12:01 am
live from cnn center, this is cnn newsroom. with rosemary church. >> today marks one week since 21 innocent lives were cut short by a gunman who opened fire inside an elementary school in uvalde texas. in the hours ahead, the first funeral will be held in the devastated community. one day after grieving family gathered for visitations or two of the young victims. more visitation and funerals are planned in the week ahead. but some of the 19 students and two teachers killed in the horrific shooting. but amid the grief, there is growing anger over the police response. as the justice department to repair first a lot to review a law enforcement actions. cnn's, adrian bowed, us has more. >> we are now getting our first
12:02 am
glimpse at some of the information relate to officers outside. robb elementary. school as a massacre was unfolding on the inside. abc news obtained a portion of video that appears to be audio from one 9-1-1 operator relaying information from a child inside the classroom. >> you have a child -- he is in the room for. but >> cnn has not been able to independently confirm the audio or add one point in the incident was hurt. on friday the texas covid safety director says there is at least eight 9-1-1 calls from two collars in the school. pleading for help. investigators now say 19 officers waited outside the classroom where the gunman was or about 15 minutes until a customs and border patrol team decided to go in without direct orders. that is according to texas state senator, roland
12:03 am
gutierrez. >> make clear to me is that at that time the cbp team that went in and frustration said we are going in. >> the justice department now says it will review the law enforcement response which texas officials say deviated from active shooter protocols. >> that they got there sooner and some of the would've taken immediate action we might have had more of those children here today, couldn't editor. >> texas state senator roland gutierrez said that present but don't rob elementary school possibly be razed and rebuilt. gutierrez says there's a federal grants process for schools where there have been mass shootings. >> what kind of world are we living in that legislation was created for raising the schools. many uvalde parents those questions coming to light. matter who is held responsible talk about but my daughter. back that is out those who like ten-year-old garza remember.
12:04 am
a decade of -- describe by family a sassy, funny, and a little diva who hated wearing dresses. memories of happier times as her family friend and communities say, goodbye during visitation at a rosary service. >> brings me joy to know that i had an opportunity to have such a great daughter. and i try to be the best father that could be. >> just on the road, another grieving family says goodbye to my day rodriguez. also ten years old. >> a lover, and i miss her and proud of her. shot be a marine biologist before she even say the word. she loved animals. >> so much potential -- her classmates color here. she said she was brave when the other suits with the high comes before the 18 yard gunman entered the classroom. and five his mother also said,
12:05 am
her daughter was her heartbeat. but it is the rhythm of this community that is helping her family and others who forward they face their new reality. life without the children and adults they loved. adrienne broaddus, cnn, if all day texas. >> mark foreman is a reporter for mother jones and is the author of trigger point inside the mission to stop mass shooting. and he joins me now from california's bay area thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you for having me. >> we are of course all distressed and second by new somebody at another deadly mass shooting in this country. this time at elementary school. when 18th man was able to legally purchase weapons of war and murder young children. and we want to see some progress on gun control. most americans do. so in your article you state
12:06 am
that the epidemic of mass shootings is neither inevitable nor unsolvable. so how did we stop this from happening. >> well as i wrote late last week i think that it is important for the american public to recognize that there is a lot more we can do to deal with this epidemic of mass shootings that. it is not just about the gun debate and gun policy. of course that is essential to this. and there is an incredibly stark disconnect between what the majority of the american public wants and what our political leaders do. >> so mark how are you suggesting that it be done? >> so my focus in the book is on community based violent prevention. i think we could use all more of it. it is more proactive approach to seeing the warning signs that lead up to these attacks. we have some big myths about mastering's. we talk about all these mass shootings as if they're crazy people just snap and come out of nowhere. that is just wrong. if these cases.
