reporter: even with some civilians getting out, the fighters are not, even the hundreds that ukraine says are injured. >> translator: we asked to guarantee the opportunity to leave not only for civilians but also for our wounded servicemen who need medical care. >> reporter: but the fate of those wounded now ultimately lies with russia. scott mcclain, cnn, lviv,
11:05 pm
ukraine. >> well, in kyiv protesters are calling on international leaders to step in and help evacuate civilians and soldiers alike from mariupol as you heard there in that report from scott mcclain. a group of women gathered in the capital on saturday holding signs and draped there in the ukrainian flag. and the danger for those stuck in mariupol is growing. on saturday ukraine's parliament warned deadly epidemics could soon break out in the city due the lack of water and sanitation. and thousands of corpses now decomposing under the rubble. one official tells me he could expect as many as 20,000 people dead just in the city of mariupol. meanwhile missile strikes have hammered southern and eastern ukraine on saturday. in the southern port city of odesa witnesses reported hearing several explosions. ukraine's military also confirmed the runway at odesa's airport has been destroyed. in his nightly address ukrainian
11:06 pm
president volodymyr zelenskyy vowed to restore the damaged runway but he said no amount will make ukraine forget the destruction caused by russia. ukraine's president says nearly 70% now have full-fledged local self-government again. slotd mere phrulen skae says they're doing everything to return some normalcy really to the deoccupied areas. he adds humanitarian work is under way in over 90% of the liberated towns. authorities are also actively demining the freed territories. mr. zelenskyy has also been t tallying up his military successes. the president ran down the number of tanks as well as aircraft his country has destroyed. he says russia has lost so many assets on the battlefield
11:07 pm
they're having to change their victory parade plans. have a listen. >> translator: our defenders have already destroyed more than 1,000 russian tanks, almost 200 russian aircraft, almost 2,500 armored vehicles. of course the occupiers still have equipment in stock, yes they still have missiles to strike at our territory, but this war has already weaken said russia so much they have to plan even fewer military equipment for the parade in moskow. >> of course cnn cannot independently verify those russian losses there. well, elements of normal life are returning to some key suburbs that have seen some of the worst death as well as destruction during this war the international red cross says it has restored water service in four towns near the capital. tay say they laid 70 kilometers of pipes over the past 18 days, and as a result water uvs is up and running again for some 200,000 people including in the
11:08 pm
town of irpin which has been heavily damaged. you can see there on your screen. the red cross says it went ahead with the project despite the risk of workers running into leftover mines during the construction. that of course is a huge concern at the moment. the number of ukrainians who fled the country because of the war continues to grow and now stands at more than 4.5 million people, and that is according to a u.n. estimate. that is roughly just to put in context for you the same as the entire populations of slovakia or norway. the u.n. also says far more ukrainians are also stranded near battle lines because of security concerns and the damage we've been reporting, damage to roads and bridges and to infrastructure. joining me now is a member of the ukrainian parliament. very good morning to you. thanks for taking the time to speak with us. let me start where we started the show this hour is that break through we've seen in mariupol,
11:09 pm
20 civilians being evacuated. of course we know there are a thousand or so inside a steel plant. do you know whether there will be further attempts to evacuate the rest today? >> i'm very, very pessimistic about the location from mariupol -- mariupol is the golden nugget in russian propaganda. they've said mariupol is a nazi nest, and they have decided to destroy this nazi nest. and all the time they said we're opening military corridor, we're opening green corridors. all this time is lie. and after of course the general secretary of united nation came to russia and then came to ukraine and the main reason was in mariupol, and the situation
11:10 pm
was in mariupol -- yes, they agreed. but i'm really pessimistic and our army. >> and of course we're talking about what we heard inside the steel plant where a ukrainian commander tells us 20 civilians have been evacuated. so you're saying that you are pessimistic of further evacuations for the remainder of the civilians inside that steel plant. is that correct? do you know whether they're going to try again today? >> we're trying day by day. we're trying to locate people. we're trying to have this deal with russians and every day -- every day. and it doesn't work. they don't want. >> and what does that mean? we've talked about the civilians. and, you know, do you have details of what this deal
11:11 pm
