when i'm on my hands and knees and i'm digging through the dirt, i feel something in me, like a fire, that's just growing. i feel kinder, when nature is so kind to me. find more ways to grow with miracle-gro. hello, everyone, i'm john vause. you're watching "cnn newsroom" live from cnn's world head quarters in atlanta. ahead, washington passes a staggering $40 billion bill for military and humanitarian aid for ukraine. and at this hour, joe biden
10:01 pm
heading to south korea. his first trip to asia as president while pyongyang watches closely. and the taliban continues to roll back the rights of women in afghanistan. now forcing a choice between covering their faces or losing their on-air jobs. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with john vause. >> a bill authorizing $40 billion in u.s. aid to ukraine is on its way to seoul, south korea, for president joe biden's signature. the aid package easily passed the u.s. senate on thursday but does not take effect until it is signed. another $100 million worth of artillery, radar and other e equipment headed to ukraine. and more than 1,000 cars have been blocked at a russian checkpoint for four days. the convoy is trying to reach
10:02 pm
ukrainian-held territory. with reports many making that journey are running low on food and water. in mariupol, more than 1,700 ukrainian troops have surrendered at the steel factory. cnn cannot verify that report, but an unknown number of soldiers apparently are holding out in the plant and vowing to continue to fight. ukraine's ongoing counteroffensive around kharkiv has made that city a lot safer than it was just a few weeks ago. now some residents who evacuated are starting to venture back, reuniting with loved ones and seeing what's left of their homes. dan rivers has this report. >> reporter: the siege of kharkiv was documented for us in march in this video diary. >> last night was probably the most terrifying night of my life. kharkiv was terribly bombarded. >> reporter: anasia filmed the destruction and her emotions, giving a harrowing insight into
10:03 pm
this war. >> air strikes all over the city. dozens of buildings destroyed. civilian buildings where people live. >> reporter: today, she's returned to her home city for the first time. she's with her mother after staying with friends in the relative safety of a town two hours from kharkiv. >> she's happy to see me. crying again. >> reporter: they haven't seen her father for almost two months.
10:04 pm
>> he says it's time to come back. >> reporter: in her video diary, she showed where she took refuge in her flat. a home she was forced to leave without knowing if she would ever see it again. >> this is our hiding place. it's vestibule area between two walls with no windows. i don't know why being bombarded is easier living in your home. >> reporter: but today, kharkiv is much safer. she's come back to check on her apartment.
10:05 pm
does it feel strange coming back? >> yes. oh, my room! it just feels odd, because it's so not usual like it's supposed to be. i just for some reason that i would return and all the furniture will be standing the right way. sorry. my bed is superior to the other beds. >> reporter: her flat is undamaged, but you don't have to go far to see the consequences of russia's bombing. >> when we were still in kharkiv, this was the closest -- for us, the closest large explosion. we heard incredibly loud noise and the windows and the doors in the house were shaking and this was off. >> reporter: walls peeled off by the blast which have laid bare lives ruined in an instant. what was destroyed and what
10:06 pm
wasn't are on display, like an exhibit in the museum. around the edge of the city, the war is very much in the presence. the attack on the city's town hall marked the beginning of the siege. today, almost in an act of defiance, flowers have been planted in front of it. for anasia, it is a sign kharkiv will recover. this building with us the heart of kharkiv. >> yes. >> reporter: would you say kharkiv's heart has been broken? >> yes, i would say so, for sure. it was the most excruciating thing to see this building rocketed. >> reporter: anasia has returned to a city scarred by this war, but one in which its citizens are beginning to glimpse no normality again. and there's something that's been absent for the people of kharkiv and anasia for so long -- hope. dan rivers, itv news, kharkiv. the war crimes trial of a
10:07 pm
russian soldier is set to resume in kyiv in a few hours. on thursday, he testified that he was ordered to shoot and unarmed civilian out of fear the 62-year-old man would give away their position. that followed a direct confrontation from the widow of the man the russian killed. >> translator: can you please tell me, what did you feel when you killed my husband? >> translator: shame. >> translator: do you repent? >> translator: yes. i acknowledge my fault. i understand that you will not be able to forgive me, but i am sorry. >> the trial expected to resume in about three hours from now. the first of what ukrainian prosecutors expect will be many, many more war crimes trials to come. president joe biden says finland and sweden have the full and complete backing of the united states for their formal applications to join nato. he welcomed the leaders of the two nations to the white house thursday, to show support and solidarity. finland and sweden said their bids are a direct result on
10:08 pm
russia's war on ukraine which sparked security concerns across the region. mr. biden says the nordic countries will bring new strength to the alliance. >> today, there is no question nato is relevant, it is effective, and it is more needed now more than ever. bottom line, it's simple, quite straightforward, finland and sweden make nato stronger. >> well, shortly after meeting with the leaders of finland and sweden, joe biden left for south korea and his first trip to asia as president, with the stated goal to, quote, affirm the importance of our indo-pacific alliances. cnn east kevin liptak and paula hancocks join us now. paula, i'll begin with you. where does the united states stand with the incoming south korean president when it comes to north korea and policy?