12:07 am
and every single case was a long process leading up to them with warning signs. and so by working to intervene more proactively there's a lot we can do to prevent these kinds of attacks. including like the ones we have seen. both in texas and in buffalo new york. >> and mark, in addition to this, urgent part that is in negotiations are underway discussing red flag laws to deny guns to individuals deemed a threat to themselves or others. expanded background checks which most americans support and more money for mental health and school security. senators from both parties in the meeting virtually this week. and will hopefully have a bill ready to vote on next week. but you know, people are pretty cynical, they said some movement before and nothing is happened. so how likely is it that these bipartisan talks will see progress in stopping mass shootings? >> i think the skepticism is
12:08 am
very well warranted. i think the politics of this hard stop has ever. and extremely difficult to political environment in the united states. so again, i think there's more we do in our state and local level to deal with this problem. building up mental health care systems, building up community based violence prevention, dealing with political extremism that turned violent which is a growing problem in our country. it has been feeling some of these mass shootings as i've written recently. so we can't rely on the same old political fight to continue comported we want to see real change in this country. >> i think most of overseas foreign so shocking is that an 18-year-old has access to legally purchased these sorts of weapons. and that is just extraordinary. because for the most part it is 1819, 20-year-old, men who are committing these mass shootings. so i want to get to the media here. because it does have a role to play. to cover these stories without
12:09 am
sensation, to talk about the lives of the victims, because that is important. some people understand who has been lost where this is gun violence. and not to talk about the gunman. to pressure those in power to do something about these on acceptable mass shootings, and you've written that this is a real challenge for the media. that is it's a balancing act. so news outlets getting better are covering these shootings, do you think? >> i think there has been some improvement in recent years and it is a big challenge with these cases. because it is very important to avoid sensationalism and excessive attention on the perpetrators of these attacks. because we know from case evidence that they seek that attention. they want to notoriety. at the same time, reporting on these events vigorously is very strongly in the public interest. these attacks have enormous impact and cause profound trauma. not just in the community where they happen, but throughout the country. a look where we are again. just for the last couple of
12:10 am
weeks. so it is very important that journalist dig into what happens in these cases and reports on the circumstances. and evolved in particular the lot forsman response, which of course have been catastrophic, that is the very important story going forward. but again we, have to do this in a way that does not sensationalized this kind of violence. and i also argue, does not bite the idea that it will never had. and we are sort of reside to this going on and on. because that, it innovates up, is feeding into the problem in my view, at this point. >> sadly there's so many parts of the stories. it is just tragic. mark foreman, thank you so much, joining us we appreciate it. >> good talking with you. >> canadian prime minister, justin trudeau, is not pushing to strengthen gun control. and a news conference on monday he produced legislation that would place a national freeze on hand gun ownership across canada. meaning the bill would cap sale,
12:11 am
transfers, and imports. researchers have said the fewer guns in the community to say for everyone will be. the new legislation will also require that long gun magazines be limited to five rounds of. the eu is one step closer to passing a new sanction package on russia. on monday, you leaders agreed to a partial ban on russian oil imports as a response to moscow's invasion of ukraine. the move come up to 90% of oil imports by the end of the year. after weeks of negotiations all eu leaders seem to agree on its principles. this according to european commission president, ursula von der leyen. >> thanks to this counts should now be able to finalize a ban on almost 90% of all russian oil imports by the end of the year. this is an important step
12:12 am
forward. >> and cnn's clarissa sebastian joins me now from london. good morning to you claire. this is a partial black van. but if significant nonetheless. how will this work? how long will it take to impact us economy? which obviously is the goal here. >> rosemary, not as much as the eu had wanted to do. not as much as was in the original announcement of the sixth package about a month ago. but frankly more than we had been told to expect from this extraordinary summit. which has taken place on monday and continuing today. how it will work his that initially this would be just a ban on seaborne oil exports from russia. that covers about two thirds. of the eu's imports from russia. then to get to 90% of the pipeline oil, some of it will go through the jerusalem pipeline which apparently the only remaining pipeline that delivers russian oil to europe. it's got a northern part that goes to poland and germany. and the southern part goes to
12:13 am
slovakia and serbia services hungary and several other countries. the northern part i've seen that has a verbal agreement from poland and germany that they would want that down by the end of the year. the southern part that will be exempted. it is set to return to that soon. but this isn't just a logistics of it. the importance of reducing the steel was about showing unity in the face of russian aggression. unity that has been tested by the very prospect of an oil ban. listen to what you council president sharp michel had to say about that. -- >> the recent history. sundays those speculations about the risk for a lack of unity of european union unity. i think it's more than ever it's important to show that we are able to be strong. that we are able to be firm. that we are able to be tough. and to defend our value. to defend our interest. >> of course this is also about inflicting pain on the russian
12:14 am