entails? do we know what will happen to the soldiers including the wounded soldiers inare they even part of this evacuation plan, dmitry? >> of course we want to evacuate our wounded soldiers and of course we want to evacuate all the civilians. you have to understand most of the civilians are families of ukrainian soldiers. and after bucha we know what will happen to them if they will be captured. these women, these children they will be raped, and they will be killed. so of course we're trying to locate all of them. but as for now without success. >> yeah, but we don't know whether the soldiers are part of the evacuation plan. is that correct? >> from our side, of course we're trying troolocate soldiers, wounded soldiers and all the civilians. >> if they are evacuated or if they surrender, this basically
11:12 pm
gives in many ways a win to president putin taking mariupol. what would that mean you think for this city that's so beloved by many that i've spoken to? >> i'm not sure that will be victory for putin because he already announced this victory. he already announced that they captured mariupol. so doesn't look like he can have this victory twice. so for us it will be really very, very hard situation because all that ukrainian army, all our guys are doing there is far beyond heroic. and for us of course they're a symbol of resistance. and all of us we hope they can stay there with your help, with your weapons we can kick out russian troops out of mariupol
11:13 pm
and save our guys. >> let me ask you about what's happening in odesa. i mean we saw missile strikes last night hitting the airport. of course this is the third biggest city in ukraine and a very strategic port. do you fear that russia has its eyes on odesa next? is this a prelude to a wider assault you think? >> we don't see enough army troops and enough marines to make a d-day from russia. all of ukraine of course not only odesa you'll remember we had a strike in kyiv several days ago. and so it will continue. of course intensity for rocket strikes is much lower now because they just like more than half of their rockets is already
11:14 pm
used. but we're waiting for -- we're waiting for more and more rocket strikes. >> you are waiting for more, so the expectation is that more is coming. thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us. do stay safe. appreciate it. and i'll have much more in ukraine in about 20 minutes or so. for now i'll send it back to allison kosik. deadly attacks during the holy month of ramadan are raising new questions and concerns about security in afghanistan. and shanghai in lock down as one of china's biggest theme parks closes due to covid.

israeli forces have arrested two pal stiestinians expected o killing an israeli guard late friday night. that makes at least four pal stip stinnian arrested in connection with the attacks. the shooting comes amid rising violence in the region. the palestinian ministry of health says saturday israeli forces shot and killed a palestinian man in the west bank. it says it was conducting counter terrorism activity when a number of people threw mall tv cocktails.
11:19 pm
the red crescent says at least three people suffered moderate injuries. police in afghanistan say an explosion in a kabul residential area kill one person and wounded three others on saturday. the incident highlights the growing security concerns in the afghan capital where a day earlier an explosion at a mosque killed at least ten and wounded dozens more. cnn's arawa damon reports a waive of deadly attacks in recent weeks has people increasingly worried. >> reporter: at this packed marketplace in kabul shoppers wander through the stalls of dried snacks, fruits and sweets. they're preparing for the holiday. but despite the bustling seen the anticipation, there is an inescapable sense of caution, unease. this is a crowded public space. and in afghanistan that means potential danger. >> translator: the security situation is still not good.
11:20 pm
there is some security, but the kind of security that people were expecting is still not there. >> reporter: this was the first ramadan in afghanistan since the taliban regained control of the country last summer. and even though the taliban said they would bring security to the country and protect its often targeted minorities like shia communities, a series of brutal attacks have rattled several afghan cities in recent weeks. mosques have been targeted especially during friday prayers. on friday a blast ripped through a mosque in kabul. witnesses say there were so many wounded it took hours to transport the victims to hospitals. there was a similar attack the previous week. at a mosque in the province in the north of the country killing at least 30 people. the fear so pervasive worshippers say it's never far from their minds.
11:21 pm
>> translator: i was very much preoccupied with thoughts or fear. i was thinking a suicide attack will happen at any moment now or the mosque will be attacked. not only me but every afghan has this fear in his heart. >> reporter: the taliban condemned the attack on the two mosques and also targeted recently a school and learning facility in a shia neighborhood in kabul where at least six people died nearly two weeks ago. the isis affiliate in afghanistan which often targets shias and the taliban has claimed responsibility for several attacks during the ramadan period. >> translator: how long will such incidents continue? afghanistan's situation is so bad. we have no secure place to live. >> reporter: many are questioning if the taliban government can actually live up to its promises to bring stunt to the country. and so as afghans celebrate this year that sense of apprehension they've lived with for so long, it just continues.
