2:03 am
cnn report rers covering this story in multiple locations. melissa bell is live in kyiv with a look at where the war goes from here. we are in london with a look at the sanctions against russia. jeremy diamond is at the white house looking at why the administration isn't sending fighter jets to ukraine. i want to begin in kyiv. first, bring us up to speed on the latest on the strikes. then as we go into the second year of the war sox many unknowables, but any sense as to the realistic hopes from a ukrainian perspective? >> reporter: this first anniversary was a moment to take stock of where this war is one year on. 17% of the ukrainian territory now in russian hands. that's significantly down from away we have seen at other points over the course of the last year. and the question is where it goes from here. what appears to be happening is really the settling in to this sort of grinding, not quite
2:04 am
stalemate because there are advances and back ward steps from the point of the russians. of that front line, it has been fairly fixed with a great deal of fighting around specific towns that now lie in complete ruins. i'm thinking of sol dart and the towns that have been focus of the fighting they lie along that line that has been so butterly fought over as russian forces try desperately to move forward to take more of the donbas. we know they hold their aim is to take the whole. if bakhmut falls, they will be in better position. and this is why they have been so bitterly defending it. what we have seen over the last 24 hours beyond the strikes that you mentioned is that familiar pattern where there are
2:05 am
artillery strikes supported to try to move the lines forward. really piling in mercenaries as they can to try to move their positions forward. this was a moment to take stock of. this is why so much of what you heard yesterday and what president zelenskyy ask other official hs to say was not only that they are roud of what they have achieved, to defend their lines, but they also really want this to come to an end. have a listen to what president szelenskyy had to tell the furn journalists gathered here yesterday. >> we started to free our land from russian evil. we are return to security to international relations. and you and i can make to 2023
2:06 am
to be the year of the end of russian aggression . >> reporter: one of the big differences it's expected they will help ukraine make a difference. will it be enough to push the russians further back,s that one of the big questions. at this stage, that's definitely a hopeful and optimistic assessment on the part of president zelenskyy. >> appreciate that look at the big picture. melissa bell in kyiv, thank you. the u.s. has marked the one
2:07 am
year anniversary of the inkrags of ukraine with $2 billion in military aid and $10 billion of humanitarian help. one thing the u.s. won't commit to is supplying fighter jets president biden has been pressed again on whether or not america will send f-16 cwar planes to te conflict. our jeremy diamond is at the white house with the latest. >> reporter: president biden on friday marking the first anniversary of the war in ukraine by sitting down with the coalition of countries that have really held together the support for ukraine, as well as the corrupt thing sanctions response aimed directly at russia. the president holding a virtual meeting. along with that first anniversary, president biden pledging continued support for ukraine for as long as it takes. and also announcing a series of new actions from the administration. $2 billion of additional security assistance for ukraine. that includes munitions for
2:08 am
those rocket launchers and additional artillery shells, droves, counterdrone tuft, but one thing it didn't include was the f-16 fighter jets that the ukrainian president has been asking for. zelenskyy asked biden for those just days ago during their meet ing in the ukrainian capital. but president biden on friday in a new interview says that he's ruling out providing those f-16s for now. >> president zelenskyy continues to say what he really needs are f-16s. will you send f-16s? >> we're sending in what our military thinks he needs now he needs tanks. he needs artillery and air defense including another -- there's things he needs now. >> you don't thus he needs f-16s now? >> he doesn't. >> reporter: the biden administration unveiling one of the most significant sanctions actions to date targeting more than 200 individuals and entities ask with a specific
2:09 am
focus on russia's efforts to evade those western sanctions targeting companies including some in china that have been helping to back fill russia's defense production and keep its war machine churning there. president biden on friday also weighing in for the first time on this new proposed chinese peace plan. the president biden doesn't seem to think a whole lot of it saying if putin is applauding it, how could it be any good. the president saying the very notion of china negotiating peace in ukraine isn't rational. jeremy diamond, cnn, the white house. >> is we have more now from london with more on the european union sanctions. some of is the tenth round of sanctions. what they are going after and what difference they are hoping it will make. >> reporter: the sanctions are on the anniversary of the one year since russia's invasion of
2:10 am
ukraine. they released simultaneously with those u.s. sanctions that you heard about from the treasury department from our colleague there jeremy diamond. we have a graphic to show you to talk you through point by point what the sanctions are targeted. they are respected measures againstn'tties supporting the war including those spreading propaganda or delivering drones from russia during the conflict. measures against russian information and tugter export restrictions regarding dual use technology. now they are being described as some of the most forceful and far reaching sanctions by the eu since the start of the war. and it's intended to fill the gap, just as the u.s. sanctions as well did to fill the gap from previous rounds of sanctions and really provide that support that ukraine needs to win this war.
