"they made all the men go outside and checked their papers," he tells me. "and if they found anything they didn't like, they would shoot them immediately and not ask any questions."
he says the russians shot everyone under the age of 50. you're 53, so, you made it by three years. mykola is desperate to share his story. you've told me what's happened. i'd like to know what you feel. but the mental toll this has taken is clear. you're shaking. his friends were murdered in front of him. one with a grenade. he had to collect his body parts. they've been buried just in the gardens, alongside this car. behind the car here you can see another grave. and this is a story that's been replicated again and again and again here. and this is what russian soldiers did to these homes. i don't think there's any better way of showing you just how much civilians have been on the front line of this war. someone's living room, now a war zone. russians were squatting here, were living here, they occupied this place, and now it's destroyed. and at the church nearby, graphic images of what appears
to be yet another mass grave. you can see maybe six to seven bodies in black bags, and there will be more beneath the earth. and i can see bodies of people who have just been thrown in as they are. hands and legs poking out of the soil. this town is now one big crime scene. a crime scene which now needs investigating. we met a team from human rights watch gathering evidence of war crimes. >> what we've heard from residents, what we've been documenting, is really horrific. including reports that russian forces have pulled people out of their homes, briefly interrogated them, and then executed them. >> reporter: ukrainian president zelenskyy was visibly shaken when he visited bucha yesterday. today, he bitterly condemned russian brutality in his first address to the united nations security council. >> translator: they killed entire families, adults and children, and they tried to burn the bodies. the civilians were crushed by tanks while sitting in their cars in the middle of the road,
just for their pleasure. they cut off limbs, slashed their throats, women were raped and killed in front of their children. >> reporter: zelenskyy said the united nations should be, quote, "simply closed," if it doesn't act to punish russia. the kremlin claims the scenes of corpses in bucha are staged, but the dead have been here for days, even weeks. the ukrainian military says this video was shot in early march, and shows a cyclist making their way through the streets. a russian tank can then be seen opening fire. images released just days ago appear to show the dead body still lying there weeks later next to the bicycle. city after city has been laid waste by russian forces, with no target offlimits. in mykolaiv in the south, ukrainian officials released video showing the moment an ambulance is hit outside a children's hospital. hundreds of people today were racing to escape the fighting in eastern ukraine, which is only expected to get worse. more than 11 million ukrainians have now fled their homes since the russians invaded. american officials today said
the u.s. and its allies would push to get russia suspended from the united nations human rights council because of its unrestrained brutality. the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. spoke of "filtration camps," where she said russian forces are separating families and "reportedly making tens of thousands of ukrainian civilians relocate to russia." >> i do not need to spell out what these so-called filtration camps are reminiscent of. it's chilling and we cannot look away. >> reporter: and tonight, a warning from the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff about the risks ahead. >> the russian invasion of ukraine is threatening to undermine not only european peace and stability, but global peace and stability that my parents and a generation of americans fought so hard to defend. >> and james longman joining us again tonight from the ukrainian capital. and james, president zelenskyy we all heard today warning what the world is seeing in bucha is likely just the beginning, saying there will be atrocities revealed as russians
withdrew from more parts of ukraine? >> reporter: well, now, david, we aren't just seeing the destruction and the dead, we are hearing from those who survived. and just about everywhere you go here, the stories are almost beyond imagination. and, yes, there is a sense that the further north you go, the further into areas where russians stayed for longer, the worse the atrocities may get. david? >> james longman leading us off from kyiv again tonight. james, thank you. and we have learned that president biden will issue a new round of sanctions tomorrow. the biden administration working with u.s. allies. let's get right to our senior white house correspondent mary bruce, live at the white house tonight. and mary, what do we know so far about the sanctions and who the u.s. hopes to target this time? >> reporter: well, david, sources tell us that this new package of sanctions from the u.s. and european allies is designed to impose acute economic harm on russia and to make it more difficult for putin to fund his war. it will ban all new investments in russia. it will increase sanctions on russian financial institutions and go after russian government officials directly and their families. but the white house is acknowledging that the impact of
sanctions will take some time to be felt. they say putin isn't going to suddenly change his behavior overnight. and in the meantime, they are warning that more atrocities like the killings in bucha are likely to be discovered. david? >> all right, we'll be standing by to hear about these sanctions tomorrow. mary, thank you. our coverage of the war in ukraine for tonight. in the meantime, we move on here this evening to the tornado emergency playing out as we're on the air tonight. warnings and watches from florida to the carolinas. already tonight, at least six confirmed tornadoes in texas and mississippi. the images tonight, the damage before dawn. this is johnson county, texas. a suspected tornado blowing across a parking lot in newton, mississippi. the tornado emergency in south carolina. and look at this. at auburn university in alabama, students were told to shelter in place for a time. it's been a dangerous day again. that system on the move, as i mentioned, florida toll the carolinas now in the coming hours. and then over the next 24 hours, washington, d.c., philly, new york. so, we'll time this out for you.

weather pattern. david? >> let's just get there. all right, lee goldberg, our thanks to you again tonight. to other news now, and next this evening, police in erie, pennsylvania, are searching at this hour for a suspect wanted for a school shooting in erie. police say a student was shot and wounded at erie high school, the shooter then running off. the victim rushed to the hospital. they're expected to survive. the school placed on lockdown while police secured that building. and from sacramento tonight, authorities are now reporting new arrests after that deadly mass shooting. smiley martin taken into custody while hospitalized with abc news has learned he was released from prison just weeks ago and is now charged with having a machine gun. six people were killed and 12 injured. police arresting his brother dandrae martin yesterday. a third person seen carrying a gun in the aftermath has also now been arrested. now to washington tonight, and ivanka trump testifying before the house january 6th committee for nearly eight hours today. she was still antsing questians questions late today. and this question tonight, will americans ever see these interviews by the january 6th
committee? here's our chief washington correspondent jonathan karl tonight. >> reporter: she was at her father's side on january 6th. with him backstage before the rally where he told his supporters to fight like hell and to march to the capitol. >> hi, ivanka. >> reporter: today, ivanka trump spent nearly eight hours answering questions from the january 6th committee. other witnesses have told the committee that while the capitol was under attack, she had been urging her father to do something. >> we have first-hand testimony that his daughter ivanka went in at least twice to ask him to please stop this violence. >> reporter: her husband jared kushner testified last week. according to multiple trump white house sources, the couple had privately told others they had deep reservations about trump's efforts to overturn the election. but neither ivanka trump nor her husband have said that publicly and on january 6th, the only public statement from either of them was a since deleted tweet from ivanka where she called for
an end to the violence, and called the people who stormed the capitol, quote, american patriots. it's unlikely that ivanka trump will testify when the committee has its public hearings in the coming months, but everything that she said in today's closed deposition was videotaped and will likely become part of the public record. as for what she said, the committee chairman said that unlike some other white house witnesses, she did not take the fifth, she did not invoke executive privilege, she answered their questions. david? >> jon karl live in washington. jon, thank you. now to the pandemic tonight. the new omicron subvariant, ba.2, is now making up nearly three-quarters of all new infections here in the u.s. today, cdc director dr. rochelle walensky encouraging people 50 and older with underlying conditions and everyone 65 and older to get the new booster shot. she also said they may need another shot in the fall. the white house today announcing the creation of a task force on long covid or prolonged illness from covid-19. we're also tracking overseas tonight, china's largest city shanghai extending its lockdown