11:22 pm
arawa damon, cnn. universal studios beijing will be closed beginning today because of the covid-19 outbreak. the theme park did not say when it may reopen. and after several weeks in lock down shanghai reported nearly 7,900 new covid cases on saturday and 38 deaths. those numbers are from the shanghai municipal health commission, which reports the number of new local cases and deaths both declined slightly over the last two days. shanghai is the? gen of china's $18 trillion economy. and the city's strict covid lock down could come at a heavy cost. cnn's christie lustout explains. >> reporter: both china's biggest and affluent city and the streets have been empty for weeks. shanghai is battling its worst ever covid-19 outbreak determined to crush it with its zero covid policy.
11:23 pm
it comes at a steep cost to its economy and has implications for the world. >> we're forecasting that the lock doin in shanghai will rock china's economy. shanghai is an economic powerhouse for china. it holds one of two stock exchanges. shanghai's port accounts for something like 3% of global car fare through put at any given time. >> reporter: shanghai is home to the world's busiest container port. it remains operational but according to logistics platform project 44 an april 18th some trucks had been diverted away. waiting for 12 days before they're picked up and delivered compared to just four days in late march. shanghai is also a major abeiation hub, but the outbreak has forced the suspension of many flights causing air fright rates to skyrocket. all of this is putting more pressure on global supply chains. >> this is having a supply shock. a lot of these shipments now
11:24 pm
can't leave the ports, can't leave the airport in shanghai. and these are goods which are ultimately going to europe and the u.s. it's going to push prices up. we're going to see more inflationary pressure. >> reporter: the zero covid strategy has also forced many factories in shanghai to suspend operations. the apple supplier has suspended production at its shanghai plant. and volkswagen and tesla factories have been shut for weeks. and tesla has resumed in shanghai but the company warned it too is not immune from supply chain problems. >> authorities in shanghai are trying to get essential production plants open under what they call a closed loop system. that means their staff actually sleep on the premises, on the factory floors, eat there, don't leave them, don't go home. but the problem is there's a lot of staff who don't want to do
11:25 pm
that, and there's a shortage of parts to get these factories reopened. so it's going to be a global problem. >> reporter: analyst warns the economic pain caused by the zero covid strategy could spiral out of control. saying this, quote, implementing this strategy in an excessive manner by itself could lead to disruption on the supply chain, mass unemployment and then could translate into social, political instability. exactly what the zero covid strategy wants to avoid, unquote. and yet shanghai's weeks long lock down still has no end in sight. the bottom line from china watchers to the world, brace yourself for the fall out. >> i'm allison kosik. for our international viewers quest world wonders is up next. for those in north america our coverage continues aftfter a sht break. stay with us. ♪

>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. welcome back, everyone. i'm isa soares coming to you live from lviv, ukraine. i want to bring you up-to-date with the latest developments in ukraine prch there is some hope for hundreds of people believed to still be trapped at the steel plant in mariupol. the ukrainian commander says 20 civilians were evacuated on saturday, and he says he's
11:30 pm
hoping evacuations will continue and include not only civilians but also wounded ukrainian troops which is what we heard in the last 15, 20 minutes. in the south president zelenskyy is plemgalling to rebuild the destroyed airport runway in the port city of odesa. he says the airport was struck by russian missiles. witnesses reported seeing military planes in the sky and hearing multiple explosions in the area. and this video really apparently confirms what ukraine has been saying for almost a week now, that russia is using submarines in some of its missile strikes. moskow released this video saying it shows a cruise missile launched at a ukrainian military target. but kyiv says the strikes also hit civilian infrastructure. it's not clear when of course this video was taken. regardless of how the civilian evacuations in mariupol play out one question is what will happen
11:31 pm
to the ukrainian troops who say they'll fight to the bitter end? we know about 600 or so or injured from the last time we heard from the people inside that steel plant. earlier i spoke about that with a military expert who slammed what russia is doing in mariupol. have a listen. >> make no mistake if russians wanted those civilians out, they would make the order and get every single civilian out. by the way, the wounded shoulders, those are considered non-combatant in an armed conflict. they're not fighters and need to get out as well. >> in the meantime, john, what we have been seeing in the batfield is russia really pressing on with its offensive in the east and intensifying -- i think it's important to point out intensifying that. they are somewhat a bit --
11:32 pm
they're more organized all of a sudden. >> yeah, i mean they had the advantage of basically having a supply line but they're still making a lot of the same mistakes, isa. they've amassed some forces in their heavy use of artillery. we see that and that's why this is a dangerous phase. and some of these fights and really this is a war over logistical lines right now. they need certain road intersections, railway heads and cities do to this encirclement of the donbas they want to do. it's a real dangerous phase but you also see you rainians counter attacking in kharkiv and other locations that's more promising than a couple of spots. this is a day by day fight. >> yeah, and we have seen like you say ukraine pushing back. we've seen the push and pull of battle. on the question of, you know, what russia -- kind of what they're suffering, according to president zelenskyy in his overnight address, i've got it