economy and economy like it's used to fund the war in ukraine. now in its fourth month. oil and gas together account for about 44% of russia's budget. leisure oil is the biggest export in 2020 russia export about 74 billion barrels of worth of or. oil tradition is more lucrative as well the gas. so this potentially hits russia where it hurts in the eu has also been as a block the biggest customer for russian oil. but i think i would to hertz russia the pence on how they react to the faith and how quickly they can find you customers. we know that for example, china, which is of the biggest individual customer before this has been wrapping up before this and india has been wrapping up. the question is how fast can they find it's hard? buyers >> very good, pointe claire sebastian joining us live from london, many thanks. and we will get the latest updates from the battlefield in ukraine, including a look at russia's push to capture a city that is already in ruins, that

>> russian forces are gaining ground in the eastern donbas region of ukraine and moving into the city of severodonetsk the ukrainian military governor says that russian troops are gradually moving towards downtown, but have not captured the whole city. ukraine's defense ministry reports that battles have reached maximum intensity, with artillery strikes along much of the frontline. a spokesman says that the russians are trying to encircle ukrainian troops in donetsk and luhansk so vero donetsk is set
12:20 am
to be in ruins with two thirds of the properties destroyed. street fighting is underway between ukrainian and russian troops. meantime, u.s. president joe biden says that he will not provide ukraine with a large range rocket systems that confined to russia and an adviser into ukraine's president says that he cannot defeat russia militarily, without them joining me now from edinburgh scotland, stuart crawford, a retired lieutenant colonel in the british army, now working as a defense analyst, thank you sir for being with us. >> good morning, russian forces a gaining ground in ukraine's eastern donbas region, moving into the city of severodonetsk, how inevitable is it that russia would take control of that city and ultimately the donetsk and luhansk regions? >> i think that a recent report will indicate that perhaps the russians have taken about one
12:21 am
third of the city. but the fighting appears to be particularly fierce at the moment. and the progress is slow, and i suspect very costly. and whether they will take the city quickly, i very much doubt, but the seems to be an almost inevitability about the city falling at some point, if the assault, the intensity of the assault continues as it is at the moment but at present, the pocket is not cut off by the russians, ukrainians can still supply and reinforce, so it is not over yet. >> and of course, we know that russians foreign minister lavrov has indicated that liberating donetsk and luhansk is moscow's unconditional priority, his words, what does that indicate to you in terms of what russia's new military goals might be in ukraine. >> i think it shows that they are very much reduced from the goals that they may have had when the whole affair started
12:22 am
on the 24th of february. of course nobody is really clear on what vladimir putin's strategic aim was. we suspect that it was to topple the government in ukraine, but perhaps annex the whole country, and that's just not going to happen, and so the goals are very much reduced. and i think they're having to compromise, by reducing the aim to just getting control of the donbas province that they seem to be fixed on at the moment. >> in the u.s. president joe biden as we mentioned has said that he will not send rockets to ukraine, could be fired into russia. clearly worried about escalating tensions with moscow. so what weapons should be sent to ukraine at this juncture and what could they potentially achieve? of course kyiv say that this is problematic if they do not get these rockets >> we are coming slightly kunce fused with some of the terminology here the
12:23 am
option is still open for president biden to send the multiple launch rocket system which he clearly wants and needs. all he is saying really is that he is not going to send the missiles. the ordinance, the munitions with that system that can stretch far into russia and the standard rockets that come have a range of about 40 miles, or thereabouts and long-range things can go out to a 90 miles or beyond. so i think that our ask will be supplied to kyiv in due course, but also with what i would call the battlefield missiles, not the long range once, things >> so you think president biden said that was clearly to be heard in moscow? >> yes i think so. he obviously does not want to escalate things by supply ukraine with missiles that can
12:24 am
strike deep into russia. >> meantime, what is happening in the southern city of kherson? could ukrainian troops perhaps seize back control of that city and even go as far as moving into crimea next? you see that is a possibility? >> i do, i've been drawn bang in the strong for quite some time in because the main russian effort is in the donbas, that's where they're concentrated their forces, inevitably elsewhere will not be as strong. and perhaps even reduced to reinforce that main effort and that opens up the opportunity for a ukrainian counteroffensive when they have sufficient weaponry to do that. there appears to be a counteroffensive of sorts, developing around the south. and if they take care of some, that of course is the gateway to crimea and then who knows what might happen after that. >> of course, and when you look
12:25 am
at what is happening on the ground, how long do you think russia and ukraine can keep up this level of warfare and which side is likely to be victorious in the end you think? >> in a war as you know, it's a trite thing to say, there are no real winners. but the indication is that russia is getting weaker and we see the moving tanks, the tea 62 tanks, 50 years old. and at the same time ukraine is getting stronger, slowly as age from the west filters through and we are going to end up a stalemate over the summer and thereafter, peace negotiations will settle how it all ends. >> we shall see retired british army lieutenant colonel stewart crawford, thank you so much for joining us >> thank you for having me. >> still to come, hurricane agatha becomes a tropical storm after hitting mexico meteorologist karen mcguinness
