stories, after more than a week on the run, a violent end in the hunt for a former aal alprison guard and escaped inmate. welcome to the show, every with within. for it's 9:00 a.m. in ukraine. and russian president, vladimir putin, may not have given away any of his military plans on monday, but russian forces are cheerly focussed on punishing the ukrainian port of odesa. the city has been hit by a barrage of cruise missiles in the past day. fires from russian planes, ships and submarines. and these are brand new pictures just in to cnn. at least one person was killed in attacks on a shopping mall, as well as two hotels. they say russian forces are continuing their storm offensive on the steel works in mariupol.
the ministry posted video monday of ukrainian flag with the last remaining ukrainian soldiers said to be holding out. in kharkiv, video posted on social media shows the afteaftermath on attacks to a civilian convoy trying to escape the fighting. they say they lost contact with the group on friday. ukrainians fighting back as russians fight in the donbas region. and two bridges that could enable to the russians to cut off ukrainian supply lines. meanwhile, the u.s. congress is expected to take up a $40 billion aid bill for you cane in the coming hours. president biden says existing funding will run out in about ten days. well the brutality of russia's war stands in stark contrast to the pomp and circumstance on display in moscow on monday.
the annual victory day parade commemorates the soviet union's victory in world war ii. but this year putin seemed more focussed on rewriting history than remembering it. here's a story to you. >> reporter: one's pufraid the many. the many on parade for one. and on the eve of victory day, authorities here say 60 people died in a russian air strike. the victory over german naziism once united the peoplel of russia and you cane. not anymore. this is what putin's modern ukraine looked like on the eve of that victory day in the east of the country. for mariupol and kier sawn and the most violence in the east,
where most people speak russian. on victory day, ukrainian towns under russian control held muted memorials to a past war while the present rages on. this man survived the fight. and his response to putin's parade. let them celebrate. we would celebrate too. imagine what they bombed, an ordinary vill wj only pensioners and chilleden are. they died during an operation to throw military bridge across the donbas river shown here in the satellite image. the river is intended to cut the supply route to ukrainian towns now under bombardment. they're counterattacking and the artillery is already hitting the road and oil refinery next to
it. it's clear the russians are continuing with their campaign to obliterate civilian life. but this is also a sign they're pursuing traditional tactics, trying to break the infrastructure that could support the ukrainian war effort. >> reporter: putin's claims have turned back on the russian leader by survivors of the real war against hitler's ideology. she says i think victory will be ours, only ours. if i was younger, i would have ripped his throat out with my teeth. the president is insisting ukraine's victory is cert issen. are the one who is repeating the horrific crimes of hitler's regime today, following nazi philanthropy, following everything they did, he's doing. but it will be a long, hard fight to turn the lesson os of history into a modern day
victory. protesters in poland made it clear how they feel about russia's victory day. they doused him in blood red paint and this happened at a soviet cemetery. the ambassador was trying to lay a wreath, ukrainian and polish protesters blocked his path. they blamed neo-nazi supporters for the incident. it's live. and claire, what has been the russian reaction to its ambassador being doused with red paint? >> reporter: said the tone for the foreign ministry spokesperson very much in keeping with what we heard during victory day, the sense they're fighting the ideological successor to the second world war. they've once with again shown their face and it's bloody. you can't scare us.