11:33 pm
here just in front of me, he said our defenders have already destroyed more than 1,000 russian tanks, almost 200 russian aircraft, almost 2,500 armored fighting vehicles. they still plenty of stock and supply lines are still coming in, and we are seeing from the russian side those attacks on the ply lines, john, here in ukraine. and that is critical for the ukrainians. >> yeah, absolutely. we've seen the quality of stuff they put into ukraine now. unlike the ukrainians getting some of the world's best equipment, russia even if it resupplies and they can get it, it's not good stuff. >> yeah. and i suspect -- i mean with the western artillery we've got coming in and starts making its way here, john, this battle will be very much kind of long-range
11:34 pm
weapons and will force i suspect and you can correct me here, force them to ultimately grow more nimble. >> yeah, absolutely. it'll break them up. we're already seeing long-range attacks today that supposedly took out a russian control center. that phase we're entering where both sides will be trying to hit each other from as far away as possible while russia continues its war crimes. but those systems the more holding and pushing back and breaking up of those russian forces the ukrainians will be able to do. >> and just before we came to you we report on the story that really many have been saying that ukraine has been saying for over a week that russia is using submarines in the black sea. what do you make of what we've been saying carrying out cruise missiles on ukrainian targets from the black sea. what are the challenges for ukrainians here, john?
11:35 pm
>> the point is to stay individual lpt even in the city like we saw odesa was struck, i think they're running out of cruise missiles to be honest so you see them using them such as a submarine fleet. but like we saw in kyiv, like in odesa, ukrainians have to stay vigilant. that's why i agree with curfews and things like that to keep people safe because russia is going to continue this basically missile terrorism. >> and very briefly, john, as we push forward with this offensive and we see this offensive play out, putin seems to be wanting a victory -- some sort of victory for may 9th. what are the risks here for ukraine as we look ahead to the next few weeks? >> yeah, a lot of risks. russia is being pushed a lot harder and a lot of us believe it's because they need something to celebrate because they really have to make something up at this point. they've lost so much so that the forces that are holding the line along the east has to be
11:36 pm
reinforced as quickly as possible. so this is an urgency for ukraine and the world really. >> yeah. and we don't know yet what that win would be. odesa we saw them attack odesa of course yesterday, mariupol perhaps. but explains really why we have seen russia attacking those critical supply lines of ukraine. always great to get your thoughts. appreciate it, john. actress angelina jolie is special envoy for the u.n. agency was seen visiting lviv where i am saturday. and also went to a train station to meet with the displaced. there she expressed her gratitude to the volunteers. have a listen. >> very complicated this time. but i imagine just to have a room where somebody shows that
11:37 pm
they care and is listening is so important. >> ukrainian journalist there she ran into jolie during a coffee run in the outskirts of lviv. that journalist said many people inside this cafe did not even notice jolie. the u.n. refugee agency says they're not involved in her visit and she's in ukraine in her personal capacity. and i'll have much more on ukraine in about 20 minutes or so. but for now i want to send it back to allison in new york. in washington the annual white house correspondent association dinner made a grand return on saturday after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemicch the black tie gala celebrates press freedoms, raises money for journalism programs and includes jokes at the expense of politicians and the media. cnn's kate bennett was there. >> reporter: tonight the return of the white house correspondents' dinner here in
11:38 pm
washington. this time after a hiatus, atemded by president joe biden and first lady jill biden. there's also a number of celebrities here this evening including kim kardashian and her boyfriend pete davidson. but the night was to celebrate journalism and the first amendment. the president roasting himself. >> i expected to face stiff opposition in the senate. i just hoped it would be from republicans. but i'm not worried about the mid-terms. i'm not worried about them. we may end up with more partisan gridlock, but i'm confident we can work it out during my remaining six years in the presidency. >> reporter: also host trevor noah did his fair share of joke also roasting the president as well as the many, many members of the media in attendance this evening. >> for those who don't know my name is trevor noah and i'm honored to be here honestly because you could have picked any comedian. you could have picked anyone but
11:39 pm
you went with the south african variant. very on theme. >> reporter: a welcome return after the pandemic break and after several years of president donald trump not attending, which is tradition. presidents do typically come to this dinner. despite the pandemic, despite the large number of attendees who all had to prove a negative covid test, the night was all about honoring journalists and returning to some normalcy. kate bennett, cnn, washington. we're following the aftermath of several tornados in the u.s., and there are more storms brewing. details from the cnn weather center after the break. we disiscover exciting new technologies. rededefine who we are and how e want to lead our lives. basicacally, choose what we wat our future to look like. so what's yours going to be?