10:09 pm
>> reporter: well, john, what we've heard so far is from both the u.s. and the south korean side, saying they do believe that an intercontinental ballistic missile launch and test may bh be imminent from north korea. now, this is the kind of missile that if fired at a normal trajectory, which it is not when tested, could reach mainland united states, so, certainly there is a concern. we've heard from -- from the u.s. intelligence agencies, through a u.s. official familiar with the matter, that they believe that they may even be close at this point to fueling, putting fuel into an icbm. they have satellite images where they can see vehicles on the tarmac at the airfield near pyongyang, but at this point, they say there is no missile or launcher, but once the fuel goes into a potential missile, then it doesn't take much longer until that launch happens. so, we've heard from jake sullivan, the national security
10:10 pm
adviser, he said that they are preparing for all contingencico. obviously the concern being that some kind of a launch could happen while u.s. president joe biden is in the country. it would be remarkable if that happened. it hasn't in my memory ever happened that there's been some kind of a north korean launch or test while a u.s. president is in country. certainly it has happened just before or just after before in the past, but never while he has been in country. now, also, we've heard from both south korean and u.s. officials that they believe a seventh nuclear test is imminent, but we've also heard from the south korean side potentially not while the u.s. president is here. we have been hearing, though, from washington, that president biden has been at least his people have been consulting with allies in particular, the south korean president and his allies, they have a response ready if north korea were to carry out some kind of a test, so -- it really is a case of wait and
10:11 pm
see, as to whether or not north korea would carry this out. of course, they've only a week ago admitted they have a fairly serious covid outbreak within the country, but the same day they announced that, they also fired three short-range missiles, so, clearly showing that even though they are dealing with this outbreak, that's not going to slow their weapons testing and their missile testing down. so, we really are waiting to see whether or not there is going to be some kind of a test from north korea. this year, so far, has been quite remarkable. 15 missile launches so far. john? >> paula, stay with us, thank you. kevin, to you. north korea is always a problem, at least an issue for the united states and the u.s. president. but it won't be the focus of this trip by joe biden. >> reporter: well, certainly not the primary focus of the trip. and president biden is really coming over here to asia to try and reaffirm these important alliances in japan and south korea and sort of demonstrate his continued focus on this
10:12 pm
region, even as his time and attention have been really consumed by the war in ukraine. and what officials say is that the president is able to focus on both of these things at the same time. it's not one or the other. and the war in ukraine really sort of emphasizes this ability of the united states to convene its allies in response to aggression. and that's something that players in this region are certainly watching very closely, because even as this war has preceded in ukraine, these other hot spots are boiling up. in particular, north korea, as paula mentioned, preparing possibly for a nuclear test, a missile test, also china really flexing its military and economic muscles in this region. and that's something that the president has said that he wants to do more to counter china, to really show that the united states can play on that field, as well. certainly, he would have liked to travel to asia sooner in his presidency. he was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, of course,
10:13 pm
and by these other foreign hot spots. he's traveling here much later than his predecessors might have and really sort of thrown into question the idea of this whole pivot to asia. that's something that president 0 bam many talked about, that president trump alluded to, as well. now it's president biden's turn to turn his attention and renew what he's said what is the defining challenge of the 21st century, to counter china. when you see him here in seoul the first couple of hours, his first stop will be at a samsung plant that manufacturers these semiconductor chips that are so important to critical technologies, including cars. there's been a shortage of those because of plant shutdowns in china and one of president biden's main initiatives is to wean the united states off of chinese microchips and trying to find other sources of them, including in the united states, but also among allies in the region. so, that's something that you'll hear president biden talk about when he first gets to seoul in a matter of a couple of hours