2:11 am
and you mugt ask what does a tenth round of sanctions really do at this stage. europe leaders say the sanctions are absolute ly working. they might be slow, but they are effective, particularly when it comes to the eu phasing out its use of russian oil and gas. that's had a major impact as the, u's foreign policy chief told us yesterday. take a listen. >> russia could a lot of money because of high prices of energy. and we're still dependent on russian gas imports. but that's over. europe is no longer consuming russian gas. where 40% dependent, now it's almost 6% dependency. no russian oil. a cap on russian oil. >> as you heard there, a significant reduction in the dependency of europe on russian oil and gas from 40% to 6%. the eu says that should continue
2:12 am
through this year. you heard from western allies during the past few days as they marked the one year anniversary of this conflict. the promise that we have heard over and over again, which is to support ukraine with whatever it takes for as long as it takes to win this war. president zelenskyy promising in return that victory will come this year. >> is appreciate that. parts of california used to sunshine and mild temperatures are instead watching snowfall and flood waters rise. the mountains could see up to five feet of snow in the coming days with winds in access of 60 miles per hour. people in the san diego area are being told to avoid any unnecessary travel. >> it's pretty treacherous
2:13 am
conditions. visit blt is pretty low. we have heavy rain in the cascade area and it's just a little difficult for motorists to try to get through there. >> reporter: snow isn't the only problem the area is is facing. heavy rain is expected to continue through saturday afternoon. some 6 million people are under a flash flood warnings that extends from santa barbara to los angeles. downtown l.a. could see 5 inches of rain before the storm is passed. meteorologist jennifer gray has more on what kind of weather california can expect in the next few days. >> incredible amounts of moisture aimed directly at california bringing relentless rains and heavy snowfall for the mountains. we have numerous warnings in place, watches in place, blizzard warnings going on. those are all of these areas shaded in orange. some areas this is the first blizzard warning ever issued for the county. we're looking at winter weather advisories, warnings in place across california and expanding
2:14 am
that this is far reach ing this is going to impact much of the west coast as we go through the weekend. high wind warnings in place for the southwest. we could see winds 50 to 60 miles per hour. sometimes even higher so we could see power outages throughout the overnight hours into saturday as well. here is the forecast of. 20 to 30, maybe 40, 50, 60 many the in the pounce taints. here's the forecast radar. we could see rain falling at an inch or two an hour across southern california. that's significant not to mention the very heavy snow in combination with the winds. we're going to see blinding conditions, especially through the mountain passes. by the time we get into sunday morning, you can see southern california is clear. still seeing rain and snow for northern california and that's where the bulk of the rain and the snow will be for sunday. but you can also see pushing into portions of eastern arizona
2:15 am
and into new mexico by sunday as well. so here's your forecast rain and snow accumulation. we could see anywhere from 4 to 6 inches of rain. you could see right there around los angeles. once you get into the mountains, we could see several feet of snow, as much as 5 feet in some places. so this is significant for the state. we're going to have huge impacts from this. we could see significant travel, poor visibilities, it's going to be hazardous for travel. power outages will be extremely likely across california. that flood threat is very real. we're going to see a moderate risk of flooding. that's the secondest to highest category talking about a flood threat ask that includes los angeles, santa barbara as well. we have been in extreme drought conditions across much of the west for a very long time. it is improving because of the
2:16 am
blockbuster rain and snow year we have had over the last couple of months,s especially. so we are seeing improvement with that. however, some of the reservoirs still below where they should be. getting there, but still below 80 and 90% of the historical average. high temperatures are dwoing to be a bit on the cooler side as well, as you can imagine. we'll see temperatures running about 10 degrees below normal. los angeles, your high temperatures on saturday is only 49 degrees. that's about 20 degrees below average. and then sunday and monday, we head up to 55 degrees, but still well below normal. san diego temperatures will be in the mid- to upper 50s. your normal high is right around 66 degrees. california isn't the only area that's feeling the blast of severe winter weather. camilla has more on the rough storms hitting other parts of the u.s.