rise from pain. and this breaking news just coming in from the capital kyiv. the speaker of the u.s. house of representatives, nancy pelosi, has made an announced visit to the ukrainian capital as you can see there to meet with president volodymyr zelenskyy. pelosi was accompanied by other democratic members of the house including adam schiff thereof california. she told mr. zelenskyy the u.s. is committed to be there for ukraine until the fight is done. we areshi short on details. this breaking news just coming into us. the u.s. speaker of the house nancy pelosi meeting with zelenskyy. this comes about a week or so
11:44 pm
from the viz from antony blinken and lloyd austin and their visit to the capital. we'll stay on top of this brinking news. as soon as we have more details of that meeting and what was said of course we shall bring it to you. for now i want to send it back to my colleague allison in new york. cleanup is under way 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 it damage is still being assessed. >> it's really sad. i hate seeing my family cry because they lost everything. i hate that all these things are like gone. i keep thinking what now and like i have nothing but trying to stay positive because last night was really terrible, a lot of tears. so it's just hard to see. >> cnn meteorologist derek van
11:45 pm
dam joins us now. derek, what's the latest on this storm? >> yeah, allison, here's a look at the tornado that struck on. dover, kansas. that was late friday evening. the national weather service website on scene and classified this is ef tornado. that is significant is multiple vortexes within that tornado so a wide swath of damage associated with that storm. today was a slightly quieter day but nonetheless we still had six tornado reports including one that was just west of the chicago downtown region. 18 reports of wind and 35 reports of hail damage. so expansive storm system, and when we talk about where we are in terms of the year to date how many tornados we normally get, we're about 120% of average. we've had over 580 tornados since the beginning of the year.
11:46 pm
we should see about only 485 year to date. this is a storm system causing all the problems right now, quieting down because we don't have the energy from the sun. we don't get that daytime heating, but things are going to fire back up today, specifically across the texas panhandle into southeast, colorado, damaging winds. and then with the update from the storm prediction center portions of of the midatlantic have a slight risk of severe weather as well. one low pressure system moving off the rockies, that's going to bring our next round of weather to the texas panhandle today but then it's going to focus its attention into the same areas hit friday evening including andover, kansas, and wichita region so something we need to mo monitor. over the western u.s. we continue to talk about the megadrought undergoing right now. right now 90% of the western u.s. under drought conditions.
11:47 pm
we focus so much attention across new mexico because it's been significantly bad here. the hurmts peak fire juls outside of santa fe actually the authorities there combined these two fires because they have -- were so close in proximity to each other, so what that did it actually lowered the containment for this area. so we continue to see those numbers go down, which is not good as we start to see those large fires spread and have difficulty with the firefighter efforts there. winds today they're going to continue to be gusty and pick up through the early parts of next week. not what we want to hear certainly. >> okay, derek van dam, thanks for the latest on that. hollywood stars johnny depp and amber heard are in the midst of a bitter defamation case over abuse claims after the collapse of their once glamorous marriage. more on the tragic aftermath just ahead. and music has lost one of its angelic voices. after the break we bid farewell