10:14 pm
here, john. >> kevin, thank you, in seoul. also paula, thank you. well, the u.s. government scrambling to address the shortage of baby formula. lawmakers weigh in on this crisis ahead of operation baby formula air lift. also, final good-byes set to begin for the victims of the horrific mass shooting in buffalo, new york. you're the first person to actually do that. now i want to say congratulatitions, but it's a also disappointing. what do you mean? that's's it? i've got nothing left. hey if i werere you, i'd try warmrm milk. enough out of you! hi! oh go.. is this really helping? good days start with good nights, so you may want to talk to your doctor about both.

10:19 pm
first, the former attorney general bill barr has tentatively agreed to testify under oath to the house select committee according to two sources familiar with the negotiations. barr talked informally to the committee late last year. a two-hour long meeting focuses on his interactions with former president donald trump before and after the election. and this comes as the committee also investigating a capitol tour given by a republican congressman, one day before the deadly riots. the committee has asked barry loudermilk of georgia for more information about the tour. loud ermilk fired back, saying constituent family with young children meeting with their members of congress in the house office building is not a suspicious group of reconnaissance tour. the family never entered the capitol building. this select committee is pushing a verifiably false narrative that republicans conducted reconnaissance tours on january 5th. the biden administration is preparing to fly in the first batch of baby formula from overseas. the white house came to an agree

with nestle to transfer 1.5 million 8 ounce bottles of formula, part of the newly launched fly formula program. details from cnn's manu raju. >> reporter: nearly everyone in washington is angry about the nationwide shortage of baby formula. >> no one did well. nobody responded with adequate urgency. >> reporter: and lawmakers are getting an earful back home. >> i'm hearing concerns that it's hard to find formula and anybody who has been a parent knows what a, you know, what a panic that puts parents in. >> reporter: the shortage stemming from a shutdown at an abbott plant in michigan. severely disrupting the supply championship, given that abbott is one of just four companies controlling most of the u.s. market. >> we should be blaming the system, why we allowed a monopoly to occur. >> reporter: as the crisis has compounded, president biden invoked the defense production act. allowing the use of defense

department aircraft to pick up formula produced overseas, since 98% of baby food consumed by americans are made in the u.s. it's a move that even some democrats wished had been employed sooner. should biden have invoked the defense production act sooner? >> well, they did now. i will tell you, i sent a letter prior saying they should act, because we needed immediate action. >> reporter: that wasn't immediate enough? >> well, i can tell you i sent a letter for a reason. >> reporter: even loyal allies frustrated. >> i urged repeated use of the defense production act. i regret that it took a few days and maybe longer to do it. >> reporter: senator mark kelly battling to hang onto his seat in arizona did not mince words. >> we've got a major issue here, you know, we've got families across the country that are really struggling. i mean, there is not an alternative to this, so, this is a critical, i mean, it's a crisis right now. >> reporter: fda commissioner robert califf grilled by both
10:22 pm
parties today. >> it all begs the question, why did the fda not spring into action? >> reporter: califf predicted the problem would soon be fixed. >> i can tell my constituents that within a matter of days they'll be able to find formula on the shelves? >> within days, it will get better, but it will be a few weeks before we're back to normal. >> reporter: for democrats struggling to keep control of congress, the issue only adding to their problems. do you worry that all these issues could hurt your ability to keep the house? >> sure. i'm not an idiot, so, yeah, i mean, you know, people have challenges. we got to get a stronger, better message out there. there's no question about it. if you are a democrat and not worried about that, you're not paying attention. >> reporter: now, the senate on thursday passed a bill that would allow low income individuals to use federal benefits to purchase baby formula, but a separate bill that actually passed the house and is awaiting action in the senate faces uncertain future in the chamber, because gop senators are skeptical of providing $28 million to fda to help deal with this crisis.