the people should be scared of their own reflection. it's clear they're rattled. the latest telegram post, sort of addressed directly to the ambassador, she wanted to give him a hug. this certainly did rattle the foreign embassy. they've said they would protest. and they've scaled down events of the day and haven't held a full victory day celebration and saying all that was left was to insure elementary order. looks like they will protest this event. >> let's turn our attention, claire, to the port city of odesa, that has been pounded. quite dramat clay in the last few days, particularly the last 24 hours. this is a key port city for ukraine. and could crucially has a big impact on the economy here and beyond. >> it's the ukraine and russia together are represent 80% of
the world's wheat and majority is exported through its black sea ports. odesa has been under blockade for a while now and the world food program has been sounding the alarm for are a while, saying 40 million people are rely on ukraine's wheat. it's not just about the grain sitting in silos waiting to be exported. it's about the next harvest, which is under threat because of the lack of labor. lack of fertilizer. all of these things compounded. and president zelenskyy actually addressed this. take a listen. >> translator: this is not just a strike at ukraine. without our grain export, dozens of countries in various regions of the world have found themselves on the brink of food deficit. with time, the situation can truly become disastrous. politicians have already begun looking into ramifications of
the price hike that send food shortages into africa and asia. >> reporter: a shortage, potentially, of grain oo to be exported to countries like africa and asia. we knowple sources said the rush forces are stealing grain and farm equipment in large quantities. compounding the situation, which has major global ramifications. >> this is exactly why i heard from the deputy may or as he no only attacked the supply lines but silos. thanks very much. now, ukraine prosecutor general are sairussian arm -- a that includes the deliberate bombs of civilian, with torch rb and the use of rape as a weapon. we spoke to two women who described their terrifying
ordeal when their village was occupied why russian troops. a warning some of the language is graphic. >> reporter: the remnants of a nasty battle caught in the cross fire, a quiet farming village. here russian soldiers are accused of doing more than destroying homes. two women say they rape them too. >> reporter: what the son of a. [ bleep] did to me was horrible. he forced me to -- i can't talk about it. i'm are ashamed and scared. >> reporter: she shows us where russian soldiers fired a shot in the marshal in their home. one ole kbrks a. and the other dana. sflrs she says they dragged her down the street to her neighbor's small farm house. there a grandfather, her daughter, daughter's husband and grandson were inside sleep issing when the soldiers
arrived. >> translator: i hear them banging at the dar so hard everything was shaking, even the windows. >> said she stayed in the house. her son in law went outside with the neighbors. >> there was a short conversation and then a bang, shot like firework, i shook. >> they killed him. >> they were calling each other by name saying look who we're goi goi going to. [ bleep] >> she says she tried to reason with him. >> i said my younger son is the same age as you. i asked if he had a girlfriend and he said yes, she's 17 but i haven't had sex with her. he answered he hadn't seen a woman in two weeks. the soldier promised not takill
her but when she escaped, she had to risk her life to get home because this village was under heavy bombardment. >> translator: i thought oh, my god, someone will see me and kill me. >> reporter: the two women survived the assault and then became the target of nasty gossip by other neighbors who saw russian soldiers hanging around one of her homes. the grandmother said that's because she demanded help burying her husband. >> translator: you came at night and hear him, you have to help us bury him. >> we're standing on the grave? >> reporter: she takes us to her backyard and points to two patches of dirt. her daughter couldn't bear the pain and left the country. her neighbor decided to fight back. >> i can accuse some of them ta. >> reporter: do you feel youvl
are been punished twice? kwu once by the rape and the other by the rumors? >> it's true but god can see everything. >> reporter: they say reports on a new hotline have exploded. >> more than 700 calls since the first of april. >> reporter: the united nations says rape is often used as a weapon of war. but says tracking down evidence and identifying perpetrators of any war crime is especially daunting. >> it sounds to me like many of the war crimes will go unpunished. how do you not lose your mind listening to the horrific stories of rape? >> translator: it's very difficult. i know someone has to dait for our fighters risking their lives. they're in danger every minute. this is my own frontline.
>> reporter: one of ukraine's top prosecutors told this details described by these women behind this gate very clearly constitute war crimes. this survivor says she intends to help them prove it. what should happen to them? >> translator: i want them to be punished by the court. the judges must decide what to do with them. shoot them, kill them with, tear them apart. the bastes. >> reporter: cnn, ukraine. >> important piece there. frrlts a show of solidarity was on display in paris. the colors of ukraine's flag monday night. the light show was held as the european union marked a day proposed to celebrate. on the continent. and you are watching "cnn newsroom." still to come, a very dramatic

this car crash is part of the dramatic end to an 11-day man hunt for a fugitive inmate and alabama corrections officer. authorities say they were able to remove inmate, casey white, from the wrecked car, after a high-speed police chase in southern indiana. but say officer vicki white was pinned inside with a gun shot wound to her head and later died in the hospital. a police tip led authorities to the pair who were hundreds of miles away from the jail where casey white escaped. romero picks up the story from here. >> they in custody. >> reporter: a triumphant fort lauder day and first this f 150 truck and casey white spotted in, indiana.