2:17 am
>> reporter: coast to coast storms across the country. impacting more than 15 million people from new england where winter weather alerts are easing to the west coast where conditions are ramping up again. >> i have never seen it like this in california. >> reporter: snarling transit. >> going up the mountains, it's not safe to drive. >> reporter: more than 1100 flights have been cancelled with thousands more delays on friday. and nearly 1 million customers are suffering power outages nationwide, primarily in michigan and other parts of the midwest where freezing rain and ice have knocked out power lines and damaged trees. minnesota is now facing the twin hazards of snow and ice. minneapolis under a snow emergency buried under more than 13 inches of snow in the last
2:18 am
several days. in southern california, extremely rare blizzard warnings including the first ever blizzard warning for the san bernardino county mountains coming on top of flooding, mud slides, power outages and high winds. >> that was crazy. they were full branches falling down on the roof. >> reporter: residents stunned by snowfall and sightings of snow on top of sand at local beaches. >> we just want to be ready for worst case scenarios. >> reporter: the gusts in southern california are expected to reach up to 75 miles per hour. and for californians looking for a bright spot in the middle of back to back storms, a bald eagle shelter ing its eggs from the snowstorms in big bear is streaming to thousands of viewers waiting for two eggs to hatch. and some residents from washington, d.c. to jacksonville, florida, are watching winter around the c

2:24 am

2:25 am
>> i told a lie about being down there. i got myself wed to that. >> reporter: for hours, waters tried to box murdaugh is into a corner using cell phone data and timeline evidence from the night of the murders. >> i'm still not absolutely certain exactly how they ended up at the kennel. >> reporter: he said he drove his golf cart to meet his wife and son at the kennels that was just before paul murdaugh recorded this kennel video. murdaugh can be heard talking in the background. >> it could have been 8:47 before i left out of there. >> reporter: murdaugh estimated it's about a two-minute drive on the golf cart from the kennel to the main house, which would put him at 8:49 p.m. the very same time prosecutors say maggie and paul's phones ceased all activity, suggesting they were dead. once back at the house -- >> you laid down on the couch? >> that's correct. >> reporter: murdaugh's phone show nod activity from 8:09 to

2:27 am
manufacture an alibi. is that not true? >> that's absolutely incorrect. sdplr murdaugh's attempt to he had been trying to cooperate with investigators backfired. >> other than lying to them about going to the kennel, i was cooperative in every aspect of this investigation. >> very cooperative except the most important fact of all that you were at the murder scene with the victims just minutes before they died. >> reporter: the prosecutor did his best to prove to the jury no one other than alex murdaugh could have killed his wife and son. >> away you're telling this jury is it's a random vigilante to happened to know paul and maggie were there on june 7th, knew they would be at the kennels alone on june 7th, and knew you would not be there between the times of 8:49 and 9:02. >> you have a lot of factors in there, mr. waters. all of which, i do not agree with. >> reporter: getting a pack to

2:33 am
welcome back to all of you in the united states, canada and around the world. this is cnn newsroom. americans are far from united when it comes to whether their country is doing enough to help ukraine. on friday washington pledged another $2 billion in military assistance to kyiv in addition to $10 billion in humanitarian aud. a recent poll found 40% of americans feel the u.s. is doing just about enough to help ukraine. 30% say it's too much. 22% say too little. republicans are most likely to be in the too much category, while a major ity of democrats say the effort is about right. senior analyst ron brown stein joins me from los angeles. thank you for being here with us. so u.s. support hasn't waivered from a foreign policy point of view, but that doesn't seem to be true of the american public
2:34 am
at large. as we heard, it's still broad and strong, but it does seem to have softened slightly. talk to me about how it's evolved over the last year. >> almost inevitably, when you're in a long commitment in a military engagement, even without u.s. troops being directly involved, i think most thailss of public opinion on national security would thot be surprised to see an erosion of support around the edges. i don't think this is eroding in a way that's going to put significant pressure on biden to change direction or to retrench the u.s. commitment. it's eroding in a way that's going to increase the tension in the republican party between those in a position to stand up to aggression and those more in the trump pop list um brel a la that are more skeptical of what we're doing there. >> you talk about this natural
2:35 am
erosion. going into the the second year of the war now, how long do you think that support can last? >> i think as long as there's broad support in the opinion leadership, it can last awhile. i think it will erode, but i don't think it's going to collapse. usually what really undermines traditionally support for an american engagement are increased american casualty. scientists used to do formulas about wars like vietnam and how many casualties and how much support would erode. i think what's happening is there's a feedback loop going on in the republican party as there often is on issues where you have more loud voices or questioning whether with we should be doing this. it's being are flekted in polls showing decreased support and more politicians feel like they
2:36 am
have to hedge their bets and move away from it on the republican side. i think as long as the president himself is comfortable defending this, i think he will hold support for it among the voters who he realistically has a chance at winning in the first place. so that's why toentd think he's going to feel a lot of pressure or democrat this is congress are going to feel a lot of pressure to move away. what you're going to see instead is the sharpened divide between nikki haley, mike pence, mitch mcconnell, who are more supportive of this, and then marjorie taylor greene and many of the fox hosts and even ron desantis, who has moved in a trump of way toward being skpt call of what we're ding. >> you doing think this -- even though the democrats no longer control the house, you don't think it will affect policy is? maybe even not just the house republicans withdrawing support or limiting support, but maybe holding it hostage and using it as collateral to get concessions