10:23 pm
now, this all comes as some democratic senators are calling on the white house to name one point person to help oversee this crisis, but at the moment, it's unclear if the white house will go this route. manu raju, cnn, capitol hill. in the u.s., children ages from 5 to 11 are now eligible for a covid booster shot. on thursday, the director for the centers for disease control approved the extra shot. it will be a pfizer vaccine, the only one approved as a booster for children in the united states. the cdc says the dose should be given at least five months after the first two doses. state lawmakers in oklahoma have passed one of the country's strictest abortion bills, essentially banning all abortions after fertilization. the bill would also allow private citizens to sue providers who knowingly perform abortions. the only exceptions are for medical emergencies or for rape and incest and is reported for law enforcement. the bill is waiting for approval

welcome back, everybody. i'm john vause. it's been nine months since the taliban seized control of afghanistan. and with each passing day, more rights, more freedoms, are being stripped away from afghan women
10:30 pm
and girls. just this week, the militant group ordered all female tv presenters to cover their faces while on air. many journalists fear what could be next. cnn's christiane amanpour has our report. >> reporter: for the past five months, this woman has been anchoring the morning news on tolo tv, but this might be the last time she can show her face on air. the morning editorial meeting starts with worried discussion about mandatory masking. station director said he'd considered just shutting down and leaving, but then he thought, female staff who want to carry on anchoring with a mask can, while those who don't will get other jobs behind the scenes. >> we will leave the last decision to them. they will make their own decision. >> reporter: and it's a tough decision for these women, who brave the new taliban regime to stay on the air, who already adjusted their head scarves to
10:31 pm
hide their hair and who now fear a steep slide back to the middle ages. she says she's so stressed, she couldn't even present her program properly. >> translator: it's not clear, even if we appear with the burqa, maybe they will say that women's voices are forbidden. they want women to be removed from the screen. they are afraid of an educated woman. >> reporter: across town, the taliban government spokesman was attending a meeting with local journalists to mark a slightly delayed world press freedom day. we stopped him on the way in. you have said they have to wear a face mask if they're on television, women. why? "it's advisory from the ministry," he says. but what does that mean? is it compulsory? "if it is said, they should wear it. it will be implemented as it is in our religion to," he says. "it is good if it's
10:32 pm
implemented." afghan women are afraid that this is the beginning of your efforts to erase them from the work space. they're afraid that if they wear the mask, the next thing you will say is their voice cannot be heard publicly. what is your response to that? "like during covid," he says, "masks were mandatory. women would only be wearing hi jab or masks and they will continue their work." he seems to say that if women wear this they can go to work, but the dress code edicts says that female university students should wear black, not colored head scarves, is an escalating war of nerves and everyone fears where this will lead. back at tolo news, these female anchors are distraught. "what should we do," cries tamina. "we don't know. we were ready to fight to the last to perform our work, but they don't allow us."