reported to alabama authorities wednesday night. >> the vehicle was located a while back. we at least knew they made a dent in our area. but i couldn't believe. >> they found them in a hotel in evans vill. that's when the two fled the police in a cadillac. u.s. marshalls pinned their car. they ended up in a dish. they say vicki white had a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head. she died from those injuries monday night. casey white will bow brought back to his arhinement. >> he's not getting out of this jail again. kwl assure you of that. >> reporter: he's focussed on the victim of casey white and connie ridgeway. he's set to stand trial for
charges rehated to ridgeway's death later this summer. >> after finally being able to indict him for her murder of having the twist and turn, it's got to be devastating to him. we look forward to bringing him to justice. >> cnn, lauder dale county, alabama. and two law enforcement experts to provide their insight on methods used to capture inmates unaring from the law like vicki and casey white. >> no two man hunts are alike. but luckily we have this rapidly advancing manhunt program. and so, from that, we just lean on our past experiences and support from headquarters and every personnel and sister out there that was able to put all this together >> these are always very
dangerous, very kind of high-stakes and totally unique operations. you never really know how one of the chases is going to end up. it's very, very hard for anyone to stay on the run for any significant period of time simply because of the profusion of video surveillance and the ability of media and social media to get the intelligence out to the public in a very rapid fashion a. it's somewhat inevitable folks get caught. you hope it happens in a non-violent way. that wasn't the case here. >> authorities say they received hundreds of tips, inclauding one that ultimately led to the location of vicki and casey white. and still to come. ukrainians are working tirelessly to get the wounded from the frontlines to hospitals. with injuries many of the country's surgeons have never encountered before. here's their stories when we return.

and to their fors. some testing their skills by performing procedures they've only read about in books. demtro is in shock. his organs punctured multiple times by shrapnel from shelling outside kyiv. at first he was very tough, he tells me. and then i came to terms with everything that happened to me. his voice almost a whisper. he tells me he regrets not listening to his elders that fateful day. >> how are you feeling after horrendous few days? i never thought i would say it. you have is to protect yourself to the maximum and follow all the rule ares that are told by adults, he said.
>> reporter: the 90-year-old who lost both his parents before the war was evacuated by train and transferred here to with western ukraine's biggest hospital, where he's undergone multipleal surgeries and spent week thins icu. his doctor told me he too is struggling to make sense of the injuries he's been seeing. >> i've done some operations that i only read from the book. and my colleague from u.s.a. are -- austria and germany, they have experience but they've never seen such serious disease. >> reporter: he's part of a steady stream of patients that arrive ared on medical trains like this one. an impressive wartime operation with an in-built icu carriage which travels back and fworgt critically ill patients.
ilities are rar patient that they have to make when she left southern ukraine. the 90-year-old is now recovering with a piece of shrapnel, measuring one centimeter, entered her brain as she made her way home. she's very strong. she hasn't even cried when she got wounded, her mother tells me. visibly exhausted, her mother showed me photos of happier times. now relieved, her little girl is turning a corner. at first, when she started breathing independently, they let me walk in to the icu. i walked in and unexpectedly she said, mummy, with tears in her eyes. i was so happy that she remembered me and she didn't lose her memory. sophia tells me he's never seen a case like this. as he shows me her c.t. scans.
so, the shrapnel came through the front all the way, perforated all the way at the back of the skull? the doctor tells me he operates on as many as five children every week. proof, perhaps, that even the most innocent are not immune to the scars of russia's war. >> of course, we wish them both a very speedy recovery. and ahead on the show, in the philippines, ferdinand marcos jr. is on the brink of winning the presidency. we'll have a live ereport for yu after a short break.

u.s. president joe biden will be addressing a global covid-19 summit on thursday. this comes as his administration warns that if congress doesn't approve increased funding to contain the pandemic, the u.s. could see tens of millions of new cases in the coming fall and winter. to prevent that possible surge,
the white house has requested more than $22 billion for updated vaccines, testing and treatments. and you can see from this map that new cases are trending up in much of the u.s., which means another vaccine dose might be needed. a new study finds that a fourth dose of the moderna or pfizer covid vaccine is safe and provides a substantial immunity boost. dr. erik tobo is a cardiologist and professional with scripps research. he joins me from la jolla in california. thank you, doctor, for all that you do. >> thank you, rosemary. good to be with you begin. >> absolutely. so, doctor, the biden administration is issuing a new warning that the u.s. could potentially see 100 million covid-19 infections this fall and winter if congress doesn't approve more money to fight the coronavirus.
do you agree with that prediction? and what do people need to be doing right now to avoid infection, hospitalization, or perhaps worse? >> right. well, if we learn anything, as you know, rosemary, this virus is quite unpredictable. the 100 million cases in the late fall or winter is certainly possible. we saw almost twice as many in the worst monstrous omicron wave which really hit us the first part of this year. right now, though, we're seeing a significant increase in cases and we're starting to see some substantial increase in hospitalizations. it's because of this variant that's about to become dominant, the so-called ba-2.1-2-1, which is a subvariant of omicron, but it's a lot more transmissible than omicron or the ba.2. we are likely to see a substantial number of cases. recent days, today was 85,000.