2:37 am
on a different issue. >> i do think there is going to be growing pressure in the republican party because of the base, in parking lot of the voices in the conservative media ecosystem they listen to to take a hard line on this. you saw marjorie taylor greene's tweet saying basically that the people who -- the president is trying to lead us into world war iii and we have to look at this much more conservativically. that's probably the dominant position in the republican conference in the house. but whether it's 218 votes in the house is another issue. i do think reallies are going to put down pressure on our commitment there. and as you saw, may try to leverage it for other issues. but there's going to be a point of author mouse conflict within the party buzz there's still a substantial wing, especially in the senate, that says we have exactly the kind of aggression
2:38 am
that the u.s. has to stand up to. you can see the divide already emerging in the 24 republican field. you can see it between mitch mcconnell, who has been resolute in supporting this and kevin mccarthy, who has on many issues is really giving lead to the right flank of his conference. >> fascinating. thank you so much. appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. just a quick programming note. clarissa ward speaks to how the past year of war has changed their lives. watch her special report the will to win ukraine at war. sunday at 8:00 in new york and replay is on monday at 9:00 p.m. in london here on cnn. coming up, millions nigh je nigerians are voting. cnn is live for us in a moment. plus turkey has begun rebuilding homes after this

2:43 am
we have to true to change things. >> cnn's is live for us. what could decide this election? >> there seems to be quite a bit of excitement. the voters we have been speaking to are excited to vote because this is an interesting election. none of the candidates running for president is a former military leader or incumbent. for the first time, it's not the two established political parties there's a third force. there's also a third force, who is excited young people. a record number of them have come out to vote. 93 million, it's a logistical nugt marry. it's bigger. it's one of the biggest democratic exercises in all of
2:44 am
trik. so this is one of 140,000 across the nation. let gos is the larnlest number of registered voters. when polls close, the counting exercise begins. what are you coming to vote for today? what's an important issue in this election? >> everything in the country from the economy to the state of the nation. that's what we're voting for. >> how have you felt ab the campaigns and what the candidates have been offering were? >> interesting. for the first time we have options in this election. for too long, it was between the deep blue sea and a hard rock. >> the past couple weeks have been really difficult for a lot of people. more recently, it's led to a lot of chaotic scenes. people trying to find currency
2:45 am
has that be become bye-bye in the back of your mind? >> not really, no. it hasn't been an issue. i think it was necessary. it was important for the country to actually go through this reden delaware sign at this time. just to ensure that the president saud, votes will not be purchased. that's going to happen. people will come out and vote the issues and not for their pockets or bellies. >> one analysis says it all comes down to ethnicity and religion. how did you feel about that? sglu don't share that opinion actually. i if i for the first time, people are looking beyond ethnicity and religion and looking to what the candidates can deliver. think at this time, it's important that we all look, and i think a lot of people have come on. that's why it's quite high. people are looking beyond the things that pivotal importance to now competence and what you have to offer to the nation and how this nation will be managed
2:46 am
back to a place of productivity and growth. >> thank you so much. so the last election, only a third of the people turned out. if thises happens, that will maybe determine who becomes president. >> i like when she said we have hope on the ballot. very poignant. larry, thank you so much. appreciate that. > it's been nearly three weeks since that powerful earthquake hit turkey and syria and the death toll keeps rising. on friday the number of lives lost past 50,000 across both countries, nearly 6,000 victims were in northern syria, the vast majority were in turkey. we have more from turkey. so so much need for housing, but it's something they need to get right. has the massive rebuilding effort already started? >> reporter: there's pressure on the government here in turkey to
2:47 am
begin that process. we are learning excavation work has begun in two districts in the province in south turkey for more than 800 new homes for those that have been displaced there's also plans in the works for the construction of more than 30,000 new apartments across southeast turkey, which are set to begin in march. we can already see this process getting underway, but this has also drawn some criticism. we heard from the union of architects and engineers here, this is simply too hasty. there still needs to be more work to prepare for the construction of these buildings, more gee lolk call investigations needed to ensure these new buildings set to be constructed will be safe. there's ksh because this country is still seeing aftershocks on a
2:48 am
daily basis. this region in southeast turkey has seen more than 8,000 aftershocks since that earthquake three weeks ago. that's the same amount of tremors in normal circumstances in about four months. so you can imagine the apprehension, the concern that many have when they are hearing these buildings are already beginning to be set up and construction workers are underway. but there's a huge amount of pressure on the turkish government because thousands of people, hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by this earthquake. at least 900,000 people are already living in tents across camp this is this region. we have visited some of the tent cities across this region as well as areas that were among the hardest hit by this. when you see the destruction on the street, it feels like a
2:49 am