10:33 pm
"we woman have been taken hostage. we can't get educated or work, like me, who has worked on air for years and can't leave. i can't go on screen." "since the taliban takeover, the station's employed even more women than before, because they need a safe space. and as for the actual journalism, tolo news is afghanistan's leading independent news channel, but the director says they'll all quit the day the taliban pressures them to tailor their coverage or lie to a public that's come to trust the truth they've been deliverering over 20 years. he saved the station so far, recruiting a whole new staff after most employees fled the b taliban's arrival. >> from management level, i stood alone and i was only think ing that -- how to keep the
10:34 pm
screen alive, not to go dark. >> reporter: the challenge now is keeping it from going dark. christiane amanpour, cnn, kabul, afghanistan. the founder and executive director of a nonprofit organization for gills education in afghanistan called learn. good to see you, and thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having me. >> so, this edict for women anchors on the tv news to cover their faces, it is shocking, but at the same time, it's hardly surprising. >> oh, yeah, definitely. it's not surprising, i was just watching the video, the way the girl was dressing, i was like -- we all saw it coming. they are trying to seek attention and they have been consistent. they were taking months to have another decree about women, now they are being consistent. the >> one of the most egregious is
10:35 pm
denying girls a secondary level education. and that's despite all the promises to the contrary last year. and this week, during an in interview with cnn, a senior taliban official was holding out this prospect that maybe change was coming. listen to this. >> translator: girls are allowed to go to school up to grade six and above that grade, the work is continuing on a mechanism. very soon, you will hear very good news about this issue, god willing. >> being totally realistic, do the taliban have any intention of ever allowing girls to receive a full education, the same kind of education that boys would receive? >> i mean, the first thing that anyone would need to ask from the taliban is, what is this mechanism that they are trying to put in place that is not needed for girls from grade one to six, but 7 up to 12th and is not needed by girls that are already going to colleges and
10:36 pm
universities. those are two different things that we have to understand. this is a very sensitive topic and they do know that. back in the day, taliban got a lot of attention on this and they are trying to milk this, that's it, because they already know this is a sensitive topic and these were projects that were funded by u.s. and they need more money and they are trying to use it as a bargaining chip. but also coming back to your question, i personally think if they are politically -- they need to open schools. you can't alienate the daughters of afghanistan. there are teachers and students within that community. but then at the same time, i do think they won't be so equal the way they have been open and making sure that the schools for boys remain open. they won't continue the same support for the schools for girls. >> so, not only are they misogynists, but they as hate music, it seems. here's the founder of the
10:37 pm
national school of music. >> once again, afghanistan is a silent nation. once again, afghanistan is a place where the taliban forcibly deny the music of afghan people. and also to let international community know today the people of afghanistan do not have the right to listen to music, to play music, to learn music. >> so, it's a case of, meet the new taliban, just the same as the old taliban. and they've been rolling out these restrictions or ramping up the restrictions, if you like, while a lot of the world's focus has been on ukraine. and i guess at the end of the day, is this where afghanistan is basically heading, from the moment the taliban seized power, basically back to where it was from 1996? >> i mean, we are already there. we are not headed, we are already there. the day we were abandoned, not by the international community, but abandoned and were released from the world as a legitimate government, we have lost all those things. we are there already. we were there yesterday. we don't have the right to work right now in afghanistan.
10:38 pm
we don't have the right to leave the country or travel into the country. we don't have the right, you cannot listen to music, you cannot go out, you cannot socialize. and if you know that afghanistan is one of the lively countries in central asia and does believe in deep culture and our culture does have a segment where music is practiced and where music is taught to kids. so, for me personally, afghanistan is already there. which it with us in the late '90s. we're not headed there. we are already there. >> any reason for hope that things will change? >> i mean, in the '90s, yes, back in the day, women were teaching in schools, there were women who were resisting. there were people who were trying to run and the same is happening now. one cannot always say that these are the principles of afghanistan, but there is always an opposing force and i do believe in it and right now, i can see that women are leading it, including women within afghanistan who are trying to resist and women outside of afghanistan who are trying to make sure that they are presenting the actual

afghanistan, not the one the taliban are trying to show the word. so, yeah, always hope, yeah. >> that is a good note to finish. appreciate your time. >> thank you. well, coming up, a puppet show for preserving a species, raising condor chicks without exposing them to human contact. and that requires some imagination. sensitive. new dove ultimate antiperspirant. our unique w water based formula and 6x more glycerin. helps restore skin to its best conditionon. new dove ultimate. power e*trade gives you an award-winning mobile app with powerful, easy-to-use tools, and interactive charts to give you an edge. 24/7 support when you need it the most. plus, zero-dlar commissions for online u.s. listed stocks.