we had a few days last week of 100,000. that's just the confirmed cases. we know so many people either don't get tested or have rapid tests, so that could be half a million cases a day or even up to a million for all we know. >> it's a good point. doctor, some of us have never been infected with covid, while others appear to get infected multiple times. and some of those infections are asymptomatic, while others develop such serious symptoms they end in death. what more are we learning about that extraordinary scope of reaction to covid, and why some people never get it at all? >> severe covid is where there have been breakthroughs in genetics. the innate immune pathway is the first line of defense. it's altered in some people, making them more susceptible or less.
and there's more mystery of why certain people can be exposed multiple times whenever you can get an infection and never have an antibody response. that's likely very rare and we don't have that case cracked yet but a lot of work is being done to unravel. >> it's extraordinary, isn't it? in some families one person gets it and others don't. further down the road, we will learn more. doctor, perhaps it is the less severe subvariant of omicron. but most people have now become more relaxed about the possibility of getting infected. no longer wearing masks and being more comfortable in crowds. many of those perhaps because they're vaccinated. when you look at where the world and the pandemic, going in and out of cycles of infection, when do you think we'll fully emerge from the pandemic and what do
you think will take to do that? >> unfortunately, as the virus continues to evolve, and now it's on an accelerated evolution, with it's more and more of a challenge. our vaccines and boosters aren't holding up as well. or for as long. and we may see something that's beyond these omicron variants. that is a whole other curveball greek letter the way omicron came in and surprised us. in the months ahead, there's many paths to a whole new variant, such as through millions of people who are immuno compromised, who can cultivate the virus inside him unwittingly and have that transmit to another person. which is why we think omicron had its origin. also, we have so much potential spillover from the animal, multiple animal reservoirs.
and lack of containment around the world. we face still this virus causing more trouble, even beyond the inemas we've seen in recent months. we should plan what's better and be aggressive and deal with more variants. >> and doctor, how difficult is it, from your perspective, to convince patients they need to get all their eligible covid shots, particularly those over 60? >> it's essential. because the virus has evolved is not the failure of the vaccines from the really protection from severe covid. without that, basically the two doses or your past four to six months of a third dose, you're getting back down to a low-level of protection that's just not good enough. so, that's why the fourth and
second booster is important for people over age 50 or 60. certainly that's available now in the united states and also in many other countries. so, this is the problem. we don't have nearly enough people who even have a third shot. and their protection has waned, no less now, additional boosters. we can't keep going on with all these boosters, of course. that's why we would like to see a coronavirus vaccine and more m medications to help as a back stop. >> always a pleasure to talk with you. many thanks. >> thanks so much, rosemary. are the u.s. senate has passed a bipartisan bill that would provide extra security of family members of supreme court justices. on monday supporters of abortion rights rallied near the home of justice samuel aheato, the
author of a leaked draft opinion that would strike down the landmark 1973 case, roe verses wade, that legalized abortion. demonstrators say they were holding a vigil for all the rights he is threatening to take away. protesters with signs saying keep your roseries off our overries gathered outside the home of chief justice john roberts. he called the league absolutely appalling, while showing no concern about the likely decision to eliminate a woman's right to choose. the demonstrations were peaceful. they also rallied outside the home of brett kavanaugh. one of the three justices appointed by former president donald trump, all appear to have voted to overturn roe. meanwhile, the senate will soon
vote on federal legislation that would guarantee the right to an abortion. but democrats don't have the votes. they will, however, be able to get republicans on the record opposing abortion right ares, which could hurt them in the midterm later this your. the vote on the women's health protection act is expected on wednesday. well, high wind threatened to make wildfires burning across the u.s. southwest even worse this week. and that includes the nation's largest active blaze, the calf canyon hermit's creek fire a in new mexico. those high winds meant some aircraft were grounded on sunday. meteorologist joins us with more on all of this. what are you seeing? >> i'm also seeing the record heat going with this as well. we're talking about triple digits. going to feel summer-like, into august across portions of the southwest.
we're talking 12 large acts of fires scattered around the southwest. one of them across northern new mexico. as new york city approaching the value with 100 naevl,000. and containment numbers up to almost 50%. at least better news. containment go from 40 to 43%. we're still watching critical levels for, not only high winds, low humidity and possibly to wednesday into areas of eastern arizona and portions of new mexico. the national weather services offices in new mexico have been as busy as it gets. they issue about 40 red flag weather alerts. you'll notice we're near 39 in the first five months of the year and seven months left. you'll notice the record for the entire year is 85. gusty winds remain in the forecast and that's are tlr conc --
